Mamadou Sakho - Should He Stay or Should He Go?

Does Mamadou Sakho deserve a second chance at Liverpool? Depending on whom you talk to, you will get varying replies. Some like myself will say hell yes, while others will say no — he’s burned his bridges and its time he moves on. I would like to see Jurgen Klopp, forgive and forget Sakho’s past and let bygones be bygones, but I simply cannot see that happening.

Liverpool Broken by Benteke Brace as Sakho Celebrates - Liverpool 1, Crystal Palace 2

By Umarah Naz As Liverpool succumbed to Crystal Palace at Anfield (again!), it was a case of which centre-back infuriated us the most. Was it the inept display by Dejan Lovren or his ex, Mamadou Sakho, celebrating Christian Benteke’s equaliser? Probably the former, and rightly so. As much as Sakho giving LFC the proverbial slap in the face irked many, it was our own flaws that lost us the game.

Glen Johnson – 6.5 Can still be wasteful at times but provided one pinpoint cross for Suarez’s header. Offered lots of width on the right and made some good overlapping runs, spending most of his time in attacking positions. Martin continue reading
