Liverpool round-up: Mamadou Sakho ruled out for two months with injury

Published 2 Comments

Liverpool supporters, hello and welcome.

It may just seem like any old Tuesday to you - and it is, in many respects - but that doesn’t mean we aren’t busy working on ways to improve your experience here at GiveMeSport.

We’ve created a neat little round-up packed full of the latest information. You should find most of it, if not all of it, interesting. Let us know your thoughts in the box provided below.

Sakho injury blow

Just when the going was good for Mamadou Sakho a cruel twist of fate has threatened to derail his season with Liverpool.

The French defender is expected to be out for as long as two months with a knee injury, having fallen awkwardly during the loss to Crystal Palace at the weekend, or so say The Independent.

Sakho did avoid suffering a cruciate injury - one that would have inevitably been far worse - but all the same a scan on Monday confirmed that Jurgen Klopp is going to have to fiddle with his back-line for the foreseeable future.

The fan reaction is not good at the moment:

Ibe the next Lewandowski?

Now, Jordon Ibe is another who is enjoying the current campaign, and he’s revealed that he wants to become Liverpool’s version of Robert Lewandowski in that he’s nurtured by Klopp until he becomes one of the best in the world.

Hopefully, he won’t do a Lewandowski and become a great player before moving to a fierce rival. Nobody wants that.

In the meantime, let's have another look at this:

Or this, it's equally amusing:

Pato rumours false?

Lastly, reports relayed yesterday concerning Liverpool gearing up to sign Alexandre Pato in January - backed up by comments from Corinthians chief Roberto de Andrade - appear to be false.


You may say ‘surprise, surprise’, but the dismissal has only been verified as far as you trust

We’re happy to wait until an official source tells us otherwise before we throw the rumour in the bin. Let us know your thoughts in the comments box.

Here’s how certain fans reacted to the initial news yesterday:
