Mamadou Sakho hits out at Liverpool on Snapchat

Published 15 Comments

Mamadou Sakho threw his Liverpool future into further doubt on Saturday morning after apparently claiming Jurgen Klopp was purposely keeping him out of both the senior and the reserve squad.

The Frenchman has yet to feature for the club this season after being sent home from their preseason tour of America. At the time, it was claimed he had returned to England to undergo treatment on an injury but it is now understood he was thrown out by Klopp for three breaches of club rules.

But there is yet to be a clear explanation from the German manager with his most recent comments claiming the centre-back was not playing because he was still not back to full fitness.

“It's not about how the player feels, it is about how close I feel he is – and it is a long, long time since he last played,” the German coach said earlier this week.

“Of course he is closer to fitness, but there is a big difference between match fitness and everything. All the other players have not had a long break, so it makes more sense if we use them.”

Snapchat Story

Sakho, speaking on his Snapchat, refutes this, saying he has been ready to play for three weeks.

Word for word, including errors, this is what Sakho wrote:

“Now it’s 3 weeks since I am fit to play games,” wrote Sakho on Snapchat. “I finish all my rehabilitation work. They don’t want me to play also with second team lol! Why I don’t know.”

“Still working hard like Scouse Soldier! Still not talking cos I want speak on pitch.. I will speak soon for the people who support me and don’t understand the situation.

“Still happy to live in my 'Liverpool Country' with my family, hope to have chance to play soon to give my best like I try to do always!

“I accept my situation but I can’t accept the lie… The fans deserve to know the true! Thanks for your support.”

And this is reportedly an image of those Snapchats:


Fan reaction

As you can imagine, Sakho is now one of the top trends on Twitter in the United Kingdom with Liverpool fans trying to decide whether he is right or wrong to come out. The consensus appears to be that he has acted unprofessionally.
