Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho claims he harbours no desire to pursue a return transfer to Paris Saint-Germain, and ’s ‘very happy’ after completing his first season at Anfield. Sakho swapped Paris for Merseyside last summer and, after injury, was able to establish himself as a starting centre-back.
The Reds, of course, so very nearly were able to clinch a first league title for 24 years, only to see their dreams finally extinguished by Manchester City on the last day of the season. But it was still a campaign to remember for Sakho and his Liverpool teammates.
Liverpool could face Sakho’s former club next term with PSG also set to contest the Champions League after capturing the Ligue 1 title for the second successive season. Sakho, though, says a move back to the Parc des Princes is not in his thoughts, and Liverpool is the ideal place for him to continue his development.
“A return to PSG? No, it is not in my future plans, but the story is not over with the city of Paris,” Sakho said, according to Le10Sport.
“For now, I am very content in Liverpool, I discovered a new world, a new language, a new country, I am very very happy.”
Sakho’s performances for Liverpool have earned the 24-year-old a place in Didier Deschamps squad for the World Cup, which begins in Brazil on June 12. France have been drawn in arguably the easiest group, with their opponents Honduras, Switzerland and Ecuador.
