Mamadou Sakho has become an unwanted problem for Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool.

Having been accused of doping, misbehaved on the Reds' summer tour of America and since rejected loan moves to Stoke City and West Brom, the Frenchman has caused his club a lot of frustration.

Whether it be determination or desperation that Sakho wants to stay at Anfield remains unknown but what's certain is Liverpool need to find a solution - and fast.

Following the centre-back's misdemeanours stateside, which saw him sent home early, Klopp hinted that he still has a future on Merseyside.

He said in late July: "He missed the departure of the plane, he missed a session and then was late for a meal.

"I have to build a group here, I have to start anew, so I thought it maybe made sense that he flew home to Liverpool and after eight days, when we come back, we can talk about it.

"But it's not that serious. We had no argument. I spoke. You cannot argue when only one person is speaking, that's all."

The dust has settled on Sakho's antics in America and, according to the Liverpool Echo, Klopp has now told the France international how he can save his Liverpool career.

And his advice? To go out on loan and prove his fitness and professionalism.

Sounds reasonable, of course, but Sakho won't like the thought of leaving Liverpool in the knowledge that Klopp now has summer signings Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan at his disposal.

Against Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Saturday, the Reds started with Matip and Dejan Lovren at the back and looked solid throughout.

Danny Rose's goal with 20 minutes remaining meant Liverpool left with just a point but the way they handled Harry Kane and co. pleased Klopp.

"I still feel a little bit disappointed, [even though] we took a point against Tottenham," he said. "When we played like this then I think we could have won the game, but it is like it is.

"We have to accept all the things that happened around [the game]. There were not plenty more chances for a home game for a football-playing team, a good side like Tottenham. This says a lot about our defending.

"But on the other hand, we had chances. This game showed again what we can do, how we can play.

"It was not only about pressing and things like this, although we did it really well. We were really flexible in offensive defending and then played football. We had wonderful moments with passing and all that stuff, the direction in our game."
