Last weekend, Liverpool's Mamadou Sakho went on a bit of a rant about his current predicament in the club's first team on social media platform, Snapchat.

The outburst was then followed by Jurgen Klopp handing the Frenchman his first appearance of the season, however, it was in the U23 Premier League International Cup game against Wolfsburg - further underlining the 26-year-old's situation at Anfield.

Naturally, the enigmatic German manager was not pleased with the altercation and proceeded to warn the rest of his squad to carefully monitor their actions on social media to avoid a repeat of such an incident, according to the Guardian.

Players are constantly engaged in social media activities in the modern age of football and Klopp is keen to prevent a recurrence of this issue in the future.

The situation is simply another to add to the list of Sakho's dismal few months in his footballing career which has seen his stock in the game plummet.

Towards the tail end of last season, the former Paris Saint-Germain defender had become a key man at Anfield, establishing himself at the heart of Klopp's defence.

However, a ban for a failed drugs test, which was later overturned, followed which was followed by an early departure from the club's preseason tour due to unprofessional conduct.

Now, the Frenchman's career in England is hanging by a thread and judging by the start Liverpool have made to the season, they are better off without the hot headed defender.

The Reds have accrued 13 points from their opening six games of the season, including impressive victories over Arsenal, Leicester and Chelsea.

Klopp has been widely praised for his 'gegenpressing' system so far this season and it will be interesting to see whether his players can maintain his high physical standards for the entirety of the campaign.

At this moment in time, Liverpool look like genuine title contenders and have been made second favourites for the crown at 5/1 by most book makers.

Can they go one better than their runners up spot in 2013/14? They certainly could, no European football could also be a blessing in disguise.
