Liverpool have told Mamadou Sakho that unless he leaves the club on loan in the next 48 hours, he’ll be sidelined for an entire season and will only be able to play for the Under-23s.
Bizarrely, we’re refusing to sell him permanently and have told him he has a future at Anfield – but have told him in no uncertain terms he needs to leave the club and prove both his fitness and professionalism elsewhere.
This is a man who captained PSG as a teenager, has multiple international caps and cost us close to £20m.
Here’s some of the online reaction… The stuff we can use, anyway…

Ridiculous this. What the hell happened between them? Did Sakho say/do something after the return from preseason? https://t.co/pbPgqqPOvR

That whole Sakho situation is ridiculous. 3 senior center backs on the clubs books. Talk about biting your nose off to spite your face

@KopJaffer_LFC Crazy. 2-3 injuries away from a complete crisis defensively, especially if Sakho is shoved out the door.

@MarkDunne89 i dont think anyone can argue and say hes not our best CB. Lovren has improved massively, but sakho is/was better than him.

It’s not even the getting rid of Sakho that bothers me… It’s the fact that we’re not even bringing in a fucking replacement for him!

If it was Rodgers binning Sakho, that’d be WW3

Has Sakho shagged Klopps wife? Baffling

My love for Sakho is unconditional. Leader on and off the pitch. Gives to charity and cares about the fans also called Liverpool a country.
