At the end of the transfer window, Mamadou Sakho looked like he was being frozen out by Jurgen Klopp.
Liverpool’s manager had told him to find a club on loan, having already sent him home from pre-season tour of America.
But these latest quotes suggest the Frenchman will come back into consideration as soon as he gains full fitness…
The boss was speaking ahead of our trip to Chelsea on Friday, claiming that Emre Can is in the same boat as Sakho – the pair just need time on the training ground before they’ll earn minutes.
Klopp says Lovren is available. But Can won’t play as he needs more training. “We need to make him fit like Mama.”

This is positive news for fans of Sakho, but less positive for those who wanted Can back int he side for the Stamford Bridge clash…
Without the German, Liverpool are certain to stick with the midfield trio Klopp’s picked in every game so far this Premier League campaign: Jordan Henderson, Gini Wijnaldum and Adam Lallana.
At the back, Dejan Lovren will come back in for Lucas – as the tweet by James Pearce intimates.
