We could be witnessing the final throes of Mamadou Sakho’s Liverpool career.
That’s according to Emmanual Petit and Christophe Dugarry, who have both been hugely critical of the French international’s antics over the weekend.
On the morning of our game against Hull, Sakho took to Snapchat to lambast the club’s “lies” about his fitness. Needless to say, Klopp was not too impressed about the tirade in his post-match press conference.
Petit and Dugarry, who were both in France’s squad when they lifted the World Cup in 1998, have slammed their fellow countryman in interviews with the French media today.
“He doesn’t need to talk to his fans,” Dugarry told SFR Sport in France. “He needs to talk to his coach.
“What is he doing talking to his fans at three in the morning? With emojis and all that?
“We don’t give a s**t. We’re not at the circus. If you have a problem, go talk to your coach, find a solution, solve the problem.
“Why does he need to talk to his ‘fans?’ Ronaldo and Messi have fans, the others… you shouldn’t take yourself for what you aren’t.” (cited on Echo).
“I don’t get the impression Klopp is someone inflexible, that his door is closed,” added Petit.
“On the contrary, I get the impression he’s very close to his players. He showed that last year with his management, with his coaching.
“It’s a shame. I think it’s another outburst from him (Sakho), and it could be fatal.”
Sakho has not kicked a ball for us since April. He was initially banned for 30 days for failing a drugs test, and even though he was eventually found innocent, he was then injured and sent home from the tour of the USA for bad behaviour.
Does he deserve another chance? Let us know what you think.
