Following Mamadou Sakho’s antics on the Friday evening before Saturday’s victory v Hull, Jurgen Klopp has issued warnings to his squad about their future conduct.
Liverpool’s manager was asked about the defender and his future during yesterday’s pre-match press conference ahead of the Swansea clash on Saturday.
Pushed on whether our Frenchman had to work hard and stay off the internet, in order to salvage his Liverpool career, Klopp told the Guardian: “Those two things are not a rule for Mamadou Sakho. It is a rule for every player. Work hard and do your best. The rest of this I spoke to the team about and I spoke to Mama and we spoke together and that’s it. From my side everything is done and now we can carry on. There is nothing else to say.”
Sakho is lucky he’s being let off, in our opinion, but that doesn’t mean he’ll necessarily get himself back in the starting XI any time soon.
Klopp has laid down the line to the rest of the squad, but this is obvious stuff. Anyone contracted to Liverpool should represent us as a club perfectly at all times – even when they’re discontented.
We really hope no more embarrassing, late night social posts creep up on us this campaign. They don’t do the player in question any good, the club, or the supporters.
