(Video) Mamadou Sakho’s passing highlights v Chelsea shows he’s unbelievable on the ball

Posted by

There genuinely was once a myth created by those who didn’t watch football properly that Mamadou Sakho was a liability with the ball at his feet.

It’s utter nonsense, and he’s been proving it all season. No player has been as consistently impressive as our French centre-half, and his performance against Chelsea symbolised how important he is to our cause.

Time and time again he zipped impressive, forward passes into midfield – but still completed 92% of them.

This season, his 91.3% completion ratio is the fourth best in the Premier League (via WhoScored).

Watch his individual highlights below. He’s as good as any centre-back in the top flight.
