Carragher lambasts Mamadou Sakho over failed drugs test

Posted by

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has lashed out at our French defender Mamadou Sakho, labelling him a “let-down” and saying his actions are “unacceptable”.

“I think he’s let himself and his club down badly, because he was becoming a really important player for Liverpool,” said Jamie (via Echo).

“There are certainly questions to be asked of him, because he’s let himself down badly.

“He’s had a great campaign. He’s one of the leaders of the team now. You think of the Borussia Dortmund game, the Manchester United games especially, how well he played in those.

“It’s how Liverpool fill that void. But for a professional footballer – or any sportsman, really – it’s not acceptable.”

Sakho must decide by Tuesday whether or not he wants his “B Sample” to be tested. It was taken at the same time as the first test, and can be tested if the player believes his original sample was either unreliable or cross-contaminated.

If he either accepts the charge or his B Sample is also positive, he could face a lengthy ban and a hefty fine.
