A fan favourite struggling to win his place back into the first team. Defensively we still have issues and I can’t help but feel that tough tackling Sakho partnered with Matip the silky smooth defender will address alot of those issues. Both are around the same age as well. I think of them as a Skrtel/Agger partnership except the right footed defender being more of a ball player and the left footed defender the tough tackler. Hopefully Klopp and Sakho can somehow reconcile their differences.
I’m not at all suggesting that Klopp wasn’t right by sending Sakho home after the doping and lack of discipline but if we are going to achieve something special this season, the team has to be defensively powerful and I can’t help but feel that a Sakho on the top of his game together with Matip can get us there.
Klavan provides good backup, Joe Gomez needs plenty of time and Lucas can do a job but is no starter at CB. Having 3 top CBs in Lovren, Sakho and Matip is going to help get through the Xmas/New year schedule. The journos have stopped asking about Sakho. He is the forgotten man and I think he will leave in January.
