Mamadou Sakho’s Injury Not As Bad As First Feared

Mamadou Sakho’s knee injury isn’t as bad as first feared Liverpool Manager, Jurgen Klopp, revealed on Friday during a press conference.

It was initially feared that Sakho had suffered a serious injury after being stretchered off during the Premier League fixture with Tottenham Hotspur at Selhurst Park on Wednesday.

However, it now appears that Sakho will only miss weeks, rather than months though it will still mean he won’t play again this season.

The Liverpool manager is quoted by the club’s official website as saying: “First of all, I think you saw the pictures with Mamadou, it looked really awful so it could have been nearly everything.

“Since we got the (scan) images from Crystal Palace, we know there are no ligaments involved, so in a situation like this – and maybe not for Crystal Palace – but for the player it’s the best thing he could get.

“I think he is out for a few weeks, but that is something that will be good at the end, but at the end of the season each injury is a big blow because there is not a lot of time to recover.”

As the injury doesn’t appear to be serious it means Sakho won’t be hindered in transferring to another club should one come calling. Hopefully Palace? Stranger things have happened!
