Mamadou Sakho has effectively ended his Liverpool career. That’s the view of most fans after the defender posted a series of Snapchat messages showing his frustration at his situation.
Sakho wrote on the social media platform late on Friday night:
“Now it’s 3 weeks since I am fit to play games. I finish all my rehabilitation work. They don’t want me to play also with second team lol! Why I don’t know.”
“Still working hard like Scouse Soldier! Still not talking cos I want speak on pitch.. I will speak soon for the people who support me and don’t understand the situation.
“Still happy to live in my “Liverpool Country” with my family, hope to have chance to play soon to give my best like I try to do always!
“I accept my situation but I can’t accept the lie… The fans deserve to know the true! Thanks for your support.”
It’s a dangerous move from the Frenchman, after he turned down a loan move away from the club last month and against the manager’s advice.
Fans now are struggling to see a way back for Sakho, with this turn in events hardly likely to prove his professionalism or help his cause with Jurgen Klopp:
So the man who was sent home from the pre-season tour for an unprofessional attitude takes to snapchat to moan about his current situation ?

As much as I like Sakho, this is Klopp's ruthless side and it's similar to Guardiola's.

Well, I was convinced his LFC career was over already. Sigh. What a cluster… https://t.co/igTNaS9qZB

Sakho has probably just ended his Liverpool career there. He's more stupid than we thought.

the only thing he's showed is that he's a man child with a serious fucking attitude problem.

It's looked pretty ominous for him since pre season. Hard to imagine seeing him play for us again…
— LFC Chatter (@LFC_chatter) September 24, 2016
is was digging a whole before them snapchats. But now he's dug his grave. He won't play again, he should move on
— John Connor (@JohnConnor_LFC) September 24, 2016
if he stops acting like a 4 year old maybe. ??

Stuff like this that could see him permanently pushed out and ending his career at Sunderland. Talent but no sense. https://t.co/YQrNQx2w86

Well that's the final nail in the coffin then. Disappointing but it is what it is.
— Robin (@Robin8277) September 24, 2016
aka how to never play under Klopp again.
— Dave P (@Sarkies_Proxy) September 24, 2016
don't teenage girls go on snapchat to bitch about their friends?

As one pointed out, the timing of this was hardly wise, the night before an important home match where Klopp has called for a positive atmosphere throughout the club:
Klopp will have him training on his own again now for doing this JUST before a game. Disruptive! Shot yaself in foot Mama!

wrong time sakho

Some fans also saw Sakho’s side though, and at least the defender wants to be playing:
Not a fan of the way Sakho acted but I'd rather a player hungry to play than one who's happy to sit around and pick up a pay cheque
