Sakho: Fans deserve to know the truth

Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho has risked the wrath of manager Jurgen Klopp after vowing to tell fans the truth over his first-team absence.

In a bizarre series of messages posted on social networking site Snapchat, the France international suggested he was in the dark as to why he had not been included in the club's matchday squad in recent times.

He went on to reveal that he had been fit and raring to go for the past three weeks, before claiming he had been barred from representing the club's reserve team.

"I accept my situation but I can't accept the lie," Sakho wrote. "The fans deserve to know the truth.

"It is three weeks and I am fit to play games. I have finished all my rehabilitation.

"They don't want me to play with the second team, lol. Why? I don't know."

He added: "Still working hard like a scouse soldier.

"Still not talking because I want to speak on the 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'."

After his latest outburst, Sakho is unlikely to be involved when the Reds lock horns with Hull City at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.
