Is Money Enough To Keep Sakho At Anfield ?

The news that Liverpool are reportedly offering Mamadou Sakho a new long-term contract is encouraging news for Liverpool supporters after concerns that he could be on his way out of Anfield after losing his place to Dejan Lovren in Liverpool’s defence.

Many supporters including myself regard Sakho as the better defender and are currently disappointed to see the French international left out for Lovren who had a disappointing first season at Anfield.

But Brendan Rodgers is obviously keen to give Lovren another chance after spending a lot of money to bring him to Anfield last summer and has chosen to start the Croatian with Martin Skrtel at the heart of Liverpool’s defence for the first two games of the season.

In fairness to Lovren he has played well in the two Premier League victories Liverpool have recorded this season without conceding a goal.

Lovren deserves to keep his place in the team and Sakho will just have to stay patient until he gets his chance.

Reports have suggested that Roma and Bayer Leverkusen have been showing an interest in Sakho and this offer of an improved contract for Sakho may well be an attempt to fend of competition.

It is believed Sakho will increase his wages from £75,000-a-week to £100,000-a-week but I don’t think money will be the defender’s priority.

Sakho will want to know that he has the chance of playing regularly in Liverpool’s defence to improve his chances of featuring for his country.

With Kolo Toure the only other experienced centre-back at the club Liverpool can’t afford to lose Sakho.

Hopefully Sakho will accept the new deal and wait his chance to get back into Liverpool’s defence because he is better than Lovren.

    Neither Sakho nor Lovren is good enough. we need a centre half like Mat Hummels to play alongside Skrtel.
    Both Sakho and Lovren should be sold and Kolo Toure must be released to easy the wage bill.
