Sakho returns to training

    Sakho caused controversy when Palace won 2-1 at Anfield

    Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho has returned to training with the club.

    The former Paris Saint Germain player uploaded a video of himself back in training on Merseyside.

    The France international spent the second half of last season on loan at Premier League side Crystal Palace after testing the patience of manager Jurgen Klopp.

    Klopp told Sakho to leave the club on loan last Summer in order to prove himself and show that he could improve his attitude – but the defender ignored the instruction and vowed to regain his place in the team.

    He was banished to the under-23 squad before leaving on loan in January this year for what turned out to be an impressive loan spell at Selhurst Park.

    The London club wanted to keep Sakho, but were not keen on paying the £30m price tag placed on the centre-back by Liverpool and have since changed managers.

    Dutchman Frank de Boer has taken over from ex-England boss Sam Allardyce after he decided to end his brief spell in charge of Palace and it remains to be seen whether the former Ajax man wants to pursue a deal.

    Sakho was going to be included in a part-exchange offer for Southampton defender Virgil Van Dijk, but his wage demands are too high for the Saints.
