Trouble at Liverpool

Mamadou Sakho is likely to be frozen out of the first team of Liverpool by Jurgen Klopp after the centre-back refused to leave the club during the summer transfer window.

According to the Daily Mirror, Sakho rejected moves to West Brom, Stoke and Turkish club Besiktas, despite being told by Klopp to prove himself at another club.

Sakho had been earlier on sent back from the Reds' pre-season tour of North America for disciplinary breaches.

He has not played since being banned for failing a drugs test late last season – a decision that was later reversed by Uefa who cleared him of doping charges.

Klopp is reported to be deeply frustrated with Sakho's refusal to exit and thus he is prepared to exile him from the first team until January when the transfer window reopens.

The defender did not feature in any of Liverpools pre-season fixtures due to an Achilles injury.

He angered Klopp by breaching discipline three times during the North American tour – arriving late for a team flight, missing a team meal and skipping a treatment session in California.
