Doubts over Mamadou Sakho’s future after Liverpool defender sent home from America

Mamadou Sakho faces an uncertain future at Liverpool after being sent home from their pre-season tour of America. The France international will arrive back in the UK on Tuesday after manager Jurgen Klopp took the decision to cut short his stay in the States.

Sakho had been receiving treatment on an Achilles injury, which will rule him out of the start of the Premier League season. However, the ECHO understands that concerns had been raised about the 26-year-old’s attitude around the club’s training camp in California and that’s prompted his swift return to the UK.

Sakho was booked on the same overnight flight to Heathrow as left-back Brad Smith, who is en route to Bournemouth to undergo a medical ahead of completing a £6million move. Liverpool confirmed that the former Paris Saint-Germain captain had flown home but declined to comment on the reasons behind the decision.

Sakho will continue to have treatment at Melwood while the Reds complete their US tour commitments with matches against Chelsea, AC Milan and Roma over the coming week.
