Defender Mamadou Sakho has revealed that he would “gladly” wear the Liverpool shirt again, but he is so far unsure about where his future lies.
Sakho, 27, fell out with Reds boss Jurgen Klopp in the summer and was sent home from the club’s tour of the United States.
This saw him completely frozen out of the Merseyside giants’ senior team this campaign before he joined Sam Allardyce’s Crystal Palace on the January deadline day.
The Frenchman has so far wowed fans and supporters in south east London and while he has told that he would be proud to don the Liverpool shirt again, he has also revealed that he does not know where his future will be and that his agent will be in negotiations over the summer.
“It’s all about seeing Palace safe, and we’re not there yet,” told Sakho to the Guardian.
“If I wear the Liverpool shirt again I will gladly. I have three more years of contract there. But if I have to stay at Palace, I would do that gladly too. I’m happy, I feel good here. I’m also someone who is ambitious, so I will let my agent deal with that in the summer and we’ll see where we are. If my future proves to be somewhere else… well, so be it. I’ll leave everything on my mother’s prayers.”
Sakho joined Liverpool back in 2013 from French club Paris Saint-Germain for a huge £18million.
He competed in 80 matches for the Reds in total and tried to help solidify a weak back line.
The 28-time capped France international also still has three years remaining on his Liverpool contract and some sections of the fan base may be keen to see him handed a second chance at the club.
