So it turns out sakho didn't take performance enhancing drugs like he was accused of and banned for in 2016. Just before the sevilla final. I wonder if we may be due some compensation from WADA? Eds?

{Ed025's Note - i wouldn,t think so scarface, to be honest if he was taking performance enhancing drugs mate...they never worked.. :)

Lol ed025.

He might of been the difference in us winning that I was fuming when I heard he’d been banned for doping!
Was the end of his career with us more of less! Disgraceful from wada tho absolute clowns!

04 Nov 2020 18:38:19
My question is, would he have stayed with us if that incident never occurred? I'm sure there were other things that led to him being let go. Off the top of my head I remember him being sent home for being late during a pre-season tour. Was a fan of his though, loved his awkward style of play.

04 Nov 2020 18:57:08
I think from memory it was his antics during pre season that signed his exit. Was he late a few times and Klopp got pissed at him?

04 Nov 2020 19:08:00
Klopp was pissed with him been late etc but I’d say deep down is was cus he lost his best cb at the time!
No one will ever know.

I could never understand the fuss over Lance Armstrong taking drugs. When I rode a bike after doing some shrooms and bit of weed all I did was fall off the damn thing. Fair play to him that he could not only win a race, but the Tour de France as well.

04 Nov 2020 21:18:51
He was Kack him. Bambi on ice. I love Klopp he just gets rid of all the garbage 😂 simple and very effective.

04 Nov 2020 21:30:57
Come on 6Times, it was easy win the race when he was so full of drugs he didn't even know he was cycling a bike! He was convinced he could fly!

04 Nov 2020 21:46:56
If he was that good he wouldn't still be at Crystal Palace.

04 Nov 2020 22:17:25
I'll never forget the Dortmund game but Sakho wasnt quite good enough. Remember him interupting klopp during an interview and he wasnt happy. Plus he was an idiot when he played at anfield for palace. Klopp done the right thing.

04 Nov 2020 23:23:09
I thought the case was dismissed in the summer of 2016, so this isn't exactly news? And I doubt it's why Klopp sold him. He came on a pre-season tour with the first team afterwards and was given the no. 3 shirt vacated by Enrique for the season. To me, that suggests that he was in the first team plans until he acted the eejit on said tour?

Whether Sakho would've made a difference in the final or not, who knows? From minute to minute within a game he could play at any level between van Dijk and Traore.

I feel bad for Sakho, incorrectly banned which meant he missed a European final and playing for France in Euro 2016. His career has never really recovered and now he has to play for Crystal Palace.

05 Nov 2020 00:56:31
In the end, in a professional setup (and Klopp's setup is very professional at LFC, ) it's the quality of the footballing ability that decides whether you stay or go, despite the personal failings that many footballers may have. If your name is Messi or Ronaldo, the footballing let's you get away with far more than your average footballer.

Sakho was wrongly accused and suspended. no doubt about it. But I also remember that at that time there was talk of Lovren and Gomez coming into the back 4, and Klopp probably decided that the future potential of those two was greater than what Sakho could produce for us.

04 Nov 2020 23:21:47
Ed025 I was never a fan gave me an heart attack every time he got the ball. Would he have made a difference for the final nobody knows, but it did keep him out of a final something he will probably never get again and if that was me I would be fuming and would be taking legal advice.

{Ed025's Note - i agree with you grino, very poor show by WADA and his reputation was tainted so im sure compensation would and should be due mate..

05 Nov 2020 04:21:13
Ed25, I want you to know. I am your biggest fan!

{Ed025's Note - cheers haizan, your one of a very small number mate.. :)

05 Nov 2020 10:43:54
So you have 2 fan's now Ed025.

{Ed025's Note - i know barry celebrity status at last mate.. :)

05 Nov 2020 21:50:06
I understand WADA has paid Sakho compensation.
