Sakhominator - Liverpool ace reveals new nickname

Liverpool 's France hero Mamadou Sakho has revealed his new nickname.

Mamadou Sakho is France's hero after scoring a brace in his country's comeback win over Ukraine.

The Liverpool player has attempted to play down his feats, insisting 'I am no hero' but the plaudits keep on coming.

In an interview with French newspaper Le Parisien, he says he has been given a few new nicknames.

"I have not stopped receiving compliments, (it) gratifies me very much.

"Some made ​​me laugh: the Le Graet president called me Zorro, some teammates Sakhominator, but what struck me most pleasure was the comparisons to Thuram.

"He is more of a role model for me, let's say an example. He wrote the history Les Bleus, I only a small page."

With humility like that Sakho will go far, and he's right, this is just the beginning. But if Liverpool fans have it their way - the 'Sakhominator' will one day go onto become as good as if not even better than his idol.
