Mamadou Sakho apologises for leaving Anfield before Everton clash

The Frenchman left Anfield apparently angry at not being selected for the 1-1 draw.

Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho has apologised 'to the club, the supporters and every person who felt offended' for leaving Anfield early during his side's 1-1 draw with Everton.

The Frenchman was left out of the matchday squad of 18 and was spotted leaving the stadium before the game took place.

Pictures of Sakho were unconfirmed but it now appears that it was indeed the centre-back spotted in the stadium car park, potentially as he was angry at being left out of Brendan Rodgers' squad.

However, in confirming that he did leave the game early, the 24-year-old has also apologised for his behaviour, suggesting that it was 'a bad choice' on his part.

Questions may now be asked of the Frenchman's long-term future at Anfield, with his actions potentially jeopardising his future chances of featuring for Rodgers' side.

A similar situation presented itself with Daniel Agger, who left Liverpool this summer, reportedly not on the best of terms with his former manager.

Sakho moved to Merseyside for a fee believed to be around £18 million but has not exactly impressed for the Reds.

Many do hold the 24-year-old in high regard at Liverpool but his hesitation on the ball and poor form this season have seen him drop behind Martin Skrtel and Dejan Lovren in the pecking order.

The defender will hope his apology draws a line under the matter.
