Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho has received plenty of support from the club's fans on Twitter after posting on the social networking site after training.

And the Frenchman has been urged to sign a new contract by supporters at Anfield. According to Sky Sports, Sakho has been the subject of bids from Italian side Roma.
