Liverpool sold Mamadou Sakho to Crystal Palace last summer.

Some Liverpool fans on Twitter have suggested that their club made a mistake by selling Mamadou Sakho.

The France centre-back left Liverpool to join Crystal Palace in a £26 million deal last summer.

The Reds aren’t exactly flush with outstanding central defensive options to partner Virgil van Dijk, with Dejan Lovren, Ragnar Klavan and Joel Matip battling to play alongside the expensive Dutchman since January.

Sakho impressed in Palace’s 2-1 win at Stoke City on Saturday afternoon, and some Liverpool fans believe that the former Paris Saint-Germain stalwart, who joined the Anfield club in 2013, is still better than many of Jurgen Klopp’s current options.

Here is their reaction to his performance:

Sakho, signed by Brendan Rodgers five years ago, is reported to have worried Klopp over his attitude [The Guardian] and that may well have played a role in the German’s decision to offload him.

But the Liverpool fans have a point. On his day, Sakho was a superior defender than both Lovren and Matip for instance, though few can argue that the Reds – who have a Champions League final with Real Madrid later this month – haven’t improved a lot since his exit.
