Liverpool fans feel club has been vindicated over Crystal Palace star.
There were times last season that Jurgen Klopp’s decision to sell Mamadou Sakho to Crystal Palace looked like a bad move.
That said more about Liverpool’s own paucity of quality defensive options in wake of Sakho’s £26 million departure.
The Reds have since signed Virgil Van Dijk and their backline looks transformed.
Sakho was in action last night for the Eagles and was guilty of giving away a penalty with a needless handball.
This contributed to a 2-1 win for Bournemouth, with Junior Stanislas scoring the late spot kick to seal the win.
It is hard to claim this was an uncharacteristic error from former PSG defender Sakho either.
Palace fans were left irate with Sakho’s error, and Liverpool supporters amused and left praising manager Klopp for seeing the light over the Frenchman before many of the fans did.
Here is a look at how Liverpool supporters responded to Sakho’s latest error…
Klopp was so right getting rid of Sakho. Had his moments as a Red, but thankful we got VVD and Gomez now— one eyed firmino (@choppedqueso) October 1, 2018
You can kinda see why Klopp shipped Sakho out to Crystal Palace. He knew all along.— Aidan STOP HIDING ISL (@ginger_culchie) October 1, 2018
And to think people were fuming when Klopp got rid of Sakho! He’s a liability!— Terry Daly (@TJDaly2707) October 1, 2018

Every time you see Mamadou Sakho play it’s easier and easier to see why Klopp binned him!— Nicola Cornish ⚽️ (@nikicornish) October 1, 2018
