Sakho is hugely impressed with the Liverpool and England skipper, even calling him Mr Gerrard, and says he has "a foot like clockwork".
"He's a respectful man, calm, serene, with a foot like clockwork. He puts the ball exactly where he wants.
"He's an exceptional person on and off the pitch. He's helped me settle in, just as Kolo Toure has."
