Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho is full of praise for the leadership of captain Steven Gerrard.

Sakho is hugely impressed with the Liverpool and England skipper, even calling him Mr Gerrard, and says he has "a foot like clockwork".

Speaking while on international duty with France, the defender, who joined Liverpool last month from Paris Saint-Germain, said: "The player that always impresses at Liverpool is Mr Gerrard.

"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."
