Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho says he's enjoying the physical style of the Premier League.

Sakho moved to Liverpool in August from PSG.

"French football is different to British football, but I have turned a page and Paris is behind me," he told

"I'm very happy and proud to discover the Premier League and especially playing in the Liverpool shirt. I play with great pride, I'm proud to be here.

"It's a fairly physical style of football; there's a lot of impact and a lot of contact in tackles. I don't mind that. It's something I appreciated before I came here and I'm used to now. I think I can continue to play the way I do, to help bring Liverpool great wins.

"I try to give my qualities for the service of the team, of course. I try to give the best of myself, which I've always tried to do since I started at the beginning of my career. I've always done that."
