Liverpool defender Sakho: Physical style suits me

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 Liverpoolfc.com.

"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."
