Liverpool legend Carragher wonders if Sakho deal will work

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher wonders how former PSG defender Mamadou Sakho will fit in Brendan Rodgers' system.

Carragher wrote in the Daily Mail: "He arrives on Merseyside with a solid reputation and it was interesting to hear that Ian Ayre, Liverpool’s managing director, described him as ‘a marquee signing’ — when you spend £18million on someone, you would expect they will play.

"So it will be fascinating to see how Brendan fits Sakho in. He is a left-sided central defender but Liverpool already have a very good one of those in Daniel Agger, who has succeeded me as vice-captain.

"In my experience, you can play two right-footed central defenders as a partnership — that was the case when Sami Hyypia and I played alongside each other — but I have never seen a team line up with two left-footed central defenders as a partnership."
