The 24-year-old defender enjoyed an outstanding World Cup campaign despite France's exit in the quarter-finals following defeat to Germany.
Sakho told Liverpool Echo: "Addressing my teammates in the dressing is quite a spontaneous, natural thing for me.
"I've got a strong personality which helps me to get my message across. I often try to do it with humour; it's the best way to make it stick.
"I've always had a big brother-style relationship with youngsters. When I was young, I appreciated it when older guys gave me advice.
"You always learn things from your elders. And now I do it too, sometimes - there are players that really respond to that kind of thing."
