Sakho breaks silence over Liverpool freeze: They won't let me play for reserves!

Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho has spoken out over his exile.

The French defender has not played a minute of football for Liverpool this season after failing to take Jurgen Klopp's advice and leave the club on loan during the summer.

The 26-year-old posted on social media: "Now it's 3 weeks since I am fit to play games.

"I finish all my rehabilitation work. They don't want me to play also with second team lol! Why I don't know.

"Still working hard like Scouse Soldier! Still not talking cos I want speak on pitch.. I will speak soon for the people who support me and don't understand the situation.

"Still happy to live in my “Liverpool Country" with my family, hope to have chance to play soon to give my best like I try to do always!

"I accept my situation but I can't accept the lie… The fans deserve to know the truth! Thanks for your support."
