Mamadou Sakho’s future at Liverpool has been hit doubt after he was sent home early from their pre-season tour.
Sakho was included in the squad that travelled to Palo Alto in California last Thursday.
Concerns, though, have been raised about the attitude Sakho has displayed around camp and that led to a decision being taken to send the 26-year-old back to Merseyside.
However, Liverpool offered no comment about the reasons for Sakho’s abrupt departure.
The France international has also not played in any of Liverpool’s friendlies because he is nursing an achilles problem that will prevent him starting the new Premier League campaign
