Mamadou Sakho says he served his punishment under Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool and “does not know what else he can do”, as he opened the door on a return to Anfield.
Sakho was loaned out to Crystal Palace in January after falling out of favour with Klopp and the centre-back has impressed in five Premier League games for Sam Allardyce’s men.
Allardyce is keen to sign the 27-year-old permanently, but admitted: “It would be a big negotiation at the end of the season.”
Now Sakho has spoken about his future and admitted he would be “happy” to return to his parent club.
“I still have a contract for three more years. If I were to wear the Liverpool jersey again, I would be happy to do so,” Sakho told Telefoot.
“I was late for training, something that happens everywhere. I paid a fine and I do not know what else I can do.
“It is up to the boss. He makes the decisions and I can only accept that.And we will see what happens if my future is elsewhere.”
“That is nothing we have to decide in this moment. So that is it,” he told SFR Sport.
“He made his first appearance after a really long time [on February 25], and so all we have to do is to be focused on the season and this squad here.
“I will not talk to you about potential transfers we make, so it makes no sense to talk about players we gave on loan. We will see.”
