Didier Deschamps concerned for Mamadou Sakho

Speaking on RMC, French national team boss Didier Deschamps had his say on Liverpool central defender Mamadou Sakho’s difficult club situation:

“The last friendly match he did was in early August. To find himself in the squad five weeks after being in full control of his capabilities, it is not possible. The guys know that. But Liverpool will be playing in the Europa League and have weeks where there will be three matches, so he will have more chances to play. Aside from that it is his choice but of course the club needs to let him go too. Apparently, that is not the option that has been chosen because they want him to extend his contract. But obviously Mamadou is suffering from this situation because he is a competitor and it is frustrating for him.”
