Sakho explains decision to celebrate Benteke’s goal against Liverpool

Date Posted,April 23, 2017

Liverpool loanee Mamadou Sakho has defended his decision to celebrate Christian Benteke’s goal against the Reds on Sunday, report the Liverpool Echo.

The French defender received criticism for exchanging an elaborate handshake with the former Liverpool striker, both following the equaliser and after the game.

Sakho is on loan with the Eagles but was ineligible to play against his parent club, although his absence still didn’t stop his current side beating the Reds 2-1 at Anfield.

The 27-year-old spent the first half of the season with the Under-23s after a lack of discipline on the club’s pre-season tour of the United States.

Some observers took his gesture with Benteke as a message to Jurgen Klopp, whom banished him from the first-team squad.
