Liverpool have announced that their defender Mamadou Sakho has put pen to a paper on a new long-term contract, which will keep him at the Anfield until 2020.
Following the 25-year-old shows an impressive display in the 1-1 draw with Bordeaux during the Europa League on Thursday night, the Reds have now confirmed that the Frenchman has signed a five-year contract-term, as he looks to make into Brendan Rodgers’ pecking order.
Upon signing his new contract, the centre-back told the club’s official website: “I am very happy to sign a long-term contract with Liverpool because, as I have always said, I am very happy here and my family are happy in Liverpool.
“I will keep working because I am a Liverpool soldier and when Liverpool need me, I try to give my best. I am happy to stay as a Scouser. I work all the time 100%, I try to stay professional and I give my best for this city and this club.
“It is important for me because every day when I wake up, I am very happy to come into the training ground with all the players.”
Sakho joined Liverpool from Paris St Germain in August 2013 for £16m, and his new commitment runs until 2020.
