Following his man-of-the-match performance against Manchester United,supra s1w uk it will be harsh on Martin Skrtel to find himself instantly dropped to make way for Sakho. However, having paid £15 million to secure the French international from Paris St-Germain, it is inconceivable that Brendan Rodgers will not find a place in his starting line-up at the earliest opportunity.
Sakho has the physical presence Liverpool often craved during Rodgers' first season. The prospect of the club's defence being bullied as it was too often a year ago has now surely receded, not only with the addition of Sakho but also Kolo Touré's recruitment.
There is a suggestion either Touré or Sakho could be used at full-back, particularly given the untimely injury to Glen Johnson, or Rodgers may even play three centre-backs to accommodate his sudden variety of centre-halves.
Most likely, however, Sakho will be placed firmly where he was during his most successful period at PSG, offering the brute force and intimidation at the heart of the back four alongside the more elegant Daniel Agger.supra vaider uk It will be nigh on impossible for Rodgers to keep every defender happy during the course of this season, but longer term – with Liverpool determined to return to Europe – the assembling of high quality centre-backs is a luxury no one at Anfield will be complaining about.
