Sakho Reveals Champions League Desire

Mamadou Sakho has hinted that he could leave Crystal Palace by revealing that he would like to play in the Champions League again.

 

The 28-year-old central defender joined the Eagles in a £26million deal in summer 2017 on the back of successful six-month loan spell when he helped keep the side in the Premier League.

Sakho’s performances for Roy Hodgson’s side have helped push him back into the France national team and he started in Tuesday’s 1-0 friendly win against Uruguay.

 

He was forced off because of a lower back problem, which makes him a doubt for Saturday’s clash at Manchester United, before later confirming his desire to play in European competition again.

 

When asked about his future, Sakho said: “I have always worked to reach the highest levels of club football and selection. My ambition remains the same, I want to be present in the biggest possible competitions. Is the Champions League in my mind? Why not?”
