Mamadou Sakho’s new contract is a question mark on Liverpool leadership

Premier League outfit Liverpool are taking all sorts of decisions that do not make any sense. Brandan Rodgers’ newest decision of extending Mamadou Sakho’s contract is one of them.

The centre-midfielder has been offered another contract over the already running one that ends in 2017 with an increase of £25,000-a-week wage and the player has not even made the starting XI in the first two games for the club this season.

Not only that, but the Frenchman has not shown any signs of being a regular feature at the club in the last two years. He only started 16 games in the last season and 18 in the one before that. Hardly something that would show him to be a promising player at Anfield.

It has been Liverpool’s trend of taking decisions that are illogical at best. Martin Skrtel and Jordan Henderson were offered contract that were worth much less than they were offered previously even though they have been the most consistent players for the Reds through thick and thin.
