Rodgers Makes Everyone Feel Part Of Things Says Sakho

Mamadou Sakho returned to the Liverpool side against West Ham last week after an injury lay-off, and apart from being happy to back, praised his manager Brendan Rodgers for how he manages his players.

Sakho and fellow centre back Martin Skrtel received a lot of praise for their defensive work against the London club, and will have to be at their best when they meet Manchester City in a top-of-the-table clash.

Sakho said he was just happy to be fit again and back in contention for selection for the rest of the season. 

"I was very happy at West Ham as I'd worked very hard to get back to full fitness. So that's been achieved now," Sakho said to Liverpoolfc.com.

"I was simply just making myself available for the team, because the most important thing here is the group, so you need to be ready to give of your absolute best when you are called upon.

"It's normal when you are a competitor like me - you always want to be involved and be out there on the pitch trying to help out your team. But (the matches I missed) were games which Liverpool came through extremely well, which was great, and I'm even happier when we win and grab all three points."

The Frenchman also praised Rodgers' man-management during his time out and how Rodgers manages to keep all  squad members involved.

"It's a very important part of his work as there are some players who play less frequently than others and he manages to keep everyone feeling part of things and involved," said Sakho.

"And by that I mean the entire squad, and so that's why when a player comes in to replace someone, he always stands up, because everyone of us is involved in achieving our common goal, an aim that we all share together."
