Mamadou Sakho has hinted that he would be open to one day returning to Paris Saint-Germain after the Liverpool summer signing returned to his old club for their top of the table clash with Monaco.
Sakho made the move to Merseyside on deadline day and didn't have time to say goodbye to the club he spent much of his career with. The centre-back came through PSG's youth system and made his first team debut in 2007, spending five years in the side before finding himself on the sidelines after their big spending began.
At Liverpool the 23 year old will have a chance to prove that he can indeed be one of Europe's top defenders, particularly if the club can fulfil their ambition this season of a top four finish and a return to the Champions League.
But he has hinted that he could one day return to his former club in an emotional speech to fans, saying his story with the club isn't yet finished.
"I am very proud to come back here", Sakho said. "I remember when I was young and I was up there in the stands. I walked onto the pitch with pride.
"I have now turned a page. This is my town, I am at home. I wish the best for the club and its exceptional supporters. My story with PSG isn't over yet."
Sakho will have a challenge on his hands to become a regular in the Liverpool side with Daniel Agger, Kolo Toure and Martin Skrtel all fighting for a regular place in the centre of defence, while fellow new signing Tiago Ilori will also be keen to prove his worth.
However, he will hope to impress when handed opportunities and will be keen for the side to push on after a positive start to the season which has slight halted after the draw away to Swansea and a home loss to Southampton.
