Mamadou Sakho is drawing inspiration from Floyd Mayweather ahead of Liverpool’s Europa League clash on Thursday.

The France defender played his part in Liverpool’s 6-0 win against Aston Villa at Villa Park in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Sakho has enjoyed a sustained run in Jurgen Klopp’s first-team thanks to injuries to centre-halves Dejan Lovren and Martin Skrtel.

And the Frenchman posted a photo of signed Mayweather photo from the Moneymaker himself on his Snapchat.

Sakho wrote: “AMSAK from the king Mayweather”

The 26-year-old has started 17 Premier League appearances for the 18-time English champions so far this season.

Augsburg take on Liverpool in their most prestigious Europa League game to date on Thursday, with Jürgen Klopp returning to his native Germany for an 11th encounter with the Fuggerstädter.

The sides are meeting for the first time and this is Augsburg’s maiden date with English opponents.
