Mamadou Sakho has taken to Twitter to apologise to Liverpool fans for leaving Anfield before Saturday’s clash against Everton.

Brendan Rodgers opted to leave the France international out of his side for the Merseyside derby and the defender was soon pictured leaving Anfield before kick-off.

Sakho has since offered a full apology for not staying at the ground to watch the game.

The defender wrote: “I really want to apologise to the club, the supporters and every person who felt offended when I left the stadium this afternoon.

“I’m aware that it was a bad choice from my part to go isolating to watch the game!”

Phil Jagielka’s stunning goal earned Everton a 1-1 draw after Steven Gerrard’s free-kick.
