Mamadou Sakho was all smiles with Christian Benteke as the Liverpool defender and his family chilled with some of his team-mates on Tuesday night.

The Liverpool centre-half suffered a knee injury last month after he landed awkwardly during the Merseyside outfit’s 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace at Anfield.

The French defender has since missed Liverpool’s back-to-back Premier League victories over Manchester City and Swansea City due to the problem.

However, Sakho was in high spirits as he brought his wife and daughter along to an event with some members of the Liverpool squad, including Benteke.

Sakho had established himself as a first-choice player under new Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, but Dejan Lovren has since filled the void left by the former Paris Saint-Germain defender.

The France defender has made seven Premier League appearances this season.

Sakho moved to the five-time European champions in a £16m deal from PSG in the summer of 2013.
