Watch: Mamadou Sakho’s daughter helps Liverpool star recover from injury

Mamadou Sakho's daughter could have a future as a physio judging by Liverpool star's latest Instagram post

Mamadou Sakho has been a noticeable absentee for Liverpool in recent weeks.

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

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.

But the Croatia international could soon have competition for his centre-half place after Sakho revealed that his knee injury isn’t as serious as first feared last month.

And the French defender uploaded a video of an impromptu physiotherapist session with his young daughter on Monday evening.

Sakho wrote on his Instagram page: “My best physio is at home !!! 👍”

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

Sakho has been a mainstay of the Liverpool defence since Klopp took over the reins from Brendan Rodgers.
