Sakho issues apology for Anfield exit after being dropped for Toffees tie





Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho has apologised on social media for leaving Anfield before the Merseyside derby against Everton.

The 24-year-old France international, who was not selected in the squad for the match, was photographed by a fan leaving the stadium before Saturday lunchtime's clash, which finished all square thanks to Toffees skipper Phil Jagielka's last-gasp screamer cancelling out Steven Gerrard's earlier free-kick.

The former PSG man has taken to social media to apologise for any offence caused.

"I really want to apologise to the club, the supporters and every person who felt offended when I left the stadium this afternoon," he said on his Facebook page.

"I'm aware that it was a bad choice from my part to go isolating to watch the game!"
