Liverpool FC have confirmed that Mamadou Sakho has failed a drugs test and has been suspended by the club.

The test took place at Old Trafford following our 1-1 draw in the Europa League which saw us knocked out.

Sakho played for 90 minutes in both games against United and also scored a crucial goal in the next round to beat Borussia Dortmund.

Just as Liverpool FC has done in the past, with their chairman John Smith blaming Chelsea supporters for the 39 deaths Liverpool fans caused at Heysel, or blaming Patrice Evra for being the target of Luis Suarez’s racist abuse, their fans are now looking for someone to blame for Sakho being a drugs cheat.

Who is at fault here? Isn’t it obvious?! David Gill, of course. Our former chief exec and current board member and, more importantly, he sits on the UEFA Executive Committee.

It’s never their fault.
