REVEALED: The real reason Liverpool’s Sakho took banned diet pills

On Friday it was revealed that Liverpool and France centre-half Mamadou Sakho had failed a drug test. The club responded by pulling him from the squad until the issue has been resolved even though he was eligible to play against Newcastle on Saturday.

Rumour has it that Sakho’s failed test is down to taking slimming pills. The exact same reason Kolo Toure was hit with a nine month suspension back in 2011. While playing for City we should point out.

Toure was in his 30s at the time but it seems strange for the 26-year old Sakho to feel the need to shift a few unwanted pounds. So we delved a little deeper and found the real reason he resorted to taking tainted slimming pills. The video reveals all.
