Sakho set for weekend run-out

diafra-sakho-542296Diafra Sakho is set to make his return to match action in a behind closed doors under 23s match against Spurs on Saturday.

Having rejoined the first team squad, but having yet to make an appearance, we understand that Slaven Bilic has given the nod to his involvement in the game.

And it’s hoped as a result that if he shows no ill effects from the run-out he may well feature on the bench in the opening game against Manchester United at Old Trafford on August 13.

Sakho is reported “raring to go” and looking strong but the acid test will come when he gets involved in match action with Bilic hoping that he becomes a serious early option for inclusion in the side.

However, there is no signs of Andy Carroll being fit for action as he continues rehab work under the careful eye on Head of Medics Gary Lewin.

  1. Spuds ? First injury of the season 😎 I would give him a run out v city ? Why the spuds ffs 😟
    Stinks ? IMO for what its worth , can’t see the logic in it , maybe they want to play him at right back 😎 one day later ??? Than city , 🙇

  2. It’s normal for players coming back to have a run out with the u23’s Laz we have been doing that for as long as I can remember.

    • Not a problem with that 32 its just brain dead to me that its a day later from v city ? And its the assassins creed of leave you’re foot in spuds ? Not for me mate . fingers crossed he comes out all right , just can’t see the logic ?

  3. No sign of Andy Carroll 😆😆 More likely to see another eclipse or Haley’s comet before we see that sack of ****e again 😆😆

  4. On another subject can anyone explain the fifa fair play rule, how can PSG buy Neymar at such a price is beyond me.

    • They are being questioned as we speak as to how they are going to finance the deal by the powers that be ? Im just jelouse that we will not do things like that ! Makes gilfi bid look like going down the farthing bundles 😂😂

  5. Spuds U23 is likely to be more challenging, all with points to prove and egos to kick, than two teams playing in a meaningless friendly and scared of getting injured just ahead of the season.

  6. This might be a completely random comment, from this season sponsorship is allowed on the sleeves this season. any idea is this is being taken up by any club?

  7. They’ve got Kleenex on the other sleeve 😉 😂😂😂
