Liverpool fans fill Twitter with anger, banter and conspiracy theories as Sakho is freed from UEFA ban

Liverpool fans have been rejoicing this afternoon after it was reported by L’Equipe that Mamadou Sakho is free to play again.

The French newspaper claim that UEFA will not extend Sakho’s 30-day suspension, which has been imposed after he allegedly took a little pill to help him burn some fat.

Apparently, lawyers have successful argued that what Sakho took was not on the banned list in the first place, so the 26-year-old will be officially let off the hook in the coming days.

Liverpool supporters are understandably delighted at the prospect at their star centre-back being available for the start of next season, especially considering a two-year ban had been rumoured to be on the cards.

However, Kopites are equally furious with UEFA for charging a seemingly-innocent Sakho, who consequently missed eight games, including the Europa League final, which the Reds lost to Sevilla.

Many angry Reds took to Twitter to vent.

However, some managed to see the funny side, while one or two were even philosophical on the matter.

Of course there was a few conspiracy theorists, as well…
