25-year-old center back Mamadou Sakho was expected to be a dominant defensive force for Liverpool following his move from PSG in 2013, and while he's been excellent whenever he plays, injuries have hindered his time at the club so far. However, he is still committed to his Liverpool future and is confident that he can further prove himself next season.

"Yes, I had many physical problems this season, but I'm fit, I have my spot, and I produced good performances despite everything," Sakho said (Daily Mirror). "I still have to prove many things [for Liverpool]."

Sakho insists that he has no interest in a move away from Anfield.

"I like Liverpool, next season I'll still be a Red," he said. "I like the club, it's a young and skilled team. I hope to achieve great things with this club."

As long as he can put his injury luck behind him, Sakho represents the most important building block for Liverpool's defense -- when fully fit he's a world class talent. It's good to hear that he's still committed to Liverpool, but to keep him satisfied the club must work to solidify the defensive pieces around him.
