Mamadou Sakho claims his move to Liverpool was the right decision as he continues to impress after agreeing a move from childhood-club Paris Saint Germain.

Sakho signed a deal to head to Merseyside in the summer as he was failing to get regular game time with PSG after their heavy investment under Carlo Ancelotti. With a great deal of competition for defensive positions at Liverpool he has made eight appearances for Brendan Rodgers' side this season and has excelled with his powerful performances.

And on the back of getting into the France team for their all-important World Cup qualifying match with Ukraine - and scoring two of the three goals to set up their amazing comeback to get a ticket to Brazil - Sakho claims that his choice to move to Liverpool was definitely the right one.

"I wouldn't have changed my choice for anything in the world," Sakho told The Guardian. "My decision to come to Liverpool has been fantastic for me. I haven't been here very long at all but I've settled in well.

"It was always going to be hard because I've only ever known one club and been a one-club person before coming here, so that makes things a bit more difficult.

"But I've been prepared to go and ask advice from everyone - my teammates, coaches and the manager. I've asked them a lot about the game here. My family has settled in, it's going well."

Sakho is hoping that his international form will be a spark to get even more game time with Liverpool and the 23-year-old said that the side have been congratulating him on his efforts, which helped France become the first side in World Cup qualifying history to overturn a 2-0 deficit and reach the tournament.

He explained: "It's funny, I had this feeling I was going to score. I was absolutely certain. It wasn't a case of me being conceited, I was just so determined for it to happen.

"Everyone has been congratulating me since. Here in Liverpool they have all been patting me on the back, although Brad Jones insisted I had only been credited with the first goal in England.

"I told him it was definitely two goals back in France, and now that is official!"
