    What the hell?? These videos only show his attacking skills rather than defensive. How are we supposed to asses his defensive skills by these videos

      I apologize for that, there isn’t many videos of Sakho on the web surprisingly, displaying his skills, as most of his videos are promotional or commercials.

      If you watch him with PSG, you can see that he’s a huge talent, I apologize if the videos didn’t satisfy.

      Cheers and take care,
