Mamadou Sakho’s career history until 2017

As you can see, Sakho has been a mainstay in the PSG squad for many years, he is the clubs youngest captain, being made captain at the age of 19, in this game he has also been made France captain following the World Cup in 2014, at the age of 24 . He is an imposing figure at the back, with great physical attributes and aerial ability, this means that he is equally adept at forcing a gap and heading in corners as he is at heading them away. I think the screenshots above pay testament to this, as he has played such a high amount of games in a succesful PSG side.

Sakho has always been considered a wonderkid since FM2010, the problem is that now PSG have money, they don’t need to sell him and have become like Man City, asking for ridiculous amounts. Hence the high price tag.

Best Buy Rating: 7.5/10

    The future best defender of the world! He is a rock! I always buy him! With 5 star coaches in every training he should develop a lot more. I used to make Ledley King his mentor.

    just a 7/10???
    How come you give Hazard and Gotze a 10/10,they also cost a ridiculous amount?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 28, 2012

      This profile was done by someone else, not the same person who did the Hazard and Gotze profile, so there is a good chance both people had differing opinions in how a player should be rated…basically what I am saying is that the rating is incorrect in comparison to others on the site. I’ll correct it now, thanks for the heads up.

    Hi, possible to do a profile on Kyle Bartley, at 21 he almost has 15 in all the stats needed t0 be an effective CB (defend) and looks as though in 2-3 years he will be a real gem.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 5, 2012

      Yeah he does look promising but I need to get a better future profile than what I have to profile him.

    Hi Darren. Tyrna figure out which players to buy in my second season as Arsenal. Im building from the back and my current back five starters and second string are as follows. GK: 1.ter Stegen 2. Szczesny 3. Ghilherme LB: 1. Robinson 2. Gibbs (soon to be Alex Sandro once he recovers from a long term injury) RB: 1. Corchia 2. Vrsaljko CBL: 1. Vermaelen 2. Sakho CRB: 1. Shawcross 2. Bartley (Prestia has been bought but not yet ready). I was thinking of selling Vermalen and bringing in a younger left footed CB at the moment the two players I am looking at are Badstuber and Alvaro Dominguez which of the two would you suggest? Also do you think there is any way i could improve what i have currently?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 5, 2012

      You could really improve that back line I don’t think and Dominguez would suit Arsenal nicely so I’d personally pick him.

      • comment avatar Arsenal Goon February 5, 2012

        Yeah i was kinda leaning towards Dominguez more. Also im looking for a left footed left winger who is as devastating as Ayew is on my RW any suggestions? I was looking at that Yarmelenko guy buy wasnt so sure.

        • comment avatar Darren Smith February 5, 2012

          I really like Yarmelenko, would be my choice anyway.
