MAIN EVENT (24-04-2016)



Liverpool have confirmed Mamadou Sakho will not be considered for selection as Uefa investigate a "possible anti-doping rule violation" by the centre-back.
A sample submitted by the France international after Liverpool’s Europa League tie with Manchester United at Old Trafford on March 17 tested positive for a banned substance.
Reports in France suggest traces of a fat burner triggered the result and a second test of the sample will now take place, with Sakho having until Tuesday to respond to the governing body.
A statemate from Liverpool read: "Yesterday, Friday 22nd April 2016, a formal communication was received from Uefa stating that they are investigating a possible anti-doping rule violation by Mamadou Sakho.
"The player will respond to Uefa on the matter.
"The player is currently not subject to any playing suspension. However, the club, in consultation with the player, has decided that while this process is followed the player will not be available for selection for matches.
We, provide, free, possible winning, accumulations, soccer, picks, football news, across the globe, accumulation picks.  
"There will be no further comment at this time."
Sakho has made 34 appearances in all competitions for the Reds this season, memorably scoring the equaliser against Borussia Dortmund as Liverpool won 4-3 at Anfield in the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final.
The 26-year-old could face a lengthy suspension if a second test of the sample also comes up positive. Fellow defender Kolo Toure was suspended for six months by the Football Association in 2011 after taking diet pills while at Manchester City.
There will be no ramifications for Liverpool in the Europa League, however, as the charge is player specific.
