The Sakho Banner That's Heading To The Europa League Final Came At A Slight Cost

The Sakho Banner That's Heading To The Europa League Final Came At A Slight Cost
By PJ Browne Updated

On Wednesday, for the first time since 2007, Liverpool are in a European final.

Sevilla will be their opponents in the Europa League final in Basel.

Nine years ago, it was the Champions League final against AC Milan. It's actually 15 years since they were in the final two of European football's second tier trophy. On that night, they defeated Alaves 5-4 (a game we remembered here).

Against Sevilla Jurgen Klopp will be without the services of usual centre-back Mamadou Sakho after the French international last month tested positive for a fat-burning drug and was subsequently banned by UEFA.

A return to a the final of a European final after almost a decade away has given Liverpool fans reason to get creative with their banners.

One, created by Anthony Grice, will feature reference to Sakho's ban.

The flag is an homage to one of the most famous in the club's history from the 1977 European Cup Final victory against Borussia Mönchengladbach

It was a tribute to left-back Joey Jones.

Anthony Grice's patio is also now a tribute to Mamadou Sakho's misdeeds.
