Cape Town - Known for having some of the best fans in the world and the 12th man of Liverpool Football Club, nothing beats the atmosphere and belief that Reds supporters can bring to a game.

Mamadou Sakho has lauded the Reds faithful and believes they still have a role to play as the season comes to a head.

Sakho told the Daily Star that the support is fantastic. "For me, Liverpool is a country because the supporters are fantastic", he said.

"This is the Liverpool family. The supporters are very, very important for the team and the club.

"When people tell me Liverpool are a good team, I say it's not just the players and the staff - it is the players, staff and the city.

"The supporters have been fantastic all season but so have the players, it's been a joint effort, so we can thank them and they can thank us."

The Kop need to win their last two games of the season and hope Manchester City slip up if they are to win the league.
