Cape Town - Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho feels he could be the man to help ease the Reds’ defensive woes if he is given the chance on his return to fitness.The Merseysiders defence has been well below average, with a concerning amount of defensive errors leading to opposition goals.Manager Brendan Rodgers has been vocal about the team's need for a leader in the heart of defence, and according to Football411, Sakho believes he is the man for the job."For me it (leadership) comes naturally. There are different kinds of leaders: technical leaders, dressing room leaders, psychological leaders," he told the Liverpool Echo."I am a very ambitious person, I have set personal objectives, the team has set some too and they are quite similar."(Joining Liverpool) is the next step in my career, a new experience which allows me to grow. I am still in my learning phase."Little by little I’ll start to open up even more because when you don’t speak a language well enough, it’s difficult to show your character; it’s difficult to communicate."But it will come, little by little. I’ve improved my English. I understand a lot better, especially the local Scouse accent. I’m still working."
