The France international joined Liverpool in a £15million deal from Paris Saint Germain on transfer deadline day.
“I achieved beautiful things at Paris that I am very proud of, so I can leave raising my head high,” Sako told L’Equipe.
“Since the start of my career, my first desire has been to go on improving and reach the objectives I set.
“My career dictated me that choice. I move on without regret. Today I am joining a great club with fantastic fans. I am very proud to have signed at Liverpool.
“Early in the summer I had a talk with my PSG coach and chairman. Some things were said but not necessarily with any result. But there is no problem and I feel not bitterness. It was my choice to leave. No one pushed me to the exit door.
“Contrary to what I could hear, I don’t fear competition. At Liverpool, do you believe there will be no competition in my position?”
“Why did I not leave PSG next January as free agent? I wanted to pay back PSG for what it brought me.” added Sakho.
“Of course it would have meant a big financial jackpot for me, but it was not my choice. I wanted the club to take advantage of it too.”

The start of the 2017-18 Premier League season is just around the corner and is shaping up to be one of the most competitive yet.
As always it is the so called “big clubs” that have splashed the most cash in the transfer window so far this summer. Manchester United or City? Arsenal or Tottenham? Who are the winners and losers of the transfer window so far?
