Mamadou Sakho has praised Steven Gerrard for helping him settle at Anfield.
Sakho is hugely impressed with the Liverpool and England skipper, even calling him Mr Gerrard, and says he has "a foot like clockwork".
Speaking while on international duty with France, the defender, who joined Liverpool last month from Paris Saint-Germain, said: "The player that always impresses at Liverpool is Mr Gerrard.
"He's a respectful man, calm, serene, with a foot like clockwork. He puts the ball exactly where he wants.
"He's an exceptional person on and off the pitch. He's helped me settle in, just as Kolo Toure has."
Sakho, 23, has started Liverpool's last four league games and says he is very happy at Anfield.
"Liverpool is the Premier League's most successful club, a club with a great history behind it," he said.
"I'm very proud to wear that shirt, especially as I'm very family-oriented, and the club is like me. That suits me perfectly."
