Djibril Cisse Eyes Liverpool Return

Lord of the Manor of Frodsham (seriously) Djibril Cisse has spoken of his desire to rejoin former club Liverpool this summer, after seeing an opportunity open up for him to finally make his mark at Anfield.

The 28-year-old French international, who spent two seasons with the Reds before joining Olympique de Marseille in 2006, has rediscovered his goalscoring form during his time with Greek giants Panathinaikos and believes that he could be the man to bolster Liverpool’s paper-thin forward line.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Cisse said;

“At Liverpool I didn’t have my chance [under Rafa Benitez], at Sunderland I had a good time but I fancy coming back to Liverpool – that would be nice.

I like Arsenal, because my friends are there, Manchester is nice, but my club is Liverpool – from my club point of view, England is one of the best if not the best.”

When asked about his hiatus from English football, Cisse replied;

“I was missing enjoying football, and a lot of things – I needed to go away for a bit.”

Now, Cisse’s a fairly poor footballer technically speaking, but like so many of his contemporaries, he is quick enough to get away with it most of the time.

His touch isn’t particularly good and his finishing can be woeful at times, but he will (somehow) chip in with his fair share of goals – thanks largely to his searing pace – and goals are a pretty important commodity football-wise.

Considering Liverpool’s obvious current dearth of viable attacking options, would a cut-price deal for their former striker (who really didn’t get a fair run under Rafa Benitez) be worth a gamble?

    Well, not a bad punt. He is much better than Ngog for sure.

    Oh please to god tell me that Woy will not consider this. He is terrible and the last thing we need at Liverpool is someone of his attitude at the club again.

    He was poor at Sunderland too/

    Although it could ring true that he would come back given the chance, his wife still lives and has a business over in Fordsham.

    Bring Emile Heskey back before Cisse :D
