“You know how it is with goalscorers, We love goals, we love hitting milestones; 25, 50, 75… for me, it’s the landmark of 100 that haunts me, I’ve been stuck on 96 since I stopped.I am missing four goals and it gets to me, it drives me crazy! I want to come back to Ligue 1 to get them. If a club takes me, I can get them in two or three months.”
Cisse left Ligue 1 at the end of the 2014-15 season following a brief stop with Bastia, which brought six league goals in 27 appearances.
While he also added 24 to his tally during a productive spell at between 2006 and 2008, the majority of Cisse’s Ligue 1 goals came at his first club, Auxerre.
He secured an impressive 70 league goals in 128 league appearances for Auxerre, earning himself a move to Liverpool. Cisse also scored nine goals in 41 games for France, and was a member of their 2003 Confederations Cup winning squad.
