Anorak | Forgetting when Liverpool’s Djibril Cissé broke his leg

Forgetting when Liverpool’s Djibril Cissé broke his leg

IN the Daily Mail. Michael Walker has football facts about ambulatory comic strip:

Sunday’s other Premier League game is QPR-Liverpool. It is over eight years since Djibril Cisse cost £14m when he moved to Anfield.  His transfer was not considered a success, particularly when he went from September 25th to May 15th in his first season without scoring.

Cissé is being routinely poor for QPR. But Walker is harsh.

On 30 October 2004 Cissé broke his tibia and fibula. He returned on 13 April 2005 and scored a penalty in the Champions’ League final. Cissé might not have made the Kop swoon, but omitting such a sickening injury is churlish…
