Djibril Cisse retires from football
Former Liverpool striker and France international Djibril Cisse has retired from football.
34-year old Cisse, who last played professional football for Saint-Pierroise in the Reunion Islands, is quitting the game due to injury.
“You have to listen to your body – it is finished, yes. I can no longer play football at a high level. You have to know when to turn the page,” Cisse said.
Cisse, who won the UEFA Champions League with The Reds in 2005, had suffered horrific injuries in his career, which slowed down his progress.
An example of such injuries was after a freak accident during Liverpool’s league match against Blackburn, which saw him break both the tibia and fibula in his leg.
Cisse managed to have a very good career regardless, scoring 257 goals for club and country.
The best times of his career were at Anfield, where he won the Champions League, FA Cup and the UEFA Super Cup.
