Report: Cisse wants Liverpool return

A British newspaper report stirred up things again at Panathinaikos as it expressed Djibril Cisse’s desire to return to Liverpool.

A short piece in the Daily Star Sunday edition on January 2 suggested that the French striker, who is once again the top scorer at the Super League with 13 goals at the halfway point of the championship, would love to return to Anfield, saying he did not have his chance the first time he got to wear the Liverpool jersey.

“At Liverpool I didn’t have my chance, at Sunderland I had a good time but I fancy coming back to Liverpool,» the report suggests.

Cisse, 29, recently stated he wanted to see his contract with Panathinaikos out. It ties him to the Greek champions until the summer of 2013.
