The former French international has relied on the important moments of his career.
Djibril Cissé acknowledged that he could have joined FC Barcelona and Real Madrid in the early 2000s. "Real Madrid and Barça were on me," he said in an interview with L & # 39; Equipe. . "In Barcelona I met Rijkaard, the coach of the day, and instead they took Samuel Eto's, and in 2002 Real was hot, and one day, on the French team, Zizou came to see me in my room to say to me the Real wanted me, but I gave my word to Liverpool. And for me, a word is more important than a contract. Refuse Zizou's offer, it still hurts my heart, "Cissé concluded.
Cissé will still win the Champions League with the Reds after an anthology final against AC Milan in Istanbul (3-3, 3-2 for penalties).
