Former Liverpool striker Djibril Cisse says he is ready to come out of retirement to score his 100th career goal in Ligue 1. The 38-year-old decided to hang up his boots in 2017 after a short-lived spell with lowly Italian club Vicenza. AFP Cisse had two spells with Marseille in Ligue 1 and hopes to play again in his homeland Cisse, who helped Liverpool win a fifth Champions League title in his three-year spell from 2004, featured for Auxerre, Marseille and Bastia in Ligue 1. During his time in France, Cisse netted 96 goals, but he is not content with that tally. He told White and Sawyer on talkSPORT: “I’m a goalscorer and we are a different breed. We are men of numbers. To be on 96 goals, it’s annoying! “I’m not even joking, I have dreams about it, seeing me scoring my 100th goal and celebrating with my people. So it’s a problem. “I’m still fit enough to score four goals and to live my life free and forget about this. AFP Cisse scored 24 goals in 82 appearances for Liverpool “Some people don’t understand. Most of my friends are telling me, ‘it’s okay, 96, it’s good enough, it’s nearly 100’. But it’s nearly, it’s not 100. It’s not the same. “So for me, if I can score four goals and help a team at the same time, because it’s not only a personal thing. “If I sign for a club, it’s not just to score four goals and then say, ‘thank you, bye, bye’. I’ll be there helping the youngsters and be a help for the team. I want to help and I think I can.” Cisse revealed he would be open to rejoining Nimes, his boyhood club who he left for Auxerre in 1996.

I think I can help. It’s where I’m from and it would be a good story.”,
