He has not played in official competitions since a move to Swiss D3 in 2017-2018

Real desire to return to the club that launched him as a professional or simply want to have fun with the few rumors that announce him on the return? Difficult to read between the lines, especially since his physical condition is an enigma. At almost 41 years old, Cissé has not played in official competition since his move to Yverdon Sport, in Swiss D3, during the 2017-2018 season (24 goals in 29 games).

The former OM and Liverpool player has already made a comeback in Ligue 1. In 2014, he signed for SC Bastia, particularly with a view to beating the 100 mark. top flight goals. In eight games played in the league, he had unfortunately not found the net (despite three goals in the Coupe de la Ligue and one goal in the Coupe de France) and his counter is still stuck at 96 goals in Ligue 1. Will he again have the opportunity to inflate this total on the side of Abbé-Deschamps?
