Panathinaikos Chicago Signs Soccer Legend Djibril Cissé

CHICAGO – Panathinaikos Chicago has signed ex-Liverpool star Djibril Cissé, 39, according to a post on the American fourth division team’s Twitter page. 

The French striker previously played for Yverdon Sports in Division 3 of Switzerland.

“Once Green, Always Green,” the April 12 post read and included a photo of Cissé.

Cissé played for Panathinaikos in Greece from 2009-2011 and scored 47 goals in just 61 games during his time with the team.

At Liverpool, Cissé scored 5 goals in 24 first-team games in all competitions for Liverpool in the 2004-05 season. In his career, he also suffered a horrific break of his left leg while playing against the Blackburn Rovers on October 30, 2004, and broke his right leg in 2006 during France's final warm up match against China on June 7, 2006, according to the BBC.
