Cisse hits back at Nicollin comments

SoccerNews in Ligue 1 28 Jun 2013


Djibril Cisse has hit out at Montpellier chairman Louis Nicollin and confirmed he will not be joining the club after leaving QPR.

QPR announced on Friday that the striker will be released from his contract a year early on July 1 and will be free to find a new club.

One side linked with the 31-year-old were Montpellier, however Nicollin ruled out a move because he did not want a striker ‘who plays DJ in bars’.

Upon hearing those comments, Cisse has hit back via Twitter and confirmed he will not be moving back to Ligue 1 next season to be a Montpellier player.

“Thanks for the support but I feel bad for fans & players. To have an a****** as president can’t be easy,” he wrote on his official Twitter page. “Shame move will not be made to Montpellier, great team, great city but an idiot president who insults everyone.”

After joining QPR from Lazio in January 2012, Cisse made an immediate impact, scoring six goals in eight appearances to help keep the club in the Premier League on the final day of the season. However, after a less productive spell at the start of last season – scoring four goals in 21 games – he was loaned out to Qatari side Al-Gharafa.

The Frenchman was deemed surplus to requirements at Loftus Road as new manager Harry Redknapp recruited Loic Remy to play the lone striking role for the club.

QPR were subsequently relegated to the Championship despite Remy’s six goals in 14 games, while Cisse scored just once in nine while out on loan.
