Lazio forward Djibril Cisse has revealed that he would like to play in the MLS after leaving European football.
The French striker left Panathinaikos to join the Biancocelesti in the summer, but he hasn’t had a great start to his career at Olimpico.
The 30-year-old scored just one goal in 16 Serie A games this season, and he was linked with a January exit from Lazio.
His former club Auxerre was mentioned as a possible destination, but Cisse didn’t like the fact that Auxerre fans were urged to make donations in order to fund the player’s return to Stade de l’Abbe Deschamps.
“I did not like that,” Cisse told Telefoot. “I would rather make sacrifices that do not tale money from Auxerre fans.”
The player reveals that he accepted a move to Lazio so as to keep his chances of making France Euro 2012 squad alive.
“I left Pana, the club I love, and I earn less at Lazio. But, that allowed me to dream of Euro with les Bleus.
”I believe in it. It would be my final challenge before I leave my place to younger players.”
Cisse then added that he intended to finish his career in the MLS.
“Playing in the United States, that’s in my plans for the future. It’s a country I love.”
