New Hoops striker Djibril has point to prove
DJIBRIL CISSE warned the Premier League he has unfinished business in England after signing for QPR.
The 30-year-old former Liverpool striker secured his £4million deal from Lazio yesterday – two-and-a-half years after leaving England.
The Frenchman, who has signed a contract until 2014, said: “I have some unfinished business here in England.
“The English league is the best in the world. It is the league that suits me the most. I’m really happy to be here and I can’t wait to repay the club’s confidence in me, to get back to where I want to be as a player.
“I will always give 100 per cent and I can’t wait to start playing games.”
Cisse claims Hoops boss Mark Hughes wanted to sign him while in charge at Manchester City.
“He wanted to sign me at City and now I am finally here with him at QPR,” Cisse added.
“He wants to achieve big things here – that was all I needed to hear from him.”
Sparky is hoping his new signing can solve his scoring problems and drag QPR away from relegation danger.
Cisse can play tonight against Aston Villa if he gets international clearance.
“I have watched him for many years and always been impressed by what he brings to the table,” said Hughes.
“He is a huge threat to opposition’s defences.
He’s got great pace, power and movement – something we will hopefully benefit from.”
