The revolving door at Anfield

French international striker Djibril Cisse has threatened to leave Liverpool during the January transfer window due to lack of playing time.

"If my situation remains the same by December I'll make my move and I'll go" -Cisse

Liverpool coach Rafael Benitez has of yet been unimpressed with Cisse’s performance since becoming coach last year. Inherited from former coach Gerard Houllier, Cisse has been rumored to be trade bait for Real Betis winger Joaquin, a rumor that has been denied.

Marseille have gone on record and confirmed interest in signing Cisse on a loan deal during the January transfer window.

When he has been featured Cisse has been played out of position and has even lost out on the wing to Florent Sinama-Pongolle. Neither player is a winger, nor is Cisse much of a crosser of the ball.

Didn’t Liverpool make the same mistake with El-Hadji Diouf under Houllier? Now another coach is making the same mistakes? Benitez is not using his assets not giving the players a fair shake. For a club that has only scored 4 goals this season (conceding 6), why not give the guy a run. If Cisse fails, it’s because of him. Otherwise, add another expensive signing to the revolving door.

The point is well made about a revolving door, although under Benitez the door has revolved less than ever before.
Cisse has not proved his worth and I think that although he is a highly talented player, he is too lazy to cut the grade in the premiership.
I hope that he does go, as I am sick of the chances that he misses game after game. Unlike Crouch, who at least gives the ball off and works his backside off, Cisse just wants to be the superstar and run when it suits him.
I think Liverpool can do a lot better without him, although I still think he will make the grade somewhere else, but in another country whose style will suit him much better.
