CISSE CLOSE TO RESERVE RETURN
Steve Hunter 08 April 2005
Djibril Cisse will play again this season after manager Rafael Benitez said the player has made great progress and could play for the reserves in the next 10 days.
The club's record signing has made remarkable progress and Benitez says he is working very hard and eager to get back. The Liverpool manager also said he won't rush Cisse back and will check with the club doctor Mark Waller and physio Dave Galley as to when he can play a game.

The reserves travel to Sunderland on Thursday, 14th April, followed by a home game against Blackburn at Wrexham on Monday, 18th April. Benitez says the player could figure in one of the mentioned games.

Benitez said: "Cisse said to me he wants to play for the reserves next week. I need to talk with the physio and the doctor but maybe he can play in the reserves next week and then the first team.

"We are surprised but very pleased to see him back because we were thinking maybe he could be back by the end of April, or the end of the season. He is working so hard in training.

"It is good for the future that players are working hard and are wanting to come back. It shows they have a good mentality and it is good for us."

great news but I can't help but feel it's all to soon

This is great news, I can honestly see Cisse tearing up the Premiership next season. He's so fast and powerful and has a great right footed shot, like our very own Adriano only inverted, but he's still black.

What does "but he's still black" mean? :D Do you mean Adriano isnt,or you feel Djibril Cisse should do a MJ ;)

Recalling that bone break(horrible),It still feels like he has alot of rehab left and maybe its too soon to play.Hopefuly is not.Been looking forward seeing him sens the summer.And eagerly watched every Pool game,but he got injured so early in the season :(

With you SM. ;)

It is a little too soon, perhaps a fortnight early. What I feel Rafa should do is that allow Ciise to bag a few reserev & practice games under his belt, and then put him on as a sub in a league match, and IF we do get past Juve, play him in the second leg from the start.

The time should be just enough for him to regain his match fitness and shake of any rustiness caused by the long lay off.

The good things abt this is that, no matter when Ciise comes back, he'll be playing with fire in his belly. Sth we need for us to see through the end of the season.
