Djibril Cisse'© has made an ideal start to his career at Sunderland, but why does he need a third leg?

Djibril Cisse football bootsDjibril Ciss'© joined Sunderland on loan from Marseilles, having suffered two broken legs and being let go by Liverpool, Ciss'© has a point to prove. He started to prove that point in his first appearance for Sunderland, coming off the bench to get a late winner against Tottenham.

Back to that third leg. You’d think having broken his leg twice the thought of having to put up with another one might be a bit much, but no, Ciss'© is talking of growing a third limb.

However, the French international is not after a limb to replace one of the previously damaged ones. He wants another one to honour Prince Kobe, his two-month-old baby. Ciss'© true to form, has inscribed the names of his two older children, Ilona Celeste and Cassius Clay, on his football boots, but is lacking space for the Prince.

Djibril Ciss'©:

Djibril Ciss'© I have another child, so I will have to get another leg. I have a big point to prove after the way I finished at Liverpool. It was always my plan to come back to England. I had a few offers but I chose Sunderland because of the manager and I think the club have big ambitions and a really good infrastructure, good players.

This win shows what we are capable of. We can surprise a lot of teams. I’m made for England, it suits the way I play. I still have my house here, my wife is English. El-Hadji Diouf told me they have good ambitions. I think we will be quite lively together. I never played against Keane luckily. He was a big factor in my decision to come here.
