Former Liverpool striker Djibril Cisse believes that Kylian Mbappe should make the move to Merseyside to realise his Champions League dreams.
Cisse jokingly referenced Mbappe’s mum’s desire to see her son join the famous Premier League club.
KYLIAN MBAPPE NEEDS TO LISTEN TO HIS MUM
He feels that the French star is tailor-made for the Premier League.
Speaking to Betting Sites, Cisse said: “Mbappe said himself he wants to win titles and big trophies but that he means the Champions League. He’s not going to lie to anyone – he wants to lift that trophy. Mbappe is a player who deserves to play big nights and Champions League football – but, even though PSG will be playing in the competition for many years, I don’t think the current side is strong enough to win it.
“I’d love to see Mbappe at Liverpool. I think Mbappe is made for English football. I know he loves Real Madrid and has been linked with them and I think he wants to go. But to see him at Anfield – he would cause a lot of damage in the Premier League. Mbappe’s mum loves Liverpool – as a good boy you have to listen to your mum!”
LIVERPOOL DESPERATE FOR STRIKE OPTIONS
Cisse feels that Liverpool need alternatives up front given the underwhelming start made by Darwin Nunez.
“He’s a striker and he’s often been playing out of position, so it’s difficult to give his best,” Cisse said.
“He’s a centre forward really, but I know that situation as I was playing right wing for Lazio – you do your best and try and help the team but it’s hard playing out of position.
“And up front I don’t think he’s been good enough this season – it’s a simple thing, if you concede goals and you don’t score enough goals then you don’t win games, and this is exactly what’s happening at the moment with Liverpool.”
