FORMER Liverpool striker Djibril Cisse never did cut the figure of a shy or retiring wallflower during his playing days on Merseyside.
The former France international – formerly known as the Lord of the Manor of Frodsham after acquiring the title in the purchase of his country manor house in 2005 – was rated just as highly for his colourful barnets as for his goals.
And retirement, it seems, hasn’t slaked a thirst for the controversial when it comes to cutting-edge style, as evidenced by his latest offering that defies rhyme, reason and – frankly – taste.
The Frenchman netted just 24 goals in two seasons at Liverpool before being offloaded to Olympique Marseilles, a move which launched a journeyman period in his career that took him via Italy, Greece, Russia, Qatar… and Sunderland.
And that whistle-stop tour of exotic outposts clearly lit the touchpaper for a magnesium flash of inspiration, as evidenced by some of ‘inventive’ designs he has had etched into his scalp through the years.
Cisse last played for Italian lower-league side Vicenza 1902 after signing a short-term deal in August 2018, but the club were shortly after denied entry to Serie D and were reported to have been unable to pay their players.

They’ve started this season with two wins from two.
