– French striker Djibril Cisse
I think people know my character. I am a winner, very demanding and never satisfied.
I'm 32, I've been around a long time and I don't feel old at all. I have good years ahead of me and I'm going to do good things.
I still want titles and goals.
I have one objective that everyone knows about: I love the blue (of France) and I will do everything to get it.
