Cisse reveals Bolton snub

11 Jul 2007 - 13:26:33

Djibril Cisse claims he snubbed a move to Bolton Wanderers because he didn't want to play for a club in the 'third tier' of the Premier League.

Cisse ended his miserable three-year stay with Liverpool at the beginning of the week when he signed for Marseille in a £6million deal.

Bolton were also interested in signing the France international, but Cisse has revealed he never even considered joining the Trotters.

"The situation was clear with Liverpool - they didn't want me to stay and I wasn't going to force them to keep me," he said.

"For me, it was OM (Olympique Marseille) or nothing. People wanted to send me to Bolton or Atletico Madrid, but I said no.

"To go to a club in the third level of the English, that doesn't interest me.

"Here I have less money, but I have the Champions League. Some clubs were offering not far off double the salary, but I am from Marseille and I have always supported this club."

Liverpool paid Auxerre £14million for Cisse in 2004 but the Marseille-born striker started just 48 games - and scored 13 goals - during his injury-ravaged time at Anfield.
