Olympique Marseille striker Djibril Cisse expects to be booed by Liverpool fans this week.

"I just hope they don't boo me," he said. "It will be very emotional for me, meeting and playing against my old teammates. I am really looking forward to seeing all the Liverpool fans again.

"It will be strange for me, playing at Anfield in the colours of another club, but I am delighted to get the chance to see the fans once again."

Cisse, who showed his loyalty by getting married in Liverpool red, suffered a lack of starting appearances in his last season.

He told his former club's LFC magazine: "Liverpool were always my number one choice but you can't always have what you want in football.

"I still have my house nearby and have no plans to sell it. I get back to the area whenever I can.

"Sometimes you have to move on and I am happy to be at Marseille now. They are the club I have supported since my childhood and I have great pride to wear the shirt."
