Liverpool and France defender Aly Cissokho has shrugged off criticism of his performances as he waits to find out if he has a future at the club Anfield beyond the end of his loan spell from Valencia.

The 26 year old told L'Equipe: "In my first match against Notts County, after five minutes, my ankle turned. It was a big ankle sprain.

"The most important injury in my whole career so far and at the worst moment. A piece of cartilage moved. I had to undergo surgery in London.

"It was a very difficult moment. I was afraid. Surgery delayed my adaptation.

"Critics? I am used to not winning unanimous support. I let people have their own opinion and I give my best."

Cissokho has always been aware of Liverpool's history and feels a great sense of pride at playing for such a club.

He explained: "You'll Never Walk Alone? That hymn impressed me when I was a kid. It is beautiful, extraordinary. The first time I could hear it with the red shirt on my back, I felt a lot of emotions.

"I thought about how far I have come, all those years when I worked hard to achieve my dream."

He told Canal+: "Valencia is also a great club, but there are a lot of economic problems in Spain.

"I have given my very best for Liverpool and we will see at the end of the season what both clubs will decide.

"If I have to leave Liverpool, I will leave. I am doing a nice job and that is the most important."
