Lazio's Cisse keeps door ajar for future MLS move

Lazio striker Djibril Cisse admits he would one day like to play Major League Soccer.

The Frenchman, who counts the likes of Liverpool, Sunderland, Auxerre and Marseille amongst his former clubs, landed in Rome from Greek club Panathinaikos in the summer.

Despite previously stating that he did not think his game was suited for the Italian Serie A, Cisse decided to sign with the Aquile and has indicated that his playing days in Europe are definitely not over.

But he has also revealed that a much-talked-about move to North America's MLS is also a future possibility.

"I have wonderful memories of my time with Pana in Greece," Cisse told France Football.

"On a sporting level I had reached a crossroads - I either stayed and saw out my career there or I took on a new challenge. I chose to move to another major league. It was the right time to move.

"It is true that I had always stated that I would never move to Italy because I thought Serie A was not made for me. Only stupid people refuse to change their mind.

"USA is a country that I like and could attract me at some point, but not right now. I still have things to prove in Europe."
