Another of Liverpool’s exiled players could be on his way back to Anfield in the summer. Bruno Cheyrou was signed by Gerard Houllier from Lille in 2002, but failed to make much of an impact. He was sent on loan at the start of this season to French club Olympique Marseille.
Cheyrou, now 26, has found the Marseille coach Phillippe Troussier doesn’t rate him very highly. He’s only made 16 appearances, scoring one goal. He has managed to get four yellow cards though. Cheyrou played for France three times, and he felt that if he went back to France to play football he might get more recognition and more international chances. Obviously it didn’t work out.
Now Bruno wants to come back to the club that still holds his contract. In an interview on the Marseille website he said, "I still belong to Liverpool and I’ll probably go back there. "I’ll talk to the Liverpool officials and we’ll see if they want me to stay or if I have to look for another club. I want to play in a team where I’ll get to play at least 30 to 40 games a season"
Liverpool play against Chelsea tonight (in case you hadn’t heard) – the team
that have beaten them three times this season already. Last season
Liverpool won the league game 1-0 at Stamford Bridge – and Bruno Cheyrou
was the goalscorer!
