Ex-Liverpool star Djibril Cisse signs for new club aged 39 as he joins American fourth-tier side Panathinaikos Chicago

FORMER Liverpool star Djibril Cisse has signed for American fourth-tier side Panathinaikos Chicago at the age of 39.

The French striker has been without a club since leaving Swiss Division Three outfit Yverdon Sports.

But PAO Chicago announced on Twitter their newest signing, writing: "Once Green, Always Green."

Cisse played for Greek giants Panathinaikos between 2009-11 after leaving Marseille.

He scored an impressive 47 goals in just 61 games during his time with the Greeks.

Cisse joined Liverpool from Auxerre in 2004 for £14m, but struggled with injuries which included a horror leg break.

Panathinaikos Chicago is the 13th club of the nomadic striker's career.

But Cisse's talents don't end on the football pitch.

He has always been a lover of clothes and has long taken an interest in the world's biggest designers.

And since playing in the Premier League, the 38-year-old has turned to modelling.


He hit the catwalk in the final show of Jean-Paul Gaultier in the French capital last year.

Sporting a suave blue Gaultier suit and blazer combination, the Frenchman strutted his stuff down the catwalk.

And the former striker excited the crowd by showing off his tattooed torso as he removed his blazer.

The event took place at Paris' Theatre du Chatelet and involved modelling royalty.

Cisse was followed on the catwalk by the likes of Karlie Kloss, as well as supermodel sisters Bella and Gigi Hadid.
