Papiss Cisse Insists He’s No Turkey
It’s funny that when transfer stories are published/made-up, when it is a club from beyond these shores that they chuck into the equation, they are always referred to as ‘giants’.
It is never Spanish nobodies, Russian middle of the road, German who?, or French also-rans; it is always Spanish / French / Italian / San Marino ‘Giants’.
I have heard of them, kind of, I suppose a bit like Norwich or Aston Villa, if you are looking over from Turkey.
It now transpires that, unsurprisingly, Papiss Cisse is not in negotiations with a move to the Turkish giants who last year finished ninth in their domestic league. In fact, the player has said he is ‘mystified’ by the stories.
I can see plenty more ‘Giants’ we’ll encounter before we make it safely through to the end of the transfer window.
Let us hope none of them are the kind of Giants from my childhood reading books that will gobble you (players?) up….
