Midfielder wants a reunion with Liverpool following West Brom trial
By Will Butcher
Combative holding midfielder Mohamed Sissoko is hoping for an Anfield return as he looks to earn a contract with West Brom.
The 31-year-old was one of two trialists in the Baggies’ friendly against Indian Premier League side Delhi Dynamos on Saturday. Sissoko was joined by former Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh.
Speaking to Sky Sports, the former Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus midfielder said that he would love to go back to Anfield after his three-year stay in Merseyside.
“I have a lot of good memories from my time at Liverpool,” Sissoko said, when speaking to Sky Sports. “It was a great time in my career and I hope I can go back there with West Brom or another club and enjoy some good moments with my ex-team.”
Sissoko moved to Juventus from Liverpool in January 2008 for £9.5million, and he played 100 games for the Italian giants, scoring just three goals.

Since then he’s had spells with Paris Saint-Germain, Fiorentina and Levante, and was released by last club Shanghai Greenland Shenhua earlier this year.
After an impressive performance against the Dynamos which resulted in a 1-0 win at the Hawthorns, Sissoko is hopeful he can earn a new deal and return to Anfield to play against his former side. As a free agent he is able to sign outside of the transfer window.
Tony Pulis’s side face travel to Merseyside to face Liverpool on October 22.
The combative midfielder made 86 appearances for Liverpool, after signing from La Liga giants Valencia in 2005. He scored just one goal for the Reds but managed to pick up 24 league and cup yellow cards.
