And that’s where you’re wrong Djibril Cisse. Accusations that the French striker tried to blackmail Mathieu Valbuena are clearly funny.
Cisse has denied any wrongdoing in the sex tape scandal; he had merely been trying to do a friend a favour.
In an interview with intriguingly named French TV programme Touche pas a mon poste (Don’t Touch My TV), Cisse said:
“I have nothing to do with it, Mathieu is a friend of mine,” Cisse told host Cyril Hanouna. “I just warned him that there was something hot going on involving him. That’s it. End of story.
“Frankly, it’s not funny. It’s something that could have been very bad for me and for him.”
Cisse was questioned by French police as ‘a person of interest’ but Cisse claims they just wanted to “hear my side of the story”.
