Liverpool picked up a 1-0 victory against Stoke ahead of their trip to Villa Park on Saturday.

And the 25-year-old managed to take time out of preparing for Valencia's game against Malaga to see his new team in action.

"Valencia weren't playing until 11pm, so I had plenty of time during the afternoon to watch the game while still at home," said Cissokho.

"I saw the whole game, I already knew I was going to sign for Liverpool so it was great that they won and played well.

"It was a very good start and the beginning of the season is always important. It was a very good performance against a Stoke side that defended well as a team.

"They played very well with a lot of passing the ball on the deck and the forward players showed a lot of skill and weren't scared to try things. It was an entertaining game to watch."

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
