Djibril Cissť (born 12 August 1981 in Arles, France) is a French international football player who plays as a striker for both France and Liverpool. He plays as a striker and is noted particularly for his speed, acceleration and his dyed hair.

He signed for the French club Auxerre at the age of 15, and made his international debut against Belgium in May 2002. He won the French Cup with Auxerre in May 2003, and the Confederations Cup with France a month later.

Cissť was also the top scorer in the French Ligue 1 in the 2001-02 and 2003-04 seasons, before becoming Liverpool's record signing for more than £14.5 million in July 2004. Liverpool had pursued Cissť for a long time, and it was an open secret that former Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier admired Cissť's qualities.

He managed to score 70 goals in 128 league games for Auxerre, and has currently scored 3 goals in 15 first-team games in all competitions for Liverpool this season. He had only played 19 games for Liverpool when he broke his left leg playing against Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park on October 30, 2004. The injury was not a result of a tackle as was initially thought, but rather from an awkward fall as his foot appeared to be caught in the turf.

Cissť later revealed that had it not been for prompt attention from the trainers at the stadium (who had to pull his bones back into place with their hands), he would probably have lost the leg below the knee. He had pins inserted in the leg, and was expected to be out of action for the rest of the 2004-05 season. However, it was reported in late March 2005 that Cissť's recovery has advanced to the point that he may be able to return to action by the end of the season.
