It’s been a rough few weeks for Djibril Cisse, first crashing out of the World Cup in embarrassing fashion and then crashing his car.
The French international is well-known for his wacky fashion sense (particularly involving his hair), but is perhaps best-known for his love of cars. At various times he has had in his garage a Chrysler 300 C, Hummer H2, Plymouth Prowler, Shelby GT 500 (1967 and 2008 versions) and Dodge Ram SRT-10.
Sadly, he will have one fewer car in that garage, as he was involved in an accident yesterday evening while on his way to training with Panathinaikos. The striker, who was on his way to continue rehabbing an injury sustained during a preseason friendly, was unharmed in the accident.
However, his €300,000 ($380,000) Bentley Continental GT sustained significant damage.
