Cisse: Supporters empower me

Malian on support from MK Dons fans...

11 September 2018

Ousseynou Cisse says the MK Dons supporters empower him every time they sing his name - which, so far this season, has been quite frequently!

The Malian midfielder is quickly becoming a fans favourite with the MK Dons faithful, following a strong start to his second season at Stadium MK, and speaking on the Club’s Facebook Page, he told of how their backing provides him with confidence on the pitch.

“It means a lot,” he said on the latest edition of Terrace Talk. “Every game they see me, they are happy and they are singing my name. I like it when they chant my name - it gives me more power.”

Cisse, who donned the captain’s armband in the Checkatrade Trophy tie with Peterborough United, has been involved in all-but one of MK Dons’ Sky Bet League Two matches this season and has impressed since adopting a more advanced role in the midfield.

That positional switch, he believes, has benefited him, along with support from manager Paul Tisdale.

He said: “Tis wants me to go forward more and that has given me a chance to express myself around the box.

“When he came, I knew he was going to be a good manager. He thinks a lot and he knows what we need to do on the pitch. I like how he sees football too.”
