Team: Liverpool
Sport: Soccer
Year: 2004

Known for his incredible speed, Cisse has been an excellent goal scorer throughout his career. He did not last long after moving to Liverpool, though; in just his 19th game, a seemingly innocent challenge from Blackburn's Jay McEveley turned grotesque when Cisse's cleat stuck in the ground and broke his tibia and fibula. After surgery to have pins inserted, Cisse remarkably returned to action less than six months later.
