Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Aston Villa signing Aly Cissokho: 'Why?'

Liverpool Fans At Carling Cup Final

Reds fans were far from complimentary in their assessment of Villa's new left-back.

Every once in a while, Liverpool sign a player that goes down in the club's folklore forever - for the wrong reasons.

David Ngog and Andriy Voronin are two such 'legends,' with the unforgettable Djimi Traore also of the same mould.

And, not unlike Traore in terms of playing style, last season saw Aly Cissokho brought to Anfield on a season-long loan. Suffice to say, he'll be remembered by the Kop... but not for any particular achievements.

By the end of his debut (and only) campaign at Liverpool, the 26-year-old had lost his place in the side to Jon Flanagan (previously a right-back) and left his mark as a Frenchman who simply could not cross the ball for love nor money.

Just a couple of months later, however, Cissokho has returned to the Premier League - completing a move to Aston Villa yesterday.

Paul Lambert will thus be hoping the Reds' loss can be Villa's gain. But that's not quite how Liverpool fans see it.

Indeed, supporters of the Anfield club have been far from complimentary in their assessment of the 26-year-old full-back, questioning why Villa have decided to sign the Frenchman.

See just what Liverpool fans had to say below. If you are an admirer of Cissokho's, however, look away now!

What do you make of Aston Villa's signing of Cissokho?
