The new hero on Tyneside has been interviewed on nufcTV after the game yesterday – and while her spoke in French – we have been impressed with both Yohan Cabaye and Papiss Cisse who have given interviews in the last week and their English is already very good.
Moussa Sissoko – after scoring winner yesterday
Sissoko is getting all the plaudits today – following a phenomenal performance form the 23 year-old yesterday – and this lad is fast becoming a huge fan favorite with the Newcastle fans, and what he has said on nufcTV will only enhance that.
Sissoko talked to nufcTV and Rob Scanlon, and this is some of what he said in this interview.
“I gave 100 per cent, the very best I could.” “I was signed to do that, to give everything, to fight from the first to the 90th minute – that’s what I try to do.” “I’m very happy today but we can’t forget that it was a team performance.”
“The team worked together. I played well but it’s a team effort.” “We came away with three points as a team and I hope we can continue to perform like that and continue to climb up the Premier League as high as possible.”
“It was a fantastic afternoon.” “Two goals and three points against Chelsea – a fantastic team – in front of a full-house, who supported us fantastically this afternoon. I couldn’t be happier.” “I’ve never had so much encouragement and support.”
“I always said I wanted to come to England to play in the Premier League and witness this sort of support.” “I’m delighted to be here at Newcastle. This is a great club and I hope we can continue to have fantastic games like that and continue to do well.”
Moussa also said that for the final goal it was Davide Santon who did all the work – Davide had two great assists yesterday – and Moussa says he just had to tap and ball into the back of the net, and Rob Scanlon asked him if he had a Twitter account – since fans had been asking – but he said he didn’t have one.
Moussa has walked around the City center sinc esigning 9 days ago fr Newcatsle – and fans have come up to him for his autograph – but after yesterday’s performance he may be mobbed by delighted Newcastle fans – if he’s sighted in the City center next week.
Moussa comes over as a humble lad – and he talked all about the team – and not his individual performance – but what a player he is – and it makes it even better when he seems to just love Newcastle United Football Club.
Howay The Lads!!
