Moussa Sissoko seems to have been born to play for Newcastle, and the 23 year-old French International is already a good player, but he will get a lot better in the next couple of seasons under the excellent coaching of Alan Pardew and his team.
Moussa Sissoko – in action on Sunday
That’s what’s happened to a number of Newcastle’s players who have arrived at the club, including Yohan Cabaye, Davide Santon, Papiss Cisse and Ben Arfa – and they’ve all become better players since they arrived on Tyneside.
Moussa will be no exception, and he seems to have fitted so smoothly into the Newcastle side, and the big man can of course play in a number of different positions – and he was up there in the stands on Sunday, celebrating the winning goal with goalscorer Papiss Cisse.
This is what the Newcastle powerhouse player told the Evening Chronicle today:
“Fulham was an example of us fighting until the end.” “We knew in our heads that victory was all that was needed – no matter how we got it.”
“It was a case of going out from minute one to minute 95 and giving our all to get that result.” “What it shows is the great team spirit we have at this club, that we can go out there and get a result even in stoppage time.”
“The victory now is a fantastic thing pressing on.” “It’s great for our morale and team spirit going forward.” “It gives us so much strength heading into the final matches of the season.”
“We know this is a week that’s important for the players – but not just us, the club and the supporters.” “We have a second leg that we know isn’t going to be easy.”
“But we know it will be an interesting match and it’s a night that we could qualify for the semis.” “We have good motivation for us going forward.”
This is now all set to be a great European night for Newcastle fans on Thursday, and it will be a sell-out crowd on Thursday night – and we are now getting regular home crowds over 50,000 and next season, when we expect to be fighting for a top six spot again – we should have sell-out crowds for every home league game.
It’s back to the future for Newcastle.
