In his press conference yesterday afternoon, Alan Pardew spoke about the season that Moussa Sissoko has had, and the French International, who will be out for two to three weeks with a hamstring strain, has played 35 times for Newcastle with three goals and five assists so far this season.
Moussa Sissoko – after scoring at Hull City
And ever since the 24 year-old arrived from Toulouse fifteen months ago, he has been a starter at the club, usually out on the left wing, where he makes some of those powerful surging runs of his.
But he can also play in central midfield, and Alan announced the 6’2″ powerhouse had a hamstring injury, he had this to say about the 14 times capped French International, who is almost certain to be in the French squad for the World Cup in Brazil this summer:
“We have a real injury crisis at the moment.” “We’ve lost Moussa this week, so of the team which started when we beat Man United, five won’t play, although one has left the club.”
“Moussa has a hamstring strain and we think it will be two or three weeks.” “He’s been a terrific player for us and has had a great season.”
Since joining Newcastle a year last January, Moussa has played 53 times for Newcastle with 6 goals and 11 assists, and one good thing is that the player is still improving on Tyneside, and he will be even better next season.
There you go – even more good news this morning.
