Moussa Sissoko was rumored to want away from Newcastle a couple of weeks ago, when supposed comments from his agent were published that said his contract ran out next summer, which was false, but Moussa came out the following day and said he had no intentions of leaving Newcastle, and that he was hoping that next season the club can again push for a top six finish, which we achieved a short two years ago.
Moussa Sissoko – upbeat on Newcastle
Newcastle have Mathieu Debuchy and Moussa Sissoko in the French squad, and Tim Krul is in the Dutch squad, and Cheick Tiote is in the Ivory Coast squad, and we are hoping that veteran striker Shola Ameobi, who will leave Newcastle next month after playing 14 years in the first team, gets into the 23 man Nigerian squad, which will be announced later today.
And unluckily, 21 year-old center-back Curtis Good of Newcastle was left out of the Australian squad because of that hip injury of his, and that must have been a tough blow for the young Aussie.
This is what Moussa has said today:
“It can give everyone associated with Newcastle confidence, because it shows we have a great squad here.¨ “Having players at the World Cup can only help in pushing this club forward.”
“It would be another one of my dreams come true.¨ “My first was to become a professional footballer, the second was to play for my county, and going to the World Cup is my third dream.¨
“I hope I am lucky enough to be selected to play.”
Those are positive words from the powerful Newcastle midfielder, who was one of the few players last season to have a good season in the famous black and white shirts of Newcastle United.
And it’s good to hear a bit of positivity (is that a word?) for a change, and especially coming from one of our best players.
