Moussa Sissoko has again been included in Didier Deschamps’ French squad for the friendly games against Sweden and Albania during the International break, and Moussa is showing the best form of his short career so far at Newcastle.
Moussa Sissoko – a Newcastle powerhouse
To call Moussa a powerful player is to understate his presence on the football pitch – and can you imagine a Moussa Sissoko coming at you full pelt with the ball – I just felt sick just thinking of it and how I could get out of the way. 😀
Like another Frenchman – Gabby Obertan – Moussa has shown his best form for Newcastle so far this season, and he was one of our top players against Liverpool and set up the goal that young Ayoze Perez scored in opportunist fashion, to get us all 3 points against the Reds.
Alan Pardew has always seen Moussa as an automatic starter ever since he arrived in January of last year from Toulouse, and the Newcastle manager is a real believer in the French powerhouse:
“You look at what we do, and Sissoko is a big part of that,” “He was a massive man for us.¨ “He didn’t get Man of the Match, because we’re just taking it for granted. He is a huge presence in this team, and has been our best player.”
The only worry we have about Moussa is that if he becomes too good, we could lose him to a bigger club, but since he’s been at Newcastle, the 25 year-old has given 100% every time he pulls that shirt on for Newcastle, and you cannot ask for much more than that.
And he’s also become a regular in the French squad since he arrived at Newcastle, and has played some very good games for his country this year too.
Moussa Sissoko is still improving on Tyneside, and he is fast becoming a top player for the Magpies.
