Another International break, another interview and Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko has said again that he wants to play for a Champions League club, and when asked if he could leave Newcastle in the January transfer window – he didn’t rule that out.
Moussa Sissoko – needs to produce best form for Newcastle
Ever since Moussa joined Newcastle in January 2013 he has been part of the French National squad but like other French players before him he seems itching to move to a bigger club – one that plays Champions League football.
But Moussa hasn’t exactly been in his best form for Newcastle so far this season.
It’s time that players who play for Newcastle show their allegiance and in the eleven league games we have left until the end of the year – which are critical – we need to see every player wear the Newcastle shirt with pride and give 100% and be strong under adverse conditions.
That includes Moussa and he should be told by head coach Steve McClaren in no uncertain terms that he should be more loyal to Newcastle.
There are three other French internationals who have left Newcastle for bigger clubs – Mathieu Debuchy, Yohan Cabaye and Loic Remy who had a season on loan but wouldn’t make the deal permanent in the summer of last year.
All three ended up on the bench at their new clubs and the only one still in the French squad is Yohan Cabaye.
Yohan made the jump back to England in the summer to play for Crystal Palace and his former boss Alan Pardew and he seems back to his best form after having a terrible eighteen months at PSG.
The grass is not always greener on the other side – and if Moussa did play for a Champions League club he could have a hard time getting a first team place and could lose his French squad place.
Moussa should be trying to produce his very best form for Newcastle in the club’s time of need and thinking about nothing else.
If he still goes on in his interviews about playing elsewhere he should be shipped out next summer and a replacement brought in.
