Moussa Sissoko has been interviewed by L´Equipe and the French International told them he was happy to be at Newcastle even if our results are poor at the moment and he also thinks he can flourish on Tyneside.
The 26 year-old also said that his family were very proud that he was playing in the Premier League at such a high level.

This is what Moussa has said and he seems to be fairly positive even though we are precariously placed in 4th bottom place in the Premier League:
“I am happy to be at this club. Even if the results are not great at the moment, it is a club where I can flourish and where I have a lot of playing time.”
I am lucky to play in England. It is there where I have always wanted to play because it is in this league where I can flourish the most with my abilities.”
“My aim is to become a professional footballer. I got the chance to sign my professional contract and play very earlier. I have always had my family close to me. I try to enjoy that fully.”
My family is very proud to see me at this level. I came from a difficult place, so I hope and aspire to go further and higher.”
Moussa was playing in Paris a week last Friday evening in the game against Germany when the terrible terrorist attacks were carried out in Paris.
We wouldn´t be too surprised if that affected Moussa´s form on Saturday against Leicester City when we were hammered 3-0.
But the terrorist attacks have made all of us thankful for what we have – and that includes Moussa.
