Moussa Sissoko has had to put up with some withering criticism form fans this season as his form has been up and down.
In some games he’s looked good and that was the case on Sunday when he brilliantly set up the second goal for Gini Wijnaldum in stoppage time to make the score look a healthy 2-0 against Liverpool.
Moussa Sissoko challenges Jordan Ibe last Sunday
This is what Moussa has said in the Chronicle:
“When we win the fans sing my name. If we lose or play badly, they are disappointed with me.”
“Every game I try to do my very best. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. But I give everything I have.”
“I hope this win gives us more confidence for the future.” “We have enjoyed the win over Liverpool this week but we are now preparing for the massive game with Tottenham.”
Moussa is at his best when he’s attacking down that right wing, but last Sunday he tracked back well too and in fact won the ball before the goal in stoppage time.
He’s definitely a good player but certainly he could improve on his defensive play and sometimes he seems not interested – especially when things are not going Newcastle’s way.
Since joining us almost three years ago from Toulouse he’s played 109 games for Newcastle with 11 goals and 16 assists.

Can you help 3 year-old Kian?
On 31st October 2013 then 18 month old Kian from Prudhoe was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma cancer – and it was high risk stage 4 plus MYCN – which is the most aggressive form of this rare cancer.
The parents were told he had a 50/50 chance of survival during treatment and if successful an 80% chance of a relapse, and while the initial treatment seemed to be successful a relapse has taken place.
Advanced treatment for Kian is only available in Germany or the USA and the cost of treatment is £550K.
His parents are trying desperately to raise the money after an agonizing last couple of years – please take a look on this web-site where there is a lot more information – and see if you can help out.
