Rafa Benitez has said he thinks that Moussa Sissoko, not always the most popular player with the fans, has everything including potential and quality and certainly the new manager seems to think it will take very little to make Moussa into a top player at Newcastle.
Certainly since Rafa arrived Moussa seems a little stunned that he is now training with one of the best managers in the world and his work rate in the last two games has been good.
Moussa has always talked about being part of a bigger club then Newcastle and one that plays in the Champions League.
Moussa Sissoko –
But the Frenchman can see that if we survive this season, maybe the last thing he will want to do is to leave Newcastle with Rafa being good enough to deliver some great things in the future at the famous Tyneside club – if only we can avoid relegation.
Rafa says when he first arrived he talked to the big man and Moussa was very positive.
This is what the Newcastle manager has said about Moussa in the Chronicle today:
“I was talking with him right at the beginning and he was very positive. He was very clear. In terms of his work-rate on the pitch he’s been fantastic.”
“If he carries on doing this he’ll be better. He has everything: potential and quality.”
“He has a lot of things it’s just being sure he will put things onto the pitch. You saw in the last game he was running and passing players, he still has to improve things.”
Moussa is just one of the Newcastle star players who have not produced for us this season and if the 26 year-old can start playing somewhere near his best form for the team – we may even have a chance of surviving this season.
If we can do that then the future for Moussa and for Newcastle United will look very bright indeed.
That´s a fact.
Howay The Lads!!
