Most Newcastle fans would agree that Moussa Sissoko has had another poor season, where the 35 times capped French International has promised much but given little.
In his 33 games for Newcastle this season in all competitions he has only 5 assists and no goals – with his last goal for the club coming in the last game of last season.
That´s simply not good enough for a player of Moussa’s ability.
Moussa Sissoko – another disappointing season
He has given a long interview to the Chronicle today and the Frenchman hints he needs to do better in the final six games of this season:
“The most important thing as a footballer is the next game that is coming..” “You use the time to prepare for the game and the next one is Swansea..”
“We need to do everything to win this game..” “If we win it can be massive for us because Sunderland play at Norwich..” “Somebody is going to lose points and we can make a step forward into the right direction..”
“It’s a massive game for everybody – but we must make sure we win..” “We have to prepare but I am sure we will be ready for Swansea.”
“Now, we know with six games left and we have to give everything. You can’t go beyond the next game.”
“It’s game by game for us, it’s six finals. You try to win the first, then the second and so on – that’s it.”
“For me the most important thing is that the team wins.” “If I score or somebody else does, I’m happy. I like to score and give assists.”
“This season I have not done what I want to do, but it’s not finished yet. We have six games left.” “So I hope I will score some goals before the end and give some assists.”
“But the main thing is we win games.” “If I play well and somebody else scores that’s also good for me.”
Moussa was signed from Toulouse back in January 2013 and since then he has played 127 times for the club with 11 goals and 18 assists.
But overall he has been disappointing, even though he’s always been an automatic choice for the first team.
Maybe Moussa can do something for us tomorrow – like score a goal or make one – or play well?
We expect Moussa, along with Gini Wijnaldum and Daryl Janmaat at least, to be some of the players who will exit the club this summer.
Where Newcastle go from there we have no idea.
