Moussa Sissoko Is Now On Dangerous Ground


Moussa Sissoko would be well advised to follow Gini Wijnaldum’s example at Newcastle and act in a professional manner while he is waiting for his transfer to come through – if in fact it does come through.

Gini trained well for over three weeks and seemed to be upbeat and enjoy the training and he played in a few of our pre-season games.

He wisely didn’t take any interviews, because he still wanted to leave the club and he did leave, when Liverpool came in with an acceptable offer of 25M for him.

Gini then sent a message to the Newcastle fans – so that’s the right and proper way to leave a club if you want to leave.

Moussa Sissoko – should watch what he says to the press

But Moussa seems to thinks he ‘s above Newcastle and he said this to the French media yesterday:

“I resumed training on Monday.” “I am preparing with my own coach. I joined the squad slowly, hoping the transfer will be soon.”

“But I am not going to sign without thinking. With everything, I take time to think.”

“Real Madrid are a very big club, but you have to think and have no regrets.”

“I still hope to have the chance to join a more exclusive club. Now we are negotiating with Newcastle.”

“My agent has had discussions with the club. They are open to a departure. We are in discussions. We’ll see what happens.”

It’s very bad to talk in the press about wanting to leave Newcastle soon – and that’s disrespecting the club who are still paying his wages.

The Chronicle are reporting Moussa could even have broken club rules by giving his two interviews to the French media over this weekend – which has again sickened Newcastle fans.

Moussa’s massive ego is there for all to see ever since he had a couple of good games for France in the knockout rounds.

Rafa could even play him in the game against Huddersfield on Saturday and it wouldn’t be a big surprise if Rafa tells him to train this week to be ready to be in the squad for the Terriers.

Moussa should tread very carefully over the next few weeks until the end of the month or until such time that he gets his move away from Newcastle to a dream club.

Comments welcome.

    Let him buy out his contract for £40m with a loan from Wonga then recoup the cost when he sells himself to the elusive dream club he craves

    @ToonTaff – Wouldn’t take any of them, pretty sure Dummetts only been to wales a hand full of times, hes only welsh because his dad moved to Newcastle as a kid.
    I’d take the left back though! Either of them, Davies or Naylor, Naylor reminds me of Enrique! I’d take him back also actually!
    Pretty sure the only welsh players worth signing (Bale, Ramsey, Davies) are immovable from their clubs

    For me if he is fit he plays one of our better players what’s the point in paying him if we are not going to play him

    Ian, yes certain people have very absolutist positions here. I was annoyed with rafa’s tactics partly because its exactly what i said could happen based on last year and based on Liverpool fans here whom i know. At home we could go 4132 and do serious damage. In some ways his decision is easier now because colback may have played himself off the team. Diame will do much damage for us. We just need to get some wins to take the heat off and get mitro in there to helo the smallies. I still think we will go for a big fast and talented striker, possibly from abroad.

    Get lost Sissoko you whore, I hope the club fines you the equivalent of your signing on fee for breech of club rules so we can use that money to buy a few players for the academy who will be happy to play in front of 52k fans week in week out……….plonker

    Far too late to be on dangerous ground. He has continually spouted off about wanting to leave for a more ‘exclusive’ club (even though there appears to be no solid interest from any of the clubs he quotes)

    His attitude is disgraceful and will hardly encourage a team to follow up any interest. He would do well to remember that

    actually think his presence in the side on Saturday would be negative. The crowd atm, despite the loss are on a high, first home game etc all behind the manager! Sissoko would sour the day and bring a negative feel to the game.

    I don’t know whether the guy is totally stupid or some things get distorted in translation but jeez what is he on?
    If we are still playing his wages and he is still here come Saturday then damn right I would put him in the squad – crowd reaction should be interesting to say the least!

    I think a lot of this is down to translation and very selective editing. Shit stirring for want of a better expression. Jib posted an unedited interview in German the other day and he said nothing disrespectful about the club or the fans. Far from it. I think we seriously need to take these interviews with a large dose of salts, let alone a pinch. Neither do i feel there is a need to jump over everything he’s reported to have said. Virtually every other page on here is Sissoko said this, Sissoko said that. Don’t think I’m defending him, just reminding people that the press is full of it and still has an axe to grind with us. We get the picture – he wants away to improve from the Championship. Every player we have needs to aspire to better than this or what’s the point? He’s not part of the squad right now. He’ll be gone soon. This is turning into a witch hunt that imo is becoming very boring.

    Anyone think the Sissoko transfer has already been sorted?

    I have the sneaking suspicion that everything has already been agreed. If we let him leave immediately after the Euros then we would have a load of cash and would have to pay +5-10m on every transfer into the club as teams would know we’ve got the money. I wouldn’t be surprised if Rafa already agreed to let him leave and agreed fees and such with a buying club but said he would have to wait for a few weeks so that we could do our business un-molested. At least, that’s what I’m hoping.

    @Madison – No! No, buying club would accept that. We are already trying to rob them blind with such an exorbitant transfer fee. If any club offers us £30+ million we’ll bite their hands off, not risk them taking the offer off the table by saying they have to wait 3-4 weeks before the signing goes through.

    It’s happened before with other clubs in purchases, I don’t see why it wouldn’t be doable here. If they know they’re getting their man then it shouldn’t be a big deal for them either if it gets sorted that way in negotiations. IF another club would offer 30m+ then they cannot think we’re robbing them blind or they wouldn’t offer it so that line of thinking holds no water.

    Reckon the sissoko one will go to the last day.
    Apparantly Man Utd are looking at picking up Matuidi too… Be a couple of moussa’s dream clubs needing a midfielder.
    Surprised Mourinho hasn’t sniffed around him tbh, to be fair to Sissoko, hes usually ripped mourinhos teams apart when we’ve played chelsea

    Sissoko wants to remember he’s still a Newcastle player atm. He probably will get his move but he’ll end up bench warming for long periods of time especially if he ends up at Real Madrid.
    Newcastle are within there rights to hang onto him, he’s still under contract.

    Do you see much Dutch football on your travels? I’ve been keeping one eye on Hakim Ziyech of FC Twente over the last couple of years who I really like the look of,any thoughts? If anyone else watches Dutch football you can give your opinion on him also.

    When Mitrovic comes back there’s going to be a good spine to team from defence to up front, if Benitez plays 4231 which I’m sure he will then the spine will be.

    Lascelles
    Hayden
    Diame
    Mitrovic

    That’s height, strength and power.

    What may be effecting movement on the Sissoko situation could be the fact that Real Madrid are playing Sevilla in the European Supercup at Lerkendal Stadion, Trondheim, Norway tomorrow evening.

    It could be Luka Modric’ swansong for the Whites before returning to the UK in partex for MS to help NUFC get out of the Championship!!!!

    @Madison – the difference is that when it has happened in the past it has been an agreement at the end of the season with the official announcement made as pre-season starts. It doesn’t happen when there are less than 2 weeks of pre-season left. Any club who wants him, will want him to be training with the team as soon as they can so that he is settled and ready to play as soon as possible.

    Maybe a career-ending injury sustained in the next few weeks might just allow us to claim on the Club’s insurance. He gets the dream move he deserves and we get a few quid.

    And re. the ‘robbing them blind’ comment – it does hold water, we are asking for 35 million, and no one has bid for him, people may want him but everyone is dubious at that price. As the window goes on people may get desperate and be willing to pay that price but not at the moment. 35million is a hell of a lot and there are plenty of other (more prestigious) options at that price point. If we start playing silly beggars they’ll just go and get any one of the other 20 options.

    As you say anymore bridges burned by Sissoko could potentially cause a problem for our fans south of the Tyne.

    But, their determination to get to SJP could see the Metro and the tunnels jammed solid and that being so, we might just see the waters parting twice on Saturday for the great Geordie tribe.

    Moussaka is aGreek dish made up of layered aubergine or egg plant as it is also known, combined with a ragu minced beef sauce and also a bechemal sauce. It can be sprinkled with a nice local cheese and then baked in the oven. Delicious when served with a crisp green salad.
