It’s International break time again so we were expecting to hear again from Moussa Sissoko.
Moussa is not having an easy time of it at Tottenham since he moved there for a massive fee on the last day of the transfer market, because he didn’t want to play in England’s second tier – not a player of his ability.
So along with Andros Townsend, Gini Wijnaldum and Daryl Janmaat he left Newcastle and come to think of it none of those players are having a particularly good time of it at their new clubs.
Moussa Sissoko in Tottenham’s colors
Although Andros Townsend is in the England squad for the game at Wembley on Friday against Scotland and that’s one reason he wanted to move – to remain in the England squad.
Newcastle are playing extremely well and we have won 15 of our last 17 games, so we aren’t grumbling at all and we have had some of the best results since Kevin Keegan was managing the club in the 1990s – even if it is in the Championship.
This is what Moussa Sissoko has said about Newcastle to Footmercato:
“I have lots of friends there. We stayed in touch. I see what they do, that’s fine. They are doing very well.”
“I hope it will go on like this all season and they will have the chance to go back in the Premier League.”
Tottenham paid Newcastle a massive £30M for Moussa and while it’s maybe too early to judge that deal from Tottenham’s viewpoint, it was a terrific deal for Newcastle.
To get that amount of money for a player who is so inconsistent is a good deal in anybody’s book and he’s already shown that inconsistency wearing a Tottenham shirt.
Well at least he’s not talking about wanting to join a bigger club because he wants to play in the Champions League – that broken record has finally stopped.
