Moussa Sissoko kept infuriating Newcastle fans during his tenure at Newcastle when he kept talking to the French press about wanting to move to a big club who played in the Champions League.
And then would say stuff like – but I’m still at Newcastle at the moment but hope to join a big club one day.
That day came last August 31st when Newcastle somehow persuaded both Everton and Tottenham that the player was worth £30M – a figure that astounded most Newcastle fans.
There were rumors last summer Moussa Sissoko wasn’t happy at Newcastle
Who started that rumor?
We thought that club officials could end up in jail for false representation of goods and even fraud.
But the deal went through with big fanfare and we couldn’t believe our luck – £30M for Moussa.
This was a player who we think turned up for two games at Newcastle the previous season under Steve McClaren – well maybe we are being hard on the Frenchman – it could have been three games.
Rafa did however start to get the best out of him and he then played extremely well for France in the Euro 2016 Championships – a player Newcastle fans did not recognize last summer.
And it looks like the move to Tottenham has not really worked out as he warms to bench at the club being taken places by their impressive young Argentine manager Mauricio Pochettino
French newspaper L’Equipe are reporting today the Frenchman. who has also lost his place in the French squad, believe Moussa Sissoko will leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
L’Equipe are reporting that Tottenham officials will have talks with the player’s representatives within the next two weeks, with it being almost inevitable that Tottenham will want to sell the player this summer.
He was in France’s squad from the time he joined Newcastle in January 2013 and as soon as he left the club he lost his International place – not an unusual occurrence for players who leave Newcastle for “big clubs”.
That may be because they start to warm the bench?
What do you think?
