The Moussa Sissoko rollercoaster has surely come to an end at Tottenham after his latest quotes in French newspaper L’Equipe (h/t Express).
We all know the crazy amount Daniel Levy sanctioned to bring the Frenchman from Newcastle last summer following an impressive Euro 2016. But things didn’t really click for the 27-year-old and he failed to win any admirers while playing for us.
Sissoko only started 12 games for Spurs last season and mostly made substitute appearances. This hasn’t fallen well with the Frenchman and rather extraordinary, he has asked Mauricio Pochettino to come out clean about his future at Tottenham.
The Express quoted Sissoko via L’Equipe,
“I would like him to communicate better. I want a completely honest conversation to see what they plan to do, what they are seeing in terms of my future. From that moment on, everything will be clearer in my head. If the manager is no longer counting on me, if he thinks that other players are better, then he should say it. The idea is to be clear very early to allow, if I need to leave, for my agent to do good work.”
The Frenchman even stated that playing in the World Cup in 2018 is his goal which means he has to play regularly for a side, something that won’t happen at Spurs.
There could be a few bumps along the way as Sissoko is contracted with us till 2021 and we are pretty sure Levy would want to get as much of the reported £30million paid for the Frenchman’s services back.
In all honesty, we should just cut further losses and let Sissoko leave as quickly as possible. We don’t need to have players who are not committed to the cause ahead of another important season coming up. It is okay to be out of form. It happens with every player. But take the example of Vincent Janssen. The boy is focused, he wants to put his head down and work towards playing well next season. Now that’s how a player’s attitude should be.
This is not a welcome comment from Sissoko in my opinion and it would be better if we offload him as quickly as possible.
