Moussa Sissoko ready to get back on the field after lengthy injury layoff
The 30-year-old was sidelined in January with a knee injury, for which he had to undergo a surgery. And just when he was closing in on a return, football was suspended across the country because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking about how he has had to cope with, what he describes as his ‘first big injury’, Sissoko told the club’s official website:
“At the beginning it wasn’t easy. First of all, it was my first big injury since I played football. But after, you need to accept that and try to do everything to come back as soon as possible.”
The Frenchman went on to admit that while he was ready to return in March, the outbreak of Covid-19 provided him with more time to rest his knee and help him recover completely. (h/t TottenhamHotspur.com)
Sissoko also added that the lengthy layoff allowed him to spend some quality time with his family, and reflect on his career, while also mull over the future. (h/t TottenhamHotspur.com)
Speaking about his current physical condition, Sissoko said he is feeling good since returning to training and is ready to get back out on the field, once the season resumes. (h/t TottenhamHotspur.com)
“Now, since we’ve come back, I’m feeling very well. I don’t have any pain so I’m ready to go again, to compete and play games.”
