Yves Bissouma sends message after fulfilling Champions League dream with Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur new signing Yves Bissouma moved to the club this summer from Brighton & Hove Albion. And last Wednesday night, he made his dream Champions League debut.

The 26-year-old came on from the bench for Rodrigo Bentancur in the 85th minute. It was his first game in the premier European competition and the player took to his Instagram to send a message after fulfilling his dream.

Special night for me yesterday it’s was a big dream to play my first game in this amazing competition we follow the process… Congratulations to the whole team, the 3 points were very important

Spurs signed Bissouma for £25 million with another £10 million agreed in add-ons. He was one of the seven signings that Antonio Conte made this summer and signed a four-year deal at the club.

He has played in six games total this season in all competitions, starting in only one of them. The midfielder is still to break into the first team and establish himself.

The duo of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Bentancur have been in exceptional form for Spurs in the middle of the park this season. It is understandable why Conte does not break that partnership.

But the midfielder will have to play and the coach knows that. With the congested fixtures coming up in the next couple of months, it is no doubt that the Mali international will get to start a few games.

Spurs’ next game against Manchester City has been cancelled due to the passing away of Her Majesty The Queen. This means that the club is likely to take on Sporting Lisbon for their second Champions League game this Tuesday.

Having one their first game, Conte could be enticed to give Bissouma a chance in the next game. It remains to be seen if the midfielder gets his first start in the prestigious competition.

More Tottenham News:

Hojbjerg has formed a solid partnership with Bentancur and it wouldn’t be entirely wrong to presume that Conte would want to stick with what is working for the club – especially after the extended period of rest due to the fixture postponement.
