Tottenham new boy Moussa Sissoko insists that he does not feel any pressure associated with his £30million price tag.
The French midfielder made the transfer deadline day move from recently relegated Newcastle United to Tottenham whilst breaking the hearts of Everton who had pinned their hopes on him joining them.
The £30m fee raised eyebrows from many given the fact that Daniel Levy had spent such a large amount on a 27-year-old.
“For me it is the same. I don’t have pressure,” Sissoko told the media.
“Newcastle asked for £30m, Tottenham paid it so that is good for me, good for Newcastle and good for Tottenham.
“Everyone is happy so that is the most important thing.”
“I spoke with Everton but when Tottenham came I wanted to join this club directly because it is a big club. Everything in my head was clear so I signed here,” Sissoko said.
Sissoko came on as a substitute against Monaco on Wednesday, said the chance to play in the Champions League was a major factor behind his decision.
“I’ve played in the Europa League and World Cups, I wanted to play in the Champions League. So I said yes I wanted to join this place.
“I’m very happy to be here. I need to work hard and be 100 per cent as soon as possible and help the team to win something and help them do well this season.”
