France manager Didier Deschamps has called Moussa Sissoko “a good soldier” who is winning his battle to be a regular starter under Mauricio Pochettino according to The Mirror
Signed last summer for a then club record of £30m, it’s safe to say he struggled in his first season at White Hart Lane despite his starring role at Euro 2016.
However the former Newcastle midfielder has already made 10 appearances this season and he scored his first Spurs goal, albeit fortuitously, at Huddersfield this week.
The 28 year-old has been recalled into the France squad ahead of Manchester United’s Anthony Martial, to the disbelief of some United fans, and is set to play the up coming World Cup qualifiers against Bulgaria and Belarus.
The article goes on to say that national team boss Deschamps said: “Moussa is playing again – he is putting together a run of matches and he is playing well. He has experience and he had a really good Euros.
“He does not have a fixed position. He is a good soldier. When I use him, I know he is going to respond.”
Last season was clearly a difficult one for Moussa, but he stuck at it and his hard work and dedication is paying off. He has improved ten fold this year and after much derision he is beginning to prove a lot of people wrong.
What do you think?, is he worthy of his international recall and what about his future at Spurs. He certainly has become an extra option for us.
