The transformation of Moussa Sissoko from scapegoat to one of the first names on the Tottenham Hotspur team sheet has been one of the most beautiful things to witness over the current campaign.
The midfielder endured a tough couple of seasons following his then record transfer from Newcastle United and could hardly manage to string a pass to a team-mate.
After undergoing his first full pre-season with the club, he has been arguably the club’s most consistent performer and has made the most of his opportunity to fill the void left by Mousa Dembele along with the persistent injury issues which Victor Wanyama and Eric Dier have endured.
Sissoko took his place in the Spurs starting eleven for the second leg of the Champions League clash against Manchester City on Wednesday evening and many fans feared their hopes of reaching the next round had taken a significant blow when the Frenchman was forced off after suffering a groin injury just before half time.
Thankfully Sissoko’s absence did not prove to be costly and the club booked their place in the semi final which led to one of his former clubs, Toulouse taking to Twitter to congratulate the 29-year-old.
The Tweet, translated from French to English read ‘Bravo Moussa, we are all very proud and happy for you’.
Bravo Moussa, nous sommes tous très fiers et heureux pour toi ? https://t.co/qdUDtT6ev2
