‘He is the best one’ – Moussa Sissoko names just one Spurs star in dream five-a-side team

Watford midfielder Moussa Sissoko has named Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris in his dream five-a-side team. 

The 32-year-old joined the Hornets last summer and immediately earned a starting place for the Hertfordshire-based side after a strong start, followed by the captain’s armband.

However, the Watford skipper could not inspire the side to survive relegation as they dropped down into the Championship under Roy Hodgson’s watch. 

With the club set to be playing tier two football next season, it is likely that Sissoko will be one of a host of names heading towards the exit at Vicarage Road (Watford Observer). 

But while he is still on Watford’s books, Sissoko spoke with the club for a light-hearted feature which required him to pick his ideal five-a-side squad. 

He trusted French compatriot and former Tottenham teammate Lloris to hold a place in goal after spending five years in North London with the 35-year-old. 

Sissoko told Watford’s media team: “In goal, it will be Hugo Lloris. I played with him in the national team and at Spurs. For me, he is the best one.”

Alongside Lloris, Sissoko picked former Toulouse teammate Cheick M’Bengue as his lone defender before picking a midfield tandem of N’Golo Kante and Andres Iniesta. 

He then completed his squad with Karim Benzema and claimed the Real Madrid striker has a good chance of winning this season’s Ballon d’Or, after helping Los Blancos earn a 14th Champions League title with a 1-0 win over Liverpool.

Sissoko spent quite a long time at Spurs and he joined and left the club with his compatriot Lloris being ever-present in goal. 

This did seem like a pretty easy choice for Sissoko given the pair were teammates for a while and also had points where they were in the France squad together.
