Jose Mourinho does not believe that Moussa Sissoko has been playing in the right position


Tottenham Hotspur purchased Moussa Sissoko from Newcastle after an impressive Euros campaign with France, in which he played as a winger.

However, after flopping in North London for well over a year, Mauricio Pochettino decided to redesign the Frenchman as a holding midfield player, capable of bursting through the lines.

Since then, Sissoko has been one of the first names on the team sheet, a fan favourite, and perhaps the most consistent Spurs player in the team.

Despite this success in the centre of midfield, Sissoko’s role in the Tottenham squad may be about to change yet again under the new manager.

Jose Mourinho has now revealed that he does not see Sissoko as a central midfielder but as a right-sided attacker, as he played against Bournemouth last week.

To be fair to the new gaffer, Sissoko did score his first goal in over 90 games in this match, so perhaps he is on to something.
