Some intriguing quotes have come out from Moussa Sissoko’s ‘advisor’ in the French press where he allegedly claims that the midfielder feels like shit and is in conflict with Mauricio Pochettino.
Sissoko moved to Tottenham for a club record £30million transfer fee just hours before the summer transfer window closed last year and has done absolutely nothing in his first year at the club.
The French international has mostly found himself on the bench and even when he has been called upon, he has been disappointing to the huge frustration of the Tottenham fanbase who are already hoping that he is sold this summer.
Somehow he has managed to keep his involvement in the French national team for whom he seems to on occasion offer more than he has done in a Spurs shirt.
His adviser, Badr Slassi, has been quoted in French newspaper L’Equipe as saying: “The Euro blew it up and his transfer was difficult because he was late, he arrived in Tottenham when the preparation was over and the Championship had started [three days before].
“He quickly found himself in a position where he did not play, which he is not used to. It was not a problem of [choice of] club, it just got tired.”
He added: “He is not in emotional conflict with his coaches, anyway, only in the professional way.
“Never will you hear him complain. But he is a force of nature, and it makes him feel like s***, to say the words, not to be able to express himself: he loves the club, the supporters, the infrastructure. he therefore experienced this as a frustration in Tottenham.”
