Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Moussa Sissoko has managed to completely turn his Tottenham career around for the better this season.
From being viewed as a scapegoat and laughing stock by many fans last season, the Frenchman has now become one of Tottenham’s most important players.
With Mousa Dembele leaving the club in January, and with the likes of Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama having lengthy injury layoffs this season, Sissoko has stepped up and taken the mantle in the middle of the park.
He has shown unbelievable energy levels this season by tracking back and helping win the ball in defence, and also going on powerful forward runs with the ball.
The midfielder was once again at his best yesterday afternoon when he helped Tottenham to a comfortable 4-0 win against Huddersfield at the new stadium.
After the game, Sissoko talked in glowing terms about the feeling of playing at the new stadium, and also said that he wished to stay at Spurs for a long time.
According to Football.London, Sissoko said, “The new stadium is probably the best I have played in. Everything they have done in it is phenomenal.
“With the noise like it was on Tuesday night. it’s not easy to talk to each other on the pitch but as a player, that’s what you like, that’s what you want.
“You know when you come on the pitch, to have noise like that with the fans singing from the warm-ups to the end of the game, I think that is an unbelievable thing and every player wants to have that kind of atmosphere every week.
“So, we have to enjoy every moment like that and try to do well together. I’m very happy to be part of this project and play in his stadium, hopefully for a long time to come.”
