Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Moussa Sissoko has been discussing his strengths as a player after recently showing his best run of form whilst at the club.
The French international has regularly been the focal point of frustration among the Spurs fanbase since his then club record £30million switch from Newcastle United in the summer of 2016.
Sissoko believes that he is now starting to prove his doubters wrong with his performances during the early part of this season.
Mauricio Pochettino has always had faith in Sissoko, having played him in 47 of Tottenham’s 55 matches last season when many fans were hoping instead he would be sold during the summer.
Sissoko, in turn, has stated that he continues to try and deliver what his manager expects of him and is focused on further improvement.
Arguably, his best performance of the season came in the 1-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Premier League at Wembley on Monday of last week.
“I’m feeling good. I had a strong pre-season, everything went well. I was excited to play the first game of the season against Newcastle and it was even better because we got the win,” said Sissoko in an interview in Spurs’ matchday programme as quoted by Football.London.
“But after that I had an injury with my hamstring so I worked hard to get back and then went and suffered the same injury again, so I was off for a few more weeks. But I came back again and returned stronger.
“My last few games have been good. I always say that when I get on the pitch I want to give my best. Sometimes that happens and sometimes it doesn’t for different reasons.
“It’s gone right for me recently. Being able to get the assist for Erik’s winner against West Ham was great. I was proud of that because when you have that involvement in a goal it’s a good feeling.”
