Tottenham Hotspur star, Moussa Sissoko, has had an incredible second-wind at the club over the past couple of years.
When Spurs first signed the Frenchman as a right midfielder from Newcastle United, the fans failed to take to him and Sissoko himself failed to take to the pitch.
When Pochettino would substitute him on, the stadium would be filled with frustrated groans. However, two years on and Sissoko is now one of the first names on the team sheet.
He managed to turn his Spurs career around in the space of one season, switching to central midfield and using his strength and power to show his worth.
However, one element Sissoko has still not been able to add to his game is an end product in the final third.
If the Frenchman goes through on goal, you can be sure it’s going anywhere but the back of the net.
Sissoko admitted in a recent interview that he is jealous of new boy Tanguy Ndombele after he managed to outscore him in his first match (Tottenham).
“How was it to score on your Premier League debut? I’m jealous of you. I’ve been trying to score for some time but the moment hasn’t arrived yet.
“It was good,” Ndombele responded. “I was very happy I didn’t really have time to savour the moment because we were 1-0 down. But it was good to score in my first league match with my new team.”
