Tottenham suffered a massive blow a few days ago when they received news on midfielder Moussa Sissoko’s injury.
The club confirmed that the 30-year-old had undergone surgery to the medial collateral ligament in his right knee after sustaining an injury in the game against Southampton two weeks ago.
It was revealed that Sissoko is not expected to return to training until April, news which absolutely devastated some Spurs fans.
The midfielder has featured regularly under Jose Mourinho, just as he did under his predecessor and will thus be a huge loss for the Lilywhites.
This news further exacerbates Spurs’ injury woes with the likes of Harry Kane, Ben Davies, Hugo Lloris, Danny Rose and Tanguy Ndombele all missing recent matches with injuries.
Sissoko took to social media to thank the fans for the messages of support he received and assured them that he is doing all that he can to return to fitness as soon as possible.
In a Twitter post, the Frenchman posted a picture of himself wearing a cast on his right leg. The post read, “I am touched but not shot. It is in difficult times that we need to put things in perspective the most to overcome the trials. Thank you for your messages of support and with God’s help, I will be back soon.”
Je suis touché mais pas abattu💪🏿. C’est dans les moments difficiles qu’il faut relativiser le plus pour surmonter les épreuves.
Merci pour vos message de soutien et avec l’aide de Dieu, je reviens bientôt 🤙🏿. pic.twitter.com/VrleFlDIQK

The injury to Sissoko really is a massive blow as he gives balance to the system we are employing. His fantastic energy levels enable him to break forward from his midfield pivot position while also falling back to cover. It is now imperative that we sign a central midfielder in January even if it is just a loan deal.
