Moussa Sissoko has arguably been Tottenham Hotspur’s player of the season in the opinion of many fans this season.
In that first campaign in north London, Sissoko made just eight starts in the league for Spurs, scoring no goals. Before long, he was written off by many sections of the supporters as an expensive flop.
The midfielder has shown fantastic perseverance and determination to turn his fortunes around at the club following two difficult seasons following his then club record £30million transfer from Newcastle United (BBC).
Sissoko has taken full advantage of the opportunity to play in the central midfield role following the sale of Mousa Dembele, along with injuries to the likes of Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama.
The 29-year-old appeared as a guest on this evening’s French TV football show Canal Football Club alongside Spurs team-mate Serge Aurier.
Sissoko was asked about his future at Tottenham and admitted that he is happy at the club.
He said: “Today I feel good over there, this year everything is going well for me. I am still under contract with them so all is good. But as he (Aurier) said, and you know it better than me, anything can happen in football very quickly.”
When asked whether his future in N17 is dependent on whether Mauricio Pochettino remains at the club, Sissoko made a worrying suggestion that Daniel Levy could decide that a new manager could replace Pochettino.
He added: “Not necessarily, I don’t know. At the end of the season, it could be that they have a new project, that a new coach comes, and he doesn’t count on me, he wants to sell me. Many different things could happen. But for the moment I feel good there, I am happy there. And in my head I have no thoughts of leaving.”

While Sissoko is only speculating about what could happen with Pochettino, it is certainly worrying that one of his players would currently entertain the notion that the Argentine may not be at the club next season. Daniel Levy needs to do everything in his power to keep Pochettino happy.
