Moussa Sissoko has given yet another French media interview, this time to radio station RMC, claiming that Jose Mourinho is monitoring his progress.

The Newcastle midfielder always wants it both ways and does say that he happy at Newcastle though…

Sissoko also says that he would be ecstatic if Patrick Vieira became Head Coach/Manager…but also appreciates John Carver!

Moussa Sissoko:

“I am still at Newcastle and I feel good there, there’s no problem.

“If I am to move, then the French national team will be part of my thinking and as for Champions League football – all players dream of playing in this competition and I hope to participate in it one day but I’m patient, waiting for my time.”

Jose Mourinho:

“Is he (Jose Mourinho) following my progress? According to what I am hearing, the answer is yes.

“He is one of the best managers in the world and he he’s won so many titles – any player would love to be coached by this man….for the moment I’m coached by other people but if one day I have the chance to work under his guidance, then I would be very happy.”

Patrick Vieira:

“If he (Vieira) comes to Newcastle then I would be very happy as he was a role model for me, playing in the same position as I do.

“He helped me to learn to try and be the best. At the moment the manager is still John Carver, even if the second half of our season was difficult, he’s someone who I do appreciate.”
