He doesn’t start many games for Tottenham but when he does, Spurs fans always have plenty to say about Moussa Sissoko.
What do you get for £30m and massive wages these days…?
Well in the case of Moussa Sissoko it has been no goals and two assists in six months.
Moussa Sissoko has still only played one full 90 minutes in the Premier League for Tottenham and that came in September against Sunderland at home in a 1-0 win.
Starting only six league matches in total, the last of those back in December, Thursday night saw the French midfielder possibly hit an all-time low (at least for Spurs that is…).
Losing 1-0 to Matz Sels’ old club AA Gent in the Europa League, against a club who are eighth of sixteen in the Belgian league.
Spurs were shocking but Moussa Sissoko was even worse.
After the game, Tottenham fans were quick to thank Newcastle for this dream signing…
Tottenham fans comment on Moussa Sissoko via their top message board TheFightingCock:
‘Literally one of the worst players I’ve ever seen wear our shirt.
We need to cash in on him as soon as that summer transfer window opens, if we can get 12 mill for him I will be over the moon anyone defending him or thinks he can come good is living in a dream world hes awful, we signed him on the basis of 2 good games at the euros.’
‘Well, I honestly didn’t think Sissoko would turn out to be this bad.
He’s a real space case- seems to become lost from the run of play during games. I wonder if he has language/communication issues with our other midfielders?’
‘If there is a language/communication issue I’m afraid that doesn’t affect your ability to make a 5 or 10 yard pass to one of your own players.
He literally can’t get the basics right. No wonder Newcastle were laughing their heads off when we showed interest, that’s one thing but to pay what we did is inexcusable.’
‘We should be shot with sh*t for going anywhere near him, he was complete shi*te at Newcastle for 3 years.
He done a couple of sprints in the Euro’s and we pull out 30 million, jesus. Do we actually scout players ffs?
Hands down the worst signing we’ve ever made, relative to the price.’
‘Sissoko is just sh*t, he’s a f***ing fraud of a player and he should be nowhere near us.’
‘Newcastle really mugged us off eh? Joke of a player.’
‘Sell him in the summer but who would buy him…?’
‘I was defending this guy just a few weeks back.
Get him the f*** out of the club please.’
‘The worst part is all summer long we believed that we couldn’t get this or that player because we believed they’d cost too much only for the club to drop 30m on Moussa Sissoko.
‘Soldado was sh*t once he got to England, of course, but at least spending all that money on him made sense (scored 25+ goals in 3 consecutive seasons).
Why was Sissoko made the club’s record signing? 2 good games for France?’
‘He’s as bad as I thought he’d be. One swallow doesn’t make a summer and certain people were duped by that swallow.
3 seasons in the Premier League is more than enough to gauge him.’
‘The others were all crap tonight as well but this guy just NEVER performs, for whatever reason.
A baffling signing (particularly for that money, and particularly as we must have been VERY keen to nick him off Everton at the last minute.)’
‘We know he’s not sh*te, as he generally played well for Newcastle (often being their stand-out player) and France.’
‘Hmmm, that’s not the opinion my Toon mates have of him.
Turned up once in a blue moon usually when they were on the telly, they seemed to reckon. Couldnt wait to get shot of him.’
