Moussa Sissoko ‘Newcastle won’t let me go’

5 years ago

Moussa Sissoko has declared that he won’t be leaving Newcastle United this month.

The midfielder repeating what he said in the summer, when he stated that there had been interest but the club wouldn’t let him leave.

The clear implication back then was there was some kind of unwritten agreement that Moussa Sissoko and Newcastle would part company after the 2016 Euros in his home country.

Giving his latest interview over on France, Sissoko told ‘Telefoot’ that leaving only a few months before those Euros wouldn’t be an ideal scenario either.

This weekend had seen continued claims of interest from Serie A leader Napoli, with reports that Newcastle had turned down a bid and the Italian club are expected to come in with a higher one.

Not exactly giving the most resounding reasons for still being at St James Park, Moussa Sissoko told Telefoot ‘…our results have been bad but I get to play every weekend and to perform well’.

Making him sound more like a 26 year old bloke who finds himself still living with his parents, because it is a bit too much of an effort to try and make the break, plus his mam does his washing and serves up his meals.

Moussa Sissoo talking to Telefoot and reported by Get French Football News:

“I am not thinking about leaving Newcastle.

“They will not let me go.

“And then I ask myself the question about the timing, just a few months ahead of the Euros.

“Certainly, our results have been bad but I get to play every weekend and to perform well.”
