Latest French Interview – Moussa Sissoko blames Newcastle United for no transfer yet

5 years ago

In yet another interview in France, Moussa Sissoko has blamed Newcastle United for the fact that he is still stuck on Tyneside.

Speaking to L’Equipe Magazine, our ‘superstar’ accuses NUFC of ‘overdoing it’ when it comes to their demands.

Moussa Sissoko claims Newcastle are pricing him out of the market and that is why he hasn’t got his dream move.

Pointing out that Newcastle United paid out only around £1.5m for him in January 2013, Sissoko says that now asking for 40m euros (approx £34m) isn’t playing fair.

Maybe if Moussa Sissoko was anywhere near as good as he thinks he is, then in this ridiculously over-inflated transfer market, somebody WOULD have snapped him up at that price.

The French international also reveals that he is training away from the main group of players, apart from warm-up exercises by the sounds of it.

Yet another reason surely as to why there can’t be any way that Moussa Sissoko will still be here in a week’s time.

Just what would the Newcastle squad make of Sissoko after he has shown so little professionalism in his desperation to get away from them and the situation NUFC find themselves in?

Translation from L’Equipe Magazine by GFFN:

“It is true that since I came back from my holiday at the beginning of August, I have trained again with Newcastle, but as I am supposed to leave, I am training a little away from the squad.

“Sometimes I am with them (first team squad) for smaller exercises, but for the important sessions, I am not there…

“Newcastle are asking for 40m euros (approx £34m) for me to be transferred.

“Honestly, they are overdoing it, they bought me for barely €2m – That is why things are taking longer.”
