Since joining Tottenham for £30 million last summer, equalling the club’s record transfer fee, it’s fair to say Moussa Sissoko has struggled to adapt to life at White Hart Lane.
The former Newcastle midfielder has come under criticism from fans and his manager for falling short of expectations after his big money move.
Spurs knew they had a good player on their hands if Sissoko could replicate his form for the French national team at Euro 2016, but the 27-year-old has started just 10 times this season and has failed to make much on an impression.
Those failings have provoked speculation about his future, but Sissoko told beIN SPORTS: “My future is at Tottenham and I’m trying to give my best. I’m trying to learn because I have to get used to a new style of playing in a new team.” (Quotes translated by ESPN).
Perhaps Spurs simply need to find his best position; Sissoko has been moved around the pitch often this term, but it’s unlikely he will displace any of the current starting eleven in the near future.
