Moussa Sis­soko must prove worth at Spurs

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -


Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur man­ager Mauri­cio Po­chet­tino has warned French mid­fielder Moussa Sis­soko he must raise his game if he wants to win a place in the first team. Sis­soko joined Spurs from New­cas­tle United in a club record-equalling 30 mil­lion pounds ($37.3 mil­lion, 35.1 mil­lion eu­ros) deal dur­ing the close sea­son. But he has made only four Premier League starts this sea­son and was left out of the squad for Spurs’ last two league games, the lat­est of which was Satur­day’s 2-1 de­feat at Chelsea. “Foot­ball is not about money,” Po­chet­tino said in com­ments pub­lished by Bri­tish news­pa­pers on Mon­day. “You show on the train­ing ground you are bet­ter than an­other team-mate and you de­serve to be in­volved. “I need to take a de­ci­sion and I be­lieve the play­ers that start on the bench de­serve to be in­volved in the game (against Chelsea). It is not an­other thing to fo­cus on.” Sis­soko pub­licly con­tra­dicted Po­chet­tino af­ter Spurs’ Cham­pi­ons League elim­i­na­tion by Monaco, say­ing the club should play their Europa League games at White Hart Lane rather than their tem­po­rary Euro­pean home of Wem­b­ley. —AFP
