Pochettino to meet with midfielder over his future


Mauricio Pochettino must look back on last summer with a twinge of regret.

For all Tottenham’s transfer business, Victor Wanyama is the only signing who has made much impact at all.

Georges-Kevin N’Koudou and Vincent Janssen have both had few minutes on the pitch.

The most bizarre acquisition of all was that of Moussa Sissoko from Newcastle in a £30million deal.

The Frenchman has shown virtually nothing to indicate that he is worth that kind of money, starting just six times in the Premier League.

Of course, that would suggest that Pochettino hasn’t given him much of an opportunity, but the 27-year-old hasn’t done much to prove he deserves it.


According to L’Equipe, Sissoko will sit down with the club in April, the likely outcome being that he’ll be sold at the end of a forgettable season.

Unsurprisingly, he has been dropped from Didier Deschamps’ most recent France squad for the games against Luxembourg and Spain.

That will have made his situation at Spurs all the more pressing, and it looks best for both parties that they cut their losses in the summer.

    Sissoko needs to focus on more than self-image and status. Any chance to play that leads to him working hard, making good decisions on the field and also delivering precise passes, and he’ll be so respected for his performances that his status will be guaranteed. He’s a good player who finds himself in the same Spurs squad as other good players. He should stop standing outside himself and looking in, and instead just get involved in what the club with a squad can achieve.
