Pochettino ‘Fed Up’ With Below Par Sissoko

By Adebayo Williams

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has voiced out his frustration with Moussa Sissoko’s disappointing time at White Hart Lane. The Argentine tactician, who was on the losing side at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, said the French midfielder had been underwhelming since his arrival from Newcastle in the summer. Pochettino said the player’s performances left much to be desired of a £30 million signing.

Speaking on why the player was left off the team that played at Chelsea, the former Southampton boss said the player had been in perfect physical condition but was kept off the team because of his disappointing showings since he joined the North London side.

Sissoko had been a part of the side that was beaten by Monaco in the Champions League. The midfielder had told reporters that the team would be better off playing at White Hart Lane rather  than Wembley. His comments angered Pochettino who said in another interview that it was better for players to concentrate on improving their game than complaining about the quality of pitch.

”The players need to be focused on playing, to talk on the pitch,” he said.

The player has been struggling to find form since his big money move from Newcastle. He has made only five appearances for the Spurs.
