Chimbonda delivers six-word reaction as Tottenham sell Sissoko to Watford

Moussa Sissoko has completed a permanent move from Tottenham to Watford – and Pascal Chimbonsa has responded with a six-word verdict.

Sissoko, 32, ends a five-year stint at Tottenham in which the 71-time France international clocked up a huge 202 appearances in all competitions.

But the ex-Newcastle man has fallen way down the pecking order in recent months. Oliver Skipp, Dele Alli and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg are first choice.

Given he was on a hefty contract until the summer of 2023, Fabio Paratici has decided to cash in. He has been sold to Watford for £3million (PA).

Tottenham posted a touching farewell message to Sissoko on Instagram, after the Frenchman’s Spurs exit had been confirmed by the club.

Ultimately, it was inevitable that Sissoko would have to leave. Penning a four-year deal that was going to take him up until he was 32 was strange.

What is almost as strange, though, is that Tottenham have not decided to delay a move until after Sunday’s clash against Sissoko’s new side.

Watford have pushed a deal through in time for Sissoko to immediately face his old teammates. Spurs already have their replacement through the door.

Pape Sarr joins on a permanent basis from French side Metz, but the teenage midfielder will remain in Ligue 1 for the 21-22 campaign.

Chimbonda is not particularly happy at the exit of Sissoko. Responding to Tottenham’s post, he delivered a six-word verdict.
