Sissoko reacts on Twitter to Tottenham return with Watford
Watford ace Moussa Sissoko has taken to Twitter to react to his return to Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.
What’s the story?
Just two days after leaving Spurs for £3m, the France international played against his former club.
Sissoko started for the Hornets in their 1-0 defeat away to the Lilywhites.
Heung-Min Son struck the winner for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side with a long-range free-kick.
On a Twitter post, the 32-year-old thanked the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium faithful for their support. He also claimed the chants when he was getting substituted will resonate with him for a long time.
All in all, the central midfielder made over 200 appearances for Spurs.
Sissoko enjoyed a fruitful career in north London, helping the club reach the Champions League final.
When talking about the Tottenham fans, Sissoko said: “Coming back to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium yesterday was a special moment for me. I spent 5 years at this club and I have only fond memories of it.
“Fan chants will resonate in my head for a long time to come and I have always strived to give you my best. I will never forget you.”
Sissoko enjoyed a mixed spell
Sissoko enjoyed a mixed career with Tottenham amid his Twitter post thanking the fans.
The midfielder started poorly in N17, initially struggling to hold down a place in the side.
However, he soon blossomed into the player the side signed from Newcastle United.
His performances in the 2018/2019 campaign are what helped cement his legacy in Tottenham history.
The run to the Champions League final will live long in the memory. Alongside Harry Winks and Victor Wanyama, the Frenchman was a key cog in Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
But, following his one season of consistency, Sissoko fell away. He was a fraction of the player from 2019 and struggled for large parts of last season.
So, after many ups and downs, it would be fair to describe Sissoko’s career at Tottenham as mixed.
