The former Newcastle United star struggled massively when he first signed two years ago for £30 million (BBC Sport), but has turned things around in a remarkable way.

Sissoko took full advantage of an injury to former midfielder Mousa Dembele before Christmas.

Eric Dier was also out of the picture after having had surgery to remove his appendix.

Spurs are currently gearing up for the Champions League final against Liverpool on Saturday, but in training club legends such as Graham Roberts, Micky Hazard and Ossie Ardiles surprised Sissoko with a special Player of the Season award to put his renaissance into perspective.

Tottenham fans react

Tottenham’s Twitter post showing the presentation of the award received hundreds of responses, with fans eager to praise the £80,000-a-week (Spotrac) ace for his amazing contributions in 2018/19:
