Tottenham midfielder, Moussa Sissoko, has said that the future for the club is with Jose Mourinho, despite the excellent job done previously by Mauricio Pochettino.
The French midfielder has enjoyed a good season this time around for Spurs. After struggling to adapt following a big-money move from Newcastle, Sissoko appears to now be settled in London.
And speaking to French outlet, Europe 1, Sissoko insists the club can still achieve success this season and that Mourinho is indeed the right man.
“We’re happy with Mourinho. He brought a new freshness,” Sissoko said.
“We aren’t going to spit on what Pochettino did, he brought the club to a new level, but now our future is José Mourinho.”
Spurs have suffered a dip in form this term and prior to the season shutting down were clinging onto their Champions League hopes by the skin of their teeth.
However, despite sitting 8th and seven points off Chelsea in fourth, Sissoko believes Spurs can close the gap.
“We have objectives, fourth place is still doable. We’re going to do everything,” the Frenchman added.
The energetic midfielder has made 20 Premier League appearances this term. If and when the season returns, Sissoko will be looking to use that energy to drive his team towards an end of season flourish.

There’s still something very disjointed about this Spurs squad under Mourinho.
On their day, they look as good as any team in the league. But when they are off it, they seem to be capable of being beaten by even the poorest of sides.
Granted, injuries have played a massive part. However, there does already seem to be an element of tension between some players and Jose Mourinho.
That needs to change. Like Sissoko, Spurs need all their players believing in their manager.
