Moussa Sissoko’s transformation at Tottenham has been one of the stories of the club’s season, perhaps the only thing eclipsing it is reaching a Champions League final.
Spurs will face Liverpool in the European final after they produced a stunning second-half comeback to knockout Ajax in the semi-finals on away goals.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side scored three times in the second-half to qualify and Lucas Moura netted all three goals to cement his hero status.
But in the heart of midfield Sissoko once again produced a European masterclass.
The 29-year-old covered every blade of grass and his powerful attacking running with the powerful was too much for Ajax to handle.
He’s played a vital role in Spurs’ route to the final with some key contributions and was once again one of the standout players.
According to an Evening Standard reported in April, Spurs would consider offloading Sissoko in the summer if an appropriate bid arrived for him.
But it would be foolish for Spurs to allow the exit of the £80,000-a-week ace (Spotrac) given his importance.
Sissoko has grown into a key player following a tough start in North London and it’s hard to imagine him not in the team going into next season.
