Speaking to SFR Sport, France manager Didier Deschamps explained his liking for Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko.
“One just has to look at the Euro final to see what he is capable of. Aside from that, if you are going to ask him to do what Kylian Mbappé or Kingsley Coman does, he is a completely different player. I like him, he is not my teacher’s pet, but I would say that Moussa is the prototype of a soldier, he has gone from Toulouse to working under Pochettino, even if with the latter it was initially a little difficult. He does not complain, whether he plays 2 minutes, 10 minutes, 20 minutes or starts the match… He is very well liked by his team-mates and feared by his opponents.”
