Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter have been sharing their criticism for Lilywhites midfielder Moussa Sissoko and his performance during the north London club’s recent 3-1 defeat against Manchester United in the Premier League.
Despite Heung-min Son opening the scoring for the home side, three second-half goals from Fred, Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood secured the win for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
During the second half of the match, Spurs boss Jose Mourinho chose to send on Sissoko for Giovani Lo Celso, but despite only being on the pitch for a 30-minute period, the Frenchman’s efforts during that time did not go down too well with a number of Spurs fans who were not shy in sharing their thoughts on Twitter.
So, what did these Spurs fans have to say about Sissoko’s performance against United and Mourinho’s decision to sub him on?
“Sissoko is very useless”
“Anyone tell me what Sissoko has done since coming on? Shell of a player and an awful decision to bring him on”
“We lost the game when it was 1-1 and Jose brings on Sissoko for Lo Celso.”
“I beg if Mourinho leaves he takes Sissoko with him”
“Sissoko’s real lack of quality costing Spurs another game. Beyond me how he is a professional EPL player.”
“Not watching another game as long as Sissoko is part of this club. The worst player in our history”
“Sissoko absolutely can not play for us ever again, the bloke is a disgrace”
“Still blows my mind that Moussa Sissoko is a professional footballer”
“Sissoko has been pathetic. Has done nothing but foul and lose possession #joseout #ENICOut”
Looking at these tweets from this group of Spurs fans, it’s clear to see that they were not happy with what Sissoko had to offer on the pitch when he came on, or the fact that Mourinho brought him on in the first place.
Do you think Mourinho was right to bring Sissoko on during the second half?
With Football.London giving the 31-year-old, who is currently valued at £11.7 million, a match rating of 5/10 for his cameo performance, saying that he “came on to try to help Spurs regain control of the midfield but he didn’t and they couldn’t,” just goes to show how little of an impact he made on the match and why these fans were not happy about it.
