For any player to manage 100 games at Tottenham Hotspur is a huge achievement. The Lilywhites are one of England’s biggest and most famous clubs, and Moussa Sissoko has become apart of the side this season, really stepping up with some classy displays, and with yesterday being his 100th the fans have been lauding the Frenchman.

It’s funny how things work. Over the summer transfer window, the Lilywhites were livid when they failed to sign a single player, although looking at it now, the decision not to sign anyone has seen Moussa Sissoko given an extended run in the team, and the Frenchman has shone in ways the fans never believed he ever would, becoming one of the first names on the team sheet as of late.
When Sissoko joined Tottenham in summer 2016 on deadline day, a lot of the Lilywhites wrote him off before he kicked a ball. It may have taken him a while, but the Frenchman is now starting to make those fans eat some humble pie with his displays, and yesterday was yet another one for the ex-Newcastle man to be proud of as he dominated the midfield against Everton and more than played his part as the Lilywhites ran riot in their 6-2 win.
You can read the Lilywhites’ messages for Sissoko here:
Congratulations Moussa on your 100th appearance for the club, you are testament to the phrase of ‘never give up’.
It’s been a joy to watch you grow in a Spurs shirt over the last few months, and I’m so pleased for you personally that you are getting the recognition you deserve.

The Lilywhites have nothing but praise for sublime Sissoko, and they’ll be desperate to see him grab a goal soon to really cap off what has been an incredible end to 2018.
