Is Moussa Sissoko the most divisive figure in the Premier League right now?
The Frenchman’s blockbuster arrival at Tottenham Hotspur on Deadline Day has sparked debate amongst the Spurs supporting locals in the Transfer Tavern, to say the least.
Quite frankly dreadful for most of the season with Newcastle United last season, the 27-year-old put himself firmly in the shop window over the course of the summer after a series of dynamic performances for France at Euro 2016.
While his performances fluctuate enough to raise doubt amongst the White Hart Lane frequenters in this evening, his previous comments about Arsenal have barely cast him in good light.
Back in June, Foot Mercato aired quotes from the then-Newcastle United ace, ones in which he appeared to heap praise on the club’s fierce North London rivals.
Reportedly describing the Gunners as ‘beautiful’, it promises to be a difficult start to life on Hotspur Way for the powerhouse, who certainly has it all to prove.
Well, a photo has emerged that is likely to make his start even harder.
Posted by Twitter user @NUFC_Online a few days ago, it appears to show Sissoko reaching for an Arsenal shirt from a wardrobe.
While he must do his talking on the pitch, it has only muddied the waters even further for the Tottenham fans in this evening, who haven’t reacted too well.
Will Sissoko be a success for Spurs? Let us know below…
