Newcastle fans react to Moussa Sissoko’s dreadful performance in the north London derby

Premiership Picks

Having signed from Ligue 1 Toulouse back in January 2013, Moussa Sissoko enjoyed a rather mixed career at Newcastle.

The powerful Frenchman showed glimpses of being a truly dominant central midfielder, and there were some comparisons to Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira for some of his marauding displays.

Following the Magpies’ relegation, Sissoko joined Tottenham on deadline day in 2016, but has struggled to really establish himself in Mauricio Pochettino’s first-team.

The 30-year-old played for Spurs in the north London derby against Arsenal on Sunday and would have hoped to put on a good show, but ended up having a miserable afternoon.

The Frenchman committed three fouls and completed just 76.3% of his total passes, whilst his stand-out memory from the game will be wildly blazing over a decent chance in the closing stages.

After seeing Sissoko’s performance, Newcastle fans flooded to Twitter to share their thoughts on their former charge.

Many supporters of the Tyneside club questioned how they had managed to fleece Spurs out of £30m for him, and insisted it was “daylight robbery”.

Some Magpies fans suggested the 30-year-old has gotten even worse in his time in north London, and claimed it is a “mystery” that he is still in Pochettino’s squad.

Check out some of the savage reaction of Newcastle fans below:
