Sherwood hails Tottenham’s Sissoko for recent form

Former Tottenham Hotspur boss Tim Sherwood has admitted that he is not the biggest fan of Moussa Sissoko, but has said that the Frenchman is ‘the most improved player’ at the club.

Tottenham beat Everton to the signature of Sissoko in 2016, with the midfielder leaving Newcastle United following three years at St James’ Park.

Sissoko struggled for consistency during his first couple of seasons at Tottenham, but has developed into a key player this term.

Indeed, the 29-year-old has started each of Tottenham’s last six Premier League matches, and also impressed against Inter Milan in the Champions League during the week.

Sherwood has paid tribute to Sissoko’s improvement ahead of Tottenham’s trip to Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.

Sherwood told Sky Sports:

“Sissoko is not my favourite player, but they sung his name the other night against Inter Milan. He is the most improved player they have got at the football club.”

Sissoko, who is also back in favour with France after being left out of the squad for the 2018 World Cup, has a contract with Tottenham until the end of the 2020-21 campaign.
