Moussa Sissoko has been injured ever since early January when he underwent knee surgery, and so far he has missed a total of ten games for Tottenham Hotspur.
But there were some good news for Jose Mourinho and his troops on Friday as Alasdair Gold delivered a big update on the 30-year-old’s current recovery process.
The midfielder is reportedly set to start his on-field rehabilitation in a major update for the dynamic French midfielder .
And many of the fans were over the moon with the positive news, calling him a beast and a warrior in the process…

And since both Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son are also currently unavailable to Mourinho and Spurs, it’s fair to say there is a sparsity of quality, senior options at the manager’s disposal.
With that said, it’s no surprise fans were so buzzing about the update.
Given the club’s recent issues in the centre-forward department, some supporters suggested that Sissoko’s return could be the solution they’ve been waiting for.
Sissoko up front! We could do worse?! May not be a finisher, but I get he could hold the ball up for Bergwijn, Lucas and Dele!

But of course, there were also fans who weren’t in any way thrilled by the update, perhaps suggesting they’re not huge fans of the former Newcastle midfielder.
That doesn’t reassure me.
