Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter were geed up by comments from France international midfielder Moussa Sissoko on Tuesday evening.
"We spent a good time all together (last week), trying to refresh the mind. Now most of the players are with their national teams and hopefully we can come back and be ready to finish the season well."

The quote was posted by the club’s official account on the social media platform and centred around how Spurs players want to come back from the international break “ready to finish the season well.”
This comes after a horrendous run of form for the Lilywhites prior to a 22-day break from action for the FA Cup and then the international break, which saw them lose three in four Premier League matches and pick up no wins.
The reaction from supporters of the north London club to the comments has been rallying, with one writing “No excuses, you’ve only got yourselves to blame for the position we’re in, now put it right.”
Meanwhile, others have focused their attention on Sissoko himself, thanking him for all of his hard work recently and urging him to save his energy for domestic matters, the 55-cap midfielder currently being away with France on international duty.
