Tottenham Hotspur’s star midfielder Moussa Sissoko has revealed that he is fit and ready to return to action.
The 30-year-old suffered a serious injury during the North London-based club’s 1-0 win over Southampton in the Premier League clash on January 1st, 2020.
It was first expected that Sissoko will miss at least four months of action due to the injury but the central midfielder, while talking to Spurs’ official website, revealed that he was ready to return to action in the month of March before footballing activities came to a standstill due to ongoing coronavirus crisis.
“At the beginning it wasn’t easy,” he said.
“First of all, it was my first big injury since I played football but after, you need to accept that and try to do everything to come back as soon as possible.
“I was ready to come back in March but the virus came so I had to stay out of training like everyone, but at the same time it was good because I had more time to recover and to work even more to be fit.
“Now, since we’ve come back, I’m feeling very well, I don’t have any pain so I’m ready to go again, to compete and play games.”
“You realise when you are playing and training that you are lucky, because you can do what you like the most in your life. When you’re out, it’s difficult to see people training, to see people playing games and you want to be part of it, but you can’t.”
Sissoko has been with Spurs since the summer of 2016 when he moved from Newcastle United.
Since then, the versatile midfielder has represented his current club in 151 matches in all competitions where he has four goals and 15 assists to his name.
In the ongoing campaign, Sissoko has featured regularly as he has two goals and two assists to his name in 26 matches.
Tottenham’s midfield dynamic is something that Jose Mourinho needs to address, but the consensus is that the unit is improved by Sissoko’s presence.
