Moussa Sissoko has fond memories of his time under Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham.
As he prepares to return to Europe after his success in the Coupe de France, the FC Nantes made a big splash in the transfer market. The Canaries have indeed managed to attract Moussa Sissokoseduced by the Nantes project. “There is a team coming out of a good season, a warm audience, I know I’m going to like it”he explained in the columns of The Team.
Almost ten years later, the former Toulousain is therefore preparing to return to the lawns of Ligue 1. He will meet some familiar faces there but not that of Mauricio Pochettino, thanked by PSG. Pointed out in the capital, the Argentine technician keeps a good side with his former players at Tottenham.
“He is the coach with whom I have learned the most technically, tactically, even mentally, with whom my game has evolved the most, assured the native of Blanc-Mesnil. I had arrived in a team that was performing, in a less attacking role than at Newcastle. I didn’t get my place right away, but he encouraged perseverance. We didn’t miss much to win titles, we had the team for it. We still had some very good times, especially the journey to the Champions League final. »
