Moussa Sissoko sends Twitter message to Newcastle fans, comments on 'hard situation'

Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko has taken to Twitter to discuss the club's recent struggles.

Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko has told Magpies fans via his Twitter account that he is trying to help the club turn around a poor run of form.

The Magpies have now lost their last five games, and as if last week's defeat at the hands of North East rivals Sunderland wasn't bad enough, they also lost against Liverpool on Monday.

A 2-0 defeat at Anfield means interim manager John Carver has now won just two of his 14 games in charge, and his misery on Merseyside was compounded by a late red card to midfielder Sissoko for a challenge on Liverpool's Lucas Leiva.

Sissoko, 25, is currently in a poor run of form himself, which comes just a matter of months after he admitted that he would be interested in joining Premier League rivals Arsenal, as reported by Sky Sports in January.

Fans are hopeful that Sissoko will stay, but the Frenchman's recent displays have soured his season - especially after that red card against Liverpool.

Now, Sissoko has taken to Twitter to admit that he's aware of the 'hard situation' at St. James' Park right now, whilst he also moved to reassure Magpies fans that he and his team mates are trying their utmost to snap this bad run of results.

Newcastle have struggled ever since Alan Pardew's departure to Crystal Palace in January, with Carver seemingly out of his depth in the Premier League - and with just six games to play, Newcastle fans are just wanting the season to end as soon as possible.
