Mauricio Pochettino's men suffered a 2-0 loss to Liverpool in Madrid on a night where neither side could produce the kind of performance that saw them book their place in the final in the first place.
Many will point to the penalty decision inside the first 30 seconds as a key moment in defining how the majority of the game played out. Once Liverpool got in front, they seemed to be content to let Spurs control the game until they edged towards the final third.
But while it was Sissoko who was penalised for handling Sadio Mane's attempted cross, there do not appear to be any Tottenham fans placing any blame at the Frenchman's door.
It looked to be an incredibly harsh decision to give the penalty. And while some pundits and former footballers have suggested that the referee made the right call, the majority appear to have criticised the decision.
So when Sissoko sent a message on social media in response to the result, it was no surprise that most of the supporters only had positive things to say about the midfielder after an outstanding campaign.
Here is Sissoko's tweet, as well as the responses from Roberts and some of the fans...
Disappointed to not bringing the Cup to Tottenham. We gave everything, but the sport is sometimes cruel. We have to accept it and work to come back stronger.— Moussa Sissoko (@MoussaSissoko) June 2, 2019
I'm very proud of my teammates and our season.
We remain motivated to win trophies.
