The Tottenham Hotspur star didn’t have one of his better nights.
It wasn’t a great night for Tottenham Hotspur’s Moussa Sissoko on Monday.
The France international might have started and finished the 1-1 draw at home to Turkey in Euro 2020 qualifying, but the Spurs midfielder struggled.
Sissoko has been nothing short of a monster for Tottenham over the past 12 months after originally struggling to adapt to Mauricio Pochettino’s side following a big-money switch from Newcastle in 2016.
But the 30-year-old posted a performance reminiscent of Sissoko of a previous time last night, with the combativeness and tireless running surprisingly absent from his game.
And fans on Twitter were less than complimentary over his display. Here’s how they reacted:
Ben Yedder? awful. Sissoko? I don’t even have the words to describe how poor he is.— Aubama who? Aubama what? (@alazygooner) October 14, 2019
in any situation, Sissoko will do the wrong pass. Always. Always always always. Unless it’s a back pass. Then it’s perfect. He is the master back passer.#FranceTurquie— Ofthedoor (@Ofthedoor1) October 14, 2019
Antoine Griezmann is utter . And Moussa Sissoko is even worse. If his name wasn’t Griezmann he’d have had the hook by now #FRATUR— Flynn #BacktoJack (@MFlynn1982) October 14, 2019
How is Moussa Sissoko a professional football player?— V (@EchoesOfFooty) October 14, 2019
France have been dreadful. Ben Yedder non existent, Sissoko and a Coman. constantly losing the ball.— . (@clarke1371) October 14, 2019
Not even committing many players forward in attack. Boring

Sissoko is worst, he should have scored 2 goals… The guy be like bouncer— Kay (@amjheffkola) October 14, 2019
I’m watching #FRATUR at the stadium. Pavard and Sissoko are so bad, it’s laughable.— neL (@neLendirekt) October 14, 2019
It hasn’t been a good season for Tottenham as a whole and Sissoko might be simply feeling a bit of a hangover following a dreadful few weeks.
Pochettino’s side lost 7-2 to Bayern Munich and 3-0 at Brighton & Hove Albion in the week before the international break, and such a dismal run of form is bound to sap the players of some morale, too.
Sissoko and Spurs are back in action this weekend when Watford travel across the capital for a London derby.
