Moussa Sissoko claims he is “very happy” ahead of the Champions League final against Liverpool.


Sissoko has been one of Spurs top performers this season helping the club to unprecedented run to the final of the Champions League.

However, the French midfielder disclosed at Monday’s press conference that he feels pleased with his performances this campaign.

Sissoko had previously struggled to stake a claim in Pochettino’s side but that changed this season as he racked up 29 appearances in the EPL alongside nine games in the Champions League.

He said via SkySports: “Since I came here I always tried to give my best.

“You know the beginning wasn’t easy for me but sometimes when you move teams you need time to adapt with new systems and new players.

“This year has been good and I am very happy with that and I can keep going.”

Ahead of their first Champions League final ever against Liverpool on June 1, Sissoko stated Spurs will try to produce their best game.

“Champions League is another competition and we know Liverpool have had a great season,” he added. “They will be ready for it especially because they lost [in the final] last season.

“But the most important thing is to be thinking of ourselves not too much about the opposition.

“We all need to challenge and we have to give our best and if we do it we can beat any team, in the past, we have shown it.

“Every time we were close to be out but we showed a lot of character to win the game.”
