Moussa Sissoko played 90 minutes on Wednesday night – and Tottenham fans were furious with his performance.
The 27-year-old was recalled to the side for the European match with Bayer Leverkusen, with the midfielder currently serving a three-game domestic suspension for elbowing Bournemouth’s Harry Arter.
Spurs suffered a 1-0 defeat against Leverkusen in their Champions League group stage match at Wembley, with Kevin Kampl scoring the decisive goal in the second-half.
The result leaves the north London club third-placed in their group and currently occupying a Europa League spot.
Spurs supporters were angry with Sissoko’s display against Leverkusen and feel he is yet to settle at White Hart Lane.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Sissoko moved to White Hart Lane in the summer for £30million and has added depth to Mauricio Pochettino’s midfield.
The former Toulouse midfielder starred at Euro 2016 for France as his country reached the final in front of their own fans before losing 2-0 to Portugal.
However, Sissoko is yet to reach the heights of those performances that had seen him linked to Spanish giants Real Madrid during the summer.
He has made nine appearances across all competitions and is yet to register a goal or an assist.
Pochettino does have several midfield options he could use instead of Sissoko including the likes of Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela, Georges-Kevin N’Koudou and Heung-Min Son.
