Moussa Sissoko sends message to Tottenham fans after Leicester demolition
By Amir Mir
Moussa Sissoko has hailed the team performance from Tottenham after they beat Leicester City 6-1 on Thursday night.
The 27-year-old also thanked the Spurs fans for their support following their demolition job at the King Power Stadium.
Sissoko was given a rare start by his manager Mauricio Pochettino, the sixth Premier League match he has started this term.
During the match, he picked up a yellow card and was taken off towards the end for his fellow attacker Georges-Kevin Nkoudou.
This was Sissoko’s message to the White Hart Lane faithful after Tottenham secured all three points in the penultimate match of the season.

Sissoko had one meaningful shot on goal during the match but failed to inspire his team in the attacking third.
That inspiration was left down to the club’s academy product, Harry Kane, who struck four goals during the match.
Spurs opened the scoring after 25 minutes when Kane slotted home Son Heung-Min’s cross from the right-hand side.
Son then got in on the action and converted a brilliant chip from Dele Alli before Hugo Lloris’ mistake in the second half led to the home team pulling a goal back.
Pochettino’s side then scored four goals in the second half with Kane scoring three of those goals which means he now leads the goalscoring charts in the Premier League.
He is two ahead of Everton striker Romelu Lukaku going into the final day of the Premier League season.
