'Please leave, please' - Tottenham fans react to Sissoko Twitter message after win v Leicester
By Will Butcher
Moussa Sissoko came in for some stick on Twitter from Tottenham fans after posting a verdict on the thrashing of Leicester on Thursday night.
Spurs smashed last season’s Premier League champions 6-1 at the King Power Stadium, with Harry Kane scoring four to leapfrog Romelu Lukaku in the race for the golden boot.
France international Sissoko described the performance as “amazing” on his personal Twitter account and thanked fans for their support during the rout away from home.

Sissoko made just his 12th start of the season in all competitions for Spurs, and lasted the entire 90 minutes during the clash as South Korea international Son Heung-Min also scored twice.
Spurs’ number 17, Sissoko, has found the going tough since his £30million move from Newcastle last summer, with competition in the likes of Son, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen proving too much.

Tottenham fans reacted to his post by telling the former Toulouse ace to leave this summer, while some have criticised the attacker’s performance.
A few fans were more supportive, with one saying he wanted Sissoko to stay and prove himself next season.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

It remains to be seen if Sissoko will stay at Spurs ahead of next season, with Pochettino likely to make changes to his squad ahead of another Premier League push and Champions League campaign.
