Moussa Sissoko need to do extra to show he deserves his Tottenham spot, manager Mauricio Pochettino said.
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has been disappointed by club record-signing Moussa Sissoko, challenging the midfielder to show he deserves a spot(click fut 17 coins).
Sissoko, 27, joined Tottenham in a deal reportedly worth ￡30million from Newcastle United in August.
However the France international has created just six Premier League appearances – four of those starts – this season.
Pochettino, whose team suffered a 2-1 loss to London rivals Chelsea on Saturday, mentioned Sissoko was yet to prove he deserved a spot.
“Football is just not about income. It is about players becoming better and that they show around the coaching ground that they’re superior than one more team-mate and that they deserve to become involved or not,” he told UK newspapers.
“In my opinion, I must take the decisions and I believe that the players that started inside the game and also the players around the bench deserved to become involved inside the game.
“There’s absolutely nothing else to it.”
Sissoko was left out with the squad for the trip to Stamford Bridge, with Spurs seven points behind leaders Chelsea immediately after the loss.
Pochettino called for the midfielder to show he deserved to become picked ahead of a few of his team-mates.
“It’s not frustrating for me. It is about football. We are able to see in football diverse things that take place. You sign a player and after that you count on a thing, and also you don’t discover what you expected,” he said.
“If a further deserved to be involved, like perhaps Josh Onomah or maybe [Vincent] Janssen then why [Sissoko]?
“Because we spend cash, do they deserve to play? He wants to work difficult and to show in future that he deserves to become within the team.”
