Tottenham flop wants Pochettino to ‘communicate better’

Moussa Sissoko says he wants boss Mauricio Pochettino to “communicate better” and tell the midfielder whether he has a future at Tottenham.

Sissoko has been tipped to leave Spurs this summer after failing to impress since his move from Newcastle.

And the France international told L’Equipe he wants his future to be resolved as soon as possible.

“I would like him (Pochettino) to communicate better. I want a completely honest conversation to see what they plan to do, what they are seeing in terms of my future,” Sissoko said.

“From that moment on, everything will be clearer in my head. What I want is for everything to be clear.

“If the manager is no longer counting on me, if he thinks that other players are better, then he should say it.

“The idea is to be clear very early to allow, if I need to leave, for my agent to do good work. Even if everyone knows that I prefer England, I have never closed the door to any league.

“We will see what the offers are, but Ligue 1 continues to be attractive. We have seen this year with PSG and Monaco but also teams like Nice, Lyon and Marseille. We will analyse everything and try to make the best choice.”

Sissoko also suggested that he might look to move on in order to boost his chances of featuring in next year’s World Cup.

“We’ll talk with my agent to make the best decision. My goal is to go to the 2018 World Cup,” he said.

“They (Spurs) know I’m 27, that I’m not a child and I have a World Cup to go and play.

“If I have to leave, I hope they won’t cause a problem.”
