Moussa Sissoko: Tottenham expected more - Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko has failed to live up to expectations following his £30m move from Newcastle, says manager Mauricio Pochettino.
France international Sissoko, 27, did not even make the bench for Spurs' 2-1 defeat at Chelsea on Saturday.
"Football is not about money," said Pochettino.
"You need to show on the training ground you are better than another team-mate and you deserve to be involved."
Sissoko joined Spurs on a five-year contract after they matched Everton's bid on transfer deadline day in September.
He has made five starts in all competitions, plus five more appearances as a substitute.
However, he has not played in the Premier League since being given a three-match ban for elbowing Bournemouth's Harry Arter on 22 October.
The former Toulouse player missed the EFL Cup tie against Liverpool as well as league games against Leicester and Arsenal, but was not involved against West Ham on 19 November.
"If you sign a player and you expect something and you do not find what you expect and if another deserves to be involved, like (Georges-Kevin) Nkoudou or (Vincent) Janssen - why? Because we paid money we need to put the player to play?" added Argentine Pochettino.
"Of course he needs to work hard and show in the future he deserves to be involved in the team.
"I need to take a decision and I believe the players that start on the bench deserve to be involved."

Well, that is one way of saying he has signed a wrong one.  In his time at NUFC Sissoko never really produced anything and I was knocked out by spurs paying 30mil for him when it was obvious he was just about the level of the Mags.

Lol all throughout the euro final, commentators kept pointing out how he was essentially just playing for a contract. It worked, he convinced someone to take him away from the championship, and now he's back to vacation mode.

When he wants to, the guy really steps up his game. He has yaya toure type of runs from midfield where he clears everyone in his path and blast a wicked one at goal. 

Unfortunately, similar to many talented people--not just in football--he's just not invested enough to really make much use of his abilities. He's perfectly fine with collecting his pay, doing the bare minimum, going home to his expensive sports car and super model girlfriend supplemented by the ultimate bachelor party lifestyle that money can buy.

Nani and Memphis Depay fall into this category too.

To each his own, right?

He'll either be sold, loaned, or his contract will run out and during his last days he'll play some crazy game and deceive the next manager to come scoop him up where he'll return to and repeat the cycle of his old habits at his new club.

Agreed, he represents all that is wrong with modern Premier League footballers (not all of them of course but a significant number) Evil or Very Mad

The whole system is like that now. Not just players but even teams and managers. It's really just all about the money. Can't really blame them. When he retires, he won't have trophies to look back on but at least hell have a plethora of cars and women. And he can say pro football afforded him that opportunity
