With Tottenham Hotspur battling back in the International Champions Cup clash with Juventus on Sunday to take a 3-2 victory courtesy of goals from Erik Lamela, Lucas Moura and Harry Kane’s fabulous long-range late lob, Moussa Sissoko got himself some praise for his performance as well.
With often linked Adrian Rabiot lining up for our opposition, plenty of fans remembered a ‘source close to the player’ suggesting that Tottenham were ‘below’ the players’ aspirations as he engineered his move from Paris Saint-Germain and when Sissoko clattered into him during the game, it brought a wry smile to the faces of many.
It definitely did when he took to social media to highlight the moment with the message, “No Hard Feelings!”
With Sissoko’s stock rising at White Hart Lane given his far improved performances last season for manager Mauricio Pochettino, it was simply another chance for fans to heap the praise on the 29-year-old.

Before last season everybody wanted him out. Now he’s a fan favorite. Moussa Sissoko. This is exactly why we love him. He gives everything on the pitch and a little more. In January Rabiot claimed we were below his level. Sissoko clearly didn’t forget that
