Newcastle Sissoko: English football made for me

Newcastle Sissoko: English football made for me

Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko believes he suits well Premier league style of football after making an impressive start to his Magpies’ career.

The 23-year-old France international made a decisive impact in his first game in Newcastle shirt, setting up a goal for Papiss Cisse at Aston Villa. He has also scored double in a crucial home game against Chelsea.

Sissoko reckons a recipe of his success lies in a more attacking role he is instructed to play for the club. “Toulouse are a good team with quality players but going forward sometimes we experienced difficulties,” midfielder revealed L’Equipe.

“English football is made for me. I’ve thought that for a while. I know I will often be in a position to score, just like last weekend.
“It is the same in the France team. I feel better and better. At first, I didn’t dare to take risks - I just did control and pass. Nowadays if I have to dribble, I do it.”
