The Daily Mail reckon that Momo Sissoko’s itchy feet won’t have been helped by the fact that he was dropped from yesterday’s whupping of kiss-merchants Marseilles. Apparently Sissoko is getting very disgruntled with all this not-playing japery, although if you play as badly as Mr Sissoko did at the weekend, especially in front of the watchful eyes of the world’s biggest rotation obsessive – then you can hardly cry foul when you are dropped, can you?
Sissoko didnt pull any punches, saying:
“I am seriously hacked off. The Marseille game is in France, all my family is over there and they wanted to see me play. These are difficult times for me. I have been thinking about leaving for some time now. It is the manager’s choice to leave me out. I can respect that, but we will have talks in January. I will sit down and take stock of the situation with my agents and the manager. I can accept healthy competition for places. But I am not interested in playing just one match in five.”
And the Daily Mail have taken this quote, put 1 and 1 together, and come up with 346.58, they seem to think that because Everton wanted Sissoko in the past – before Rafa nabbed the Mali midfielder from under Moyes’ nose in 2005 – that they’ll be at the front of the queue to gobble him up. It has to be said that Everton are in dire need of another midfielder, but does Sissoko fit the bill, and would Rafa let him change Mersey tribes?
