I am here help Tottenham win the League, says Moussa Sissoko

Tottenham’s summer signing Moussa Sissoko has stated that he wants to help Spurs win the Premier League according to the Standard.

The north London based side were involved in a title race with Leicester City last season before eventually ended the season in third place behind their bitter rivals Arsenal.

Sissoko told the Standard that the draw of playing in the UEFA Champions League also helped convince him to make the move to Tottenham.

“I came here to help them so I hope we have a great season and finish top of the league. They played very well all last season,” Sissoko told the Standard.

“I have said for a long time that I wanted to play in the Champions League, which is why I came to this big club. I am very happy and proud to be here and I hope we have a great season.”

The 27-year-old looked set to join Everton on deadline day before Tottenham came in with a late bid. Sissoko was one of the stars of Euro 2016 where he helped lead France to the final against Portugal.

The box-to-box midfielder made his debut for Tottenham during their 4-0 win over Stoke City and is expected to be included in the squad which takes on Monaco in the UEFA Champions League this week.
