The transfer of Moussa Sissoko to Spurs from Tyneside raised a lot of eyebrows. Having been a mainstay at Newcastle, he made the move to Tottenham post the Magpies’ relegation in the 15-16 season. The versatile midfielder seemed to have made a good move when he joined Spurs.

But Sissoko’s time at Tottenham is puzzling. He made a disappointing start to life at Spurs. His second season saw him get a long run of games due to injuries in Spurs’ midfield. Often frustrating fans with lacklustre performances and at the same time exciting fans with his industrious play, Sissoko’s time at Spurs has seen highs and lows.

But of late, the Frenchman seems to have gotten it together, performing consistently when his team needed him the most. Putting in solid performances and becoming the engine of Spurs’ midfield, Sissoko’s latest act in the game versus Huddersfield has got the fans on his side alright!

Sissoko can be seen on TV coverage reacting to a Huddersfield player shoving Juan Foyth after they were awarded a free-kick. Terriers’ number 7 Juninho Bacuna was attempting to retrieve the ball for the free-kick with his side trailing 2-0. Spurs defender Foyth was inadvertently obstructing the path between Bacuna and the ball and was shoved out of the way by Bacuna out of sheer frustration.

This did not sit well with Sissoko, who was in the vicinity as this event unfolded. Standing up for his teammate, Sissoko fought fire with fire by shoving Bacuna away, cheered by fans as he did so.

For the fans who witnessed it, it was a moment to savor. It pumped up the players and fans alike to see Sissoko have Juan’s back. Who doesn’t love a teammate who fights for another; who fights for the team? After Moussa’s lionhearted support and Lucas’ heroics on the ball, Spurs went on the demolish relegated Huddersfield 4-0.

It really is invigorating to see teammates back you no matter what the circumstance. Knowing that your teammates are always by your side gives you a certain level of pride, power, and responsibility. It’s what makes a group of players, a team.
