first_imgHaving scored two in his last three games, strikes against Bournemouth and Burnley, Sissoko put an end to an astonishing run of 69 league matches without a goal.And he believes that the new manager has instilled new belief in the squad.He said: “[Mourinho] has given belief to everyone.”Everyone knows we were in a difficult situation and the confidence was very low, so he tried to speak to everyone, to give everyone confidence, to be close to everyone.”He knows I’m a player who likes to go box-to-box. I can score a few goals every year, so he said to me to just play my game, to go forward when I can and see if I can score.”I scored because I was in the box. Maybe in the past I was deeper and didn’t try. Hopefully I can score a few more goals.”LATEST SPURS NEWSHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summerYOU KAN DO ITKlinsmann quit Spurs to win trophies but says Kane’s better off stayingTURBULENT PAIRINGDrogba and Mido had mid-flight brawl after stewardess prank went wrongGossipSPURRED ONTottenham table contract offer for Bayern Munich’s teenage starlet Taylor BoothExclusivePASS THE TESTEngland’s NRL-based stars urge bosses to make room for a Test this yearSpurs face Bayern Munich tomorrow night in Germany, and Mourinho is expected to give some of his younger players an opportunity to shine.The likes of Kyle Walker-Peters, Oliver Skipp, Troy Parrott and Japhet Tanganga could feature against the Bundesliga giants.The big-hitters will then return for the weekend’s tricky trip to Wolves. José Mourinho compares Son wonder-goal vs Burnley to legendary Ronaldo Nazário strike for Barcelona MOUSSA SISSOKO has revealed that he disagrees with manager Jose Mourinho’s assessment of his best position.The Frenchman has played in a number of different roles this season for Spurs, including central midfield, right midfield and even right back.1 Sissoko believes he is best played centrallyCredit: Getty – ContributorBut after the defeat against Manchester United last week, Mourinho said of his position: “I don’t think he’s a midfield player in a core position, number six or a double six.”I think the best position for Moussa is when the team plays with a positional midfielder and he has freedom to go, or from the right like he did against Bournemouth.”The 30-year-old, however, doesn’t agree with his manager’s assessment.He told the Standard: “I haven’t spoken to him about [my position] but I saw [what he said].”He’s the manager, so if he says to me to play as a number six or at the front or on the right side, I will do my best.”I know I’m capable to play every role. At the end [against Burnley], I even played right-back.”But to be in the middle of the pitch is my best position. If it’s Number six, number eight, number ten, it doesn’t matter, but I like to be in the centre. For the team I will do everything the manager asks me.”Since Mourinho’s arrival, Sissoko has shocked fans by turning into a goal-scoring midfielder.last_img
