Moussa Sissoko: Mourinho is watching me

Newcastle United’s French midfielder Moussa Sissoko has given an extensive interview to our colleagues at RMC about Vieira rumours, his own future and José Mourinho.

On his future:

“For the moment, I am still at Newcastle and I feel good over there. There is no problem. After that, you can never be sure about what is going to happen. If I am to move, the French national team will be part of my thinking. I will make the right choice. Champions League football? All players dream of playing in this competition. I hope to participate in it one day. I am patient. I am waiting for my time.”

On the Premier League:

“I am enjoying myself in the English league. I spent some very nice years at Toulouse. When I arrived in England, I started to live something different. It is a league that suits me very well. I love everything over there. I can see myself finishing my career in England because it suits my style of play.”

On José Mourinho:

“Is he following my progress? According to what I am hearing, yes. He is one of the best managers in the world. He has won so many titles… Any player would love to be coached by this man. For the moment, I am coached by other people (John Carver). If one day I have the chance to work under his guidance, I would be very happy.”

On Patrick Vieira – Newcastle rumours:

“I heard about this yesterday. If he comes to Newcastle I would be very happy. He was a role model for me. He played in the same position as I do. He allowed me to learn faster and faster, to be the best. At the moment, the manager is still John Carver. Even if the second half of the season was difficult, he is someone who I appreciate.”
