Jose Mourinho has converted Dele Alli back to the old Dele Alli. But has he also turned Moussa Sissoko into Lionel Messi?
Sissoko scored his first Tottenham Hotspur goal in 69 Premier League games, and only third in total, with a thumping volley in yesterday’s 3-2 win over Bournemouth – a brilliant strike which Spurs fans were shocked to see came from the boot of the France international midfielder.
This unexpected goal has taken the headlines, but that wasn’t Sissoko’s only highlight reel worthy moment against the Cherries. Check out this 60-yard, dribble, including Messi-esque cheeky nutmeg.
It seems it is not just Dele benefiting from the Mourinho effect at Spurs…
