Moussa Sissoko: Enjoying life in England

Sissoko joined Newcastle from Toulouse in January and has impressed during his brief spell in English football.

Speaking to L'Equipe, Sissoko said: "I don't know if Le Championnat is more defensive. Considering what I am experiencing at Newcastle, it is much more tactical.

"In England, teams start the game to win, score quickly and score as many goals as possible.

"In Ligue 1, we play the first half to not concede a goal. After half-time, we try to score one goal. In France, one goal is often enough."

Although he has been in England less than a year, Sissoko is convinced that the Premier League is one of the most exciting leagues in the world.

Sissoko added: "It is exciting to play in the Premier League. That is the reason why a lot of French players are dreaming of signing for an English club.

"The game in the Premier League is quite something."
