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."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
