Deserving to be included in the list of best ever British footballers, Sissoko
For years, Tottenham were one of the most boring teams in the English Premier League. For a long time now, they are the team to be feared in the league. And for this reason, the team’s turbulent relationship with midfielder Mousa Dembele is somewhat forgotten in the history of the history. Dembele was a saviour in 2013, scoring the equalizer against Liverpool. Three years later, in the Champions League, he helped Tottenham qualify for the last 16 with an assist to Eric Dier. And as always, he played a key role in a key game for his team against Southampton, manning the midfield like a genius.
Just weeks ago, Tottenham bought Dembele from Borussia Dortmund for a reported £13 million. So far, Spurs have returned him to their home of the Northwest in no time at all, with some impressive performances so far.
Maybe that’s where the great Mousa Dembele disappeared. That’s the case when comparing his performance when he was at Dortmund and at Tottenham.
Perhaps, the glory of the Europa League makes Dembele a better player than the Maasai tribesman. With all of his compatriots at Arsenal, Leicester and other Premier League clubs, Mousa Dembele has to achieve better individual results than he does at Spurs. But as they say in Kenyan and German, umuten engenierterter auf dem Landenland.
