Mauricio Pochettino believes that Moussa Sissoko still has an important role to play for Tottenham this coming season despite being left at home during the US tour with a 'virus'.
The £30m man has not hit the heights seen during Euro 2016 or even the form that he showed at Newcastle.

“He's a member of our squad and he's in my plans for the season and for us he is still a member of the squad.
The Spurs boss went on to describe his happiness about his side's performance after their 4-2 win against PSG during their US tour:
“It's important that in our first game in our pre-season to try again to feel the competition again, because it's early but when you play against these type of teams, like PSG, always it's important to compete."
