Sissoko living Premier dream

Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko feels he is living the dream

as he prepares to take on Manchester City on Saturday.

The France international announced his arrival in the Premier

League with a brace against Chelsea last month and claims such

games are what mark the competition out as the best in the

world.

“One of the reasons I came to Newcastle was to play against the

big clubs like Chelsea and City,” said Sissoko, quoted in the Daily

Star.

“I’ve always thought the Premier League is the best in the world

and nothing I have experienced so far has made me change my

mind.

“For me, it’s a dream to play in such great games and come up

against such great players.

“Newcastle have helped fulfil my dreams. That is why every time

I go out there I give my best shot to keep the dream alive.

It’s going to be hard for us but we’ll give it a real go and

we’ll do everything possible to come away with the victory.”

The Magpies travel to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday just six

points above the Premier League relegation zone.
