Tottenham boss Pochettino admits having little influence on Sissoko's deal

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino admits he had little influence on Moussa Sissoko's new four-year deal.

It was announced on Friday that the 30-year-old midfielder had agreed new terms taking him through until 2023 but, speaking on Monday, Pochettino seemed to suggest he was not involved in the process.

"It's a decision from the club and the player to sign a contract," Pochettino said, speaking ahead of facing Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The Frenchman has had an impressive last 18 months and has become a regular under Pochettino, going on to make 132 appearances in all competitions since he arrived.
