Tottenham midfielder Sissoko dismisses Deschamps' favouritism

Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko has dismissed claims he's favoured by France coach Didier Deschamps.

It's been suggested in the French media that Sissoko is Deschamps' "darling".

Sissoko told RMC: "These are things that have always been there.

"I have always had this label but I have ignored all that. When I look at all my matches in the French team, I have always answered this, been successful, whether in a friendly, during the 2014 World Cup, the Euro 2016 ... I also know that in football we cannot please everyone."
