He once formed part of the ‘best midfield in the world,’ but now Momo Sissoko is without a club aged 32, after Serie B outfit Ternana terminated his contract, reports Goal.
The Mali international signed for the Italian side 25 days ago, but they’ve sacked him after he refused to be a substitute at the weekend – openly disobeying manager Fabio Liverani’s instructions.
Sissoko was once winning FA Cups with ourselves and league titles with Valencia and Juventus, so it’s some fall from grace – having endured short, failed spells at Fiorentina, Levante and Shanghai Shenhua in recent years.
At this best, Sissoko was a barnstorming central midfielder with strength and underrated technical ability, but an eye injury stunted his development in 2006 and he sadly never recovered into the world-class player he threatened to become as a youngster.
It’s crazy to think he’s still only 32, but it sadly looks like his career is on the wane.
Hopefully he finds a new club and enjoys one final hurrah!
