Is Sissoko criticising Pochettino

Listening to the commentary last night former players were reading between the lines of previous Pochettino quotes about summer signing Moussa Sissoko. They were suggesting that the Argentinian had not been impressed with the attitude of the Frenchman, nor the effort he was putting in on the training field.

One has to ask if he is one of these players who feel he has a divine right to a place in a side, much the same as fellow Frenchman Etienne Capoue who was shunted out of White Hart Lane and recently admitted it was his attitude that was wrong.

Sissoko gave his explanation for Spurs poor form recently to ESPN FC.

“Everyone knows how we play and they try to give 100 percent against Tottenham. Every team we play has a different style but we have a philosophy of how to play, and we try to do the same philosophy every game. Sometimes it’s working, sometimes it is a little bit harder. 
“We still keep going in that way because that is how we work and how we did well in the past. It’s just a bad moment, but we will come back stronger.”

That, to me, smacks of a player that has not bought into the Pochettino philosophy, it sounds like Younes Kaboul, another player who thought he knew better and disagreed with the managers tactics. He seems to be complaining we play the same way, just as every successful team generally does.
