Pochettino confirms Sissoko likely to miss Ajax clash

Moussa Sissoko could miss the first leg of Tottenham’s Champions League semi-final against Ajax according to Mauricio Pochettino, who said the midfielder could be out “for the next two weeks”.

Midfielder Harry Winks has also been struggling with a similar problem to Sissoko but managed 81 minutes on Wednesday before sitting out Saturday’s defeat at the Etihad Stadium.

“Moussa Sissoko is not going to be fit, maybe for the next two weeks,” said Pochettino.

“We hope he can recover before but I am not so optimistic. Harry Winks we don’t know because it is a problem that is one day very good, next day not very good, it is about assessing each day.mWe hope he will be available for Tuesday [against Brighton] but we are not sure.”
