Tottenham Hotspur returned to the Champions League this week, and Yves Bissouma got the opportunity to make his debut in the competition, writes the TBR.
Spurs were made to work hard by Ligue 1 side Marseille, who dominated the first half of the clash. However, a red card to Chancel Mbemba right after half-time turned the game on its head, and the North Londoners picked up a 2-0 win in the end.
Spurs signed Bissouma from Brighton and Hove Albion for £25 million this summer (ESPN).
The Mali international has been one of the best players in his position in the Premier League over the last few years, and he was always destined for a big move. After a long wait, Spurs snapped him up.
Bissouma had never played in the Champions League before this week. He started on the bench on Wednesday and for large parts of the game, it looked like he wouldn’t come on.
Thankfully for him, Spurs boss Antonio Conte gave him the nod for the last five minutes, and thus, a childhood dream was fulfilled.
A happy Bissouma took to Instagram yesterday and revealed that he wore his Tottenham shirt from the Champions League game against Marseille to bed.
He posted a picture of his top and wrote on his Instagram Stories: “I sleep all the night with this shirt yesterday @championsleague. It’s magic.”
