Tottenham Hotspur Star Names Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah as His Idols
- Yves Bissouma has praised Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane
- The Tottenham star insists the Liverpool legends are his idols
- Bissouma is enjoying a good season with Tottenham in the Premier League
Yves Bissouma has opened up on his memorable encounter with Liverpool legends Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.
The Mali midfielder first faced Mane and Salah in a Premier League game during his time with Brighton and Hove Albion.
Bissouma, who now plies his trade with Tottenham Hotspur, had moved to England from French Ligue 1 side Lille in 2018.
According to Bissouma, it was a surreal moment playing against his idols, whom he could only watch on TV while in France.
“During that match I came out of the locker room and I saw Van Dijk, I saw Mane, I saw Salah. These were the guys I saw on TV when I was in France, and now I was in the same tunnel going up against them. It was like a dream, you know what I mean? Mane and Salah were my idols, and I just thought ‘woah’. My heart was beating fast," he told Tottenham Hotspur's YouTube Channel.
Following an impressive four-year spell at Brighton, he earned a move to North London, signing a long-term deal with Tottenham, as reported by Sky Sports.
Bissouma has been a key figure for the club since the arrival of new manager Ange Postecoglu.
