Mali midfielder Yves Bissouma returned from the Africa Cup of Nations to entertain his Tottenham Hotspurs teammates.

It was his first game since rejoining his teammates after Mali's quarter-final exit at the Nations Cup in Ivory Coast.

In a video shared on social media, Bissouma is seen jamming to the trending AFCON song, with his teammates enjoying the scene as Emerson Royal joined him on the dance floor.

The song which goes with a popular choreography is mostly played during matches at AFCON and has become a popular tune on social media.

Players of the Ivorian national team celebrate their wins with the song.

Meanwhile, Bissouma, who has 33 caps for Mali made four appearances for the West Africans as they reached the last eight at AFCON. He was an extra-time substitute in the defeat to host Ivory Coast.

Bissouma's return was a huge boost for Tottenham, as he turned the game around following his introduction in the second half at the Tottenham stadium.

Having gone down to an early goal from Pascal Gross, fellow AFCON returnee Pape Matar Sarr levelled for the host on the hour mark before Brennan Johnson netted the winner late in extra time.

Ivory Coast will face Nigeria in the final of the tournament on Sunday in Abidjan, as reported by Sky Sports.

Ferguson makes Tottenham submission

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Legendary Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson named the club he thinks will never win the Premier League title.

Fergie retired in 2013 after an illustrious managerial career at Old Trafford that saw him win the domestic crown a record 13 times.

Given his dominance and experience in the English topflight, Ferguson is undoubtedly better placed to deduce the dynamics of the division.
