Moussa: "It's a good time - I want to keep it that way"

Footballing life keeps getting better and better for Moussa Sissoko.
The French powerhouse has featured in 10 of our last 13 games since returning from a hamstring injury in our Carabao Cup win over Watford at Stadium MK back in September.
Moussa has also started our last six games in the Premier League - we've won five - and he performed admirably against Wolves, Palace and Chelsea before another starring role in our crucial 1-0 win against Inter in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
Needing a goal as time ran out, Moussa's burst into the box led to Christian Eriksen's winner and kept alive our hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages. Our destiny is in our hands as we head to Barcelona for the final round of matches in Group B.
“At the moment I'm happy with what I'm doing on the pitch so I hope to keep going in that way,” he said. “Since I came here, some periods weren't easy, but I never gave up and everyone here helped me to give my best.
“I trained hard and I always say when you train hard and give everything you always have the chance for success. I'm happy and I hope I will keep going.
“It’s a great feeling to hear the fans singing my name, every player wants this kind of emotion.
“Football is about ups and downs. Sometimes you can have bad moments, then good moments and at the moment it’s a good time and I need to keep going in that way. At the same time, I will still stay focused in my mind, keep working and try to improve and give my best when I get the opportunity to play.”
Back to Wembley on Wednesday, and Moussa was delighted to play his part in a key win.
"I saw the space and I ran with the ball," he reflected. "I made a difference, so that’s good, but like I said, this victory is all about the squad. We work hard and when you work hard, this is what happens in the games.
“It was a great game against Inter. It wasn’t easy. It was an amazing feeling when we got the goal. It was a great atmosphere, we needed this victory and we did it.
"We’re still in the race for qualification, so hopefully we can win the last game against Barcelona but before that, we have more games to play, especially a massive derby on Sunday. We need to recover and be ready for that."
