Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez insists he can bring out the best in Moussa Sissoko.
The France international has shown glimpses of his true potential at Tyneside.
And new manager, Benitez has revealed he has spoken at length with Sissoko and believes he can help Newcastle stay in the EPL.
“I was talking with him right at the beginning and he was very positive. He was very clear. In terms of his work-rate on the pitch he’s been fantastic,” he told the Newcastle Evening Chronicle.
“If he carries on doing this he’ll be better. He has everything, potential and quality.
“He has a lot of things it’s just being sure he will put things on to the pitch. You saw in the last game he was running and passing players, he still has to improve things.
“At Leicester he probably could have had a penalty. He was there but he will need time. He will score goals in the future.
