Hugo Lloris has heaped praise on Moussa Sissoko, saying 'he deserves all the credit' for his performances.
The 29-year-old was key in Tottenham's Champions League win over Inter Milan on Wednesday evening. He created the chance for Christian Eriksen to score in the 80th minute at the Wembley stadium as Mauricio Pochettino's side moved to second spot in Group B.
However, Lloris hailed his compatriot, who was signed for £30m from Newcastle in the summer of 2016, after the game.
"He deserves all the credit," Lloris told Sky Sports. "Even in a difficult situation, he kept believing in himself.
"He kept walking out and was always ready to help the team. I think this is a reward for all the work he has done since he signed for Tottenham.
"Now we can really see his value and importance within the squad.
"Moussa is a fantastic spirit. He is really appreciated in France, in the national team, that is why he is really appreciated in the squad in Tottenham.
"He is a great team-mate and the first to lead by example, on and off the pitch."
