‘He’s sensitive’: Yves Bissuoma’s ‘brother’ tells Spurs fans how to get the best from new signing

Will new Tottenham signing Yves Bissouma become the best signing of the summer?

Tottenham fans will help push new signing Yves Bissouma to the next level if they show him love because he is such an emotional player, according to his dressing room ‘brother’ Gaetan Bong.

When Bissouma first arrived at Brighton in 2018,  he barely could construct a sentence in English and it was full-back Bong who took him under his wing and helped him out.

The now-Nottingham Forest man told the Argus: “You could see after games how he enjoyed himself with the fans. They were singing his name and he loved that.

“He’s sensitive. The more love you give him, the more you get from him. In Brighton, he could find that. It was like a family.

“Last year he stayed because he loved the club but he had too much quality to not try something else.”

Antonio Conte looking to build a world class squad

Tottenham mean business and the fact that they are backing manager Antonio Conte is proof that they are looking to seal their spot as a Champions League side in the Premier League.

Antonio Conte rates himself as one of the best managers in the world and he will be hoping that there is still more to come in this transfer window.

Last summer the biggest story was striker Harry Kane wanting to leave the club, but the change in ambition and the return of Champions League football means he is looking to break records in north London rather than looking for a way out.
