Wantaway Newcastle star Moussa Sissoko won’t be in matchday squad for Reading clash

His stance has made him Public Enemy No. 1 with supporters.

But Benitez insists that if he was fit, Sissoko would come into consideration for his first call-up of the season even though the odds are in moving on this month.

“Moussa is fine mentally,” said Benitez. “He knows the situation.

“He is training well but got a knock on his ankle on Monday so he will not be involved.

“But in terms of his mentality, he is just a professional, training and waiting for news like everyone else.”
