Facts About Pione Sisto

  • Young players at FC Midtjylland train 12 hours a week on average. But not Sisto. Then he doubled it, working on his technique, his crossing, his shooting, and his set pieces for 24 hours.
  • Siston was born in Uganda in 1995, not long after his family fled south Sudan. Within a few months, they left for Europe and ended up in Hoejslev Stations by, a rather remote village in the north of Jutland in Denmark.
  • Sisto has eight siblings, all of whom have taken their studies seriously. Football, however, became Pione’s education. Sisto’s talent was evident from the beginning, and when his family moved to Tj*rring he was spotted by Midtjylland.
  • During his time at Midtjylland, Sisto met Riddersholm, with the coach looking after him both in the youth team and after they had both been promoted, in the first team. Riddersholm tried to protect Sisto by keeping him out of the first team, but in the end, this was impossible. Sisto was simply too good to be kept out.
  • Sisto did not become a Danish citizen until December 2014, but once that had happened he was quickly called up to the Under-21s – and then the seniors. Sisto has started every game for Denmark since October 2016 and scored his first goal in a friendly against Panama in January.
  • Ge Hareide, Denmark’s coach, has tried to develop Sisto’s link play with Christian Eriksen and is well aware that opponents’ focus on the Spurs player will open up space for the Celta winger.
  • In a Euro 2016 qualifying match against Albania, Sisto made his Danish national football team debut on 4 September 2015. During the first 45 minutes, he played before being replaced by Yussuf Poulsen at halftime. There were no goals in the game.
  • In 2014, when Glen Riddersholm was a youth coach at FC Midtjylland, there was a player who was determined to improve. “It is rare, even in an elite environment, to find someone with as much determination as Pione Sisto,” Riddersholm told Jyllands-Posten back then.
