‘Come back’, ‘we need you’: Some Spurs fans react as 20-year-old loanee dazzles in Thursday win

A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to praise Spurs loanee Ryan Sessegnon for his latest performance.

The 20-year-old joined the North Londoners from Fulham last summer in a reported £25million deal.

Sessegnon arrived at Tottenham to much fanfare, given his superb performances for the Cottagers in their 2017-18 promotion-winning campaign.

However, the winger’s maiden season at Spurs didn’t go to plan, with a hamstring injury keeping him out of action until November and little game time after that.

Sessegnon’s final tally in 2019-20 stood at 12 competitive senior appearances in all competitions, of which six were in the Premier League and three in the Champions League.

Earlier this month, the England Under-21 ace joined Bundesliga side Hoffenheim on a season-long loan, and he has made four appearances for them to date.

Sessegnon was in Europa League action on Thursday night, playing the full 90 minutes as Hoffenheim ran out 4-1 winners at Gent in Group L.

The Spurs gem, playing on the left wing in a 3-5-2, weighed in with two shots on target, a passing accuracy of 88.5 percent, two successful dribbles and two clearances.

While Sessegnon was dazzling and winning in Belgium, Tottenham were having no such luck on the continent, falling to a 1-0 defeat in Antwerp.

Some Spurs fans congratulated him for his display on social media, and some even longed for him to come back soon to aid their cause:
