Tottenham fans react as Ryan Sessegnon eyes Gareth Bale-style rise

Some Tottenham Hotspur supporters have been reacting to comments made by Ryan Sessegnon about potentially following in the footsteps of superstar Gareth Bale.

The summer signing from Fulham is eyeing a rise similar to that of the Welshman with the north Londoners, having already been compared to the Real Madrid man by fans and pundits.

Bale started out as a full-back, before moving to play in more attacking positions.

The star left Spurs in 2013 for £85 million (BBC Sport), which was a transfer record at the time.

He’s gone on to win 13 major trophies with Real, including four Champions League titles.

Speaking to The Football Daily, Sessegnon said of Bale: “He was one of the players I looked up to when I was younger. He has attributes that I want to add to my game.

“In terms of the attacking mentality on the left flank to run in behind, to dribble the ball, I try to add a bit of that into my game.

“If I could be as great as he has become, then that would be a massive achievement.”

Asked how far off Bale he was, Sessegnon admitted he is ‘so far off’, adding he is still young with a lot of improvements to make.
