Tottenham fans take to Twitter as Ryan Sessegnon suffers injury blow
Ryan Sessegnon is yet to hit the heights expected of him at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The England U21 international has been forced to pull out of the latest squad with injury and will now return to Spurs, missing out on Tuesday’s clash with Kosovo (England Football).
It’s obviously far from ideal for the player and for Spurs.
Sessegnon’s unspecified injury, described just as a knock, will hopefully be one that he can recover quickly from.
The Lilywhites are yet to see what the player can really bring in a Spurs shirt, although he was set to get a go in the senior side this season (Evening Standard).
Having signed from Fulham in 2019 for £25m as a 19-year-old (BBC), there were high expectations for the pacey left-sided player.

However, we’re yet to see the best of the player.
Age is still on Sessegnon’s side. At just 21 there is plenty of time for him to turn things around at the North London club, but injury issues haven’t helped him.
A lingering hamstring injury hung over him when he first signed for Spurs and then a loan to Hoffenheim last season meant he was out of sight for many Tottenham fans.
However, if he can recover from his current injury layoff and shine for Spurs in the Europa Conference League and domestic cup competitions then anything can happen.
In Sergio Reguilon and Ben Davies there is stiff competition to be Nuno’s starting left-back.
As a winger we could see more from the ex-Fulham man, but it depends how Nuno sees his side going forward throughout the rest of the season.
First thing’s first, though, Sessegnon needs to get back to fitness.

Poor old Ryan can’t catch a break at Spurs. Let’s hope it’s minor and he’s back soon— Christopher Evans (@Barry_Carrot) September 6, 2021
Another sick note on the cards here! And not done it has he, bless him— Nick Homewood (@Nickyh_yiddo) September 6, 2021
All our defenders are either getting injured or arrested.— Fahad Ayub (@fahadaalvi) September 6, 2021
Story of his life unfortunately. Can’t see him having much of a Tottenham career If I’m being honest 30m looks very very expensive now.— AaronTHFC (@Aaron92thfc) September 6, 2021
