'We'll see him develop': Gold says Conte is over the moon with 22-year-old Tottenham talent

Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte is “very pleased” with Spurs ace Ryan Sessegnon, according to Alasdair Gold.

The football.london Tottenham correspondent was speaking about the full-back on the Gold & Guest Talk Tottenham Podcast.

Sessegnon has needed a while to find his feet at Spurs after joining from Fulham back in 2019.

The 22-year-old even spent most of the 2020-21 campaign out on loan, playing for German outfit Hoffenheim.

But this year, Sessegnon has finally made his breakthrough at Tottenham, and is now very much in Conte’s plans.

So far this term, the England Under-21 international has made six appearances in all competitions for Spurs.

And Gold is optimistic about Sessegnon’s future under Conte, as well as learning from Ivan Perisic.

“Yeah, we’re just thinking about injuries aren’t we? That’s the main thing with Sessegnon, steer clear of injuries.

“He’s gone off with the England U21s now, please, please don’t do anything there because he’s had a few problems with them in the past.

“The more confidence he has with getting minutes and not getting injured, we’ll see him develop.

“Conte is very pleased with him and who better a mentor to have than one of the best in the world in that position in Perisic?”

Sessegnon finally on the right track to fulfil potential at Spurs – TBR View

The last few years have been a rollercoaster ride for Sessegnon.

He joined Tottenham to much fanfare, as one of the most exciting prospects in English football.

But for a while, it looked as though Sessegnon would fail to fulfil his potential at Spurs.

That’s in the past now, and Sessegnon has taken to Conte’s system superbly.

At just 22, he is still in the early stages of his career, and it’ll be exciting to see how he develops in the coming years.
