Ex-Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino, was unable to make a huge number of signings in his final two years in charge of the North London club.

The Lilywhites went almost 18-months without a single signing under the Argentine, before they invested in Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso, Ryan Sessegnon, and Jack Clarke last summer.

However, even then, Jack Clarke went back out on loan and Lo Celso only joined Spurs on loan.

This highlights what an honour it must have been for Sessegnon to be selected as a player Poch and Levy wanted to come into the club, seeing as they had room for so few additions.

Unfortunately, the teenager only ever got to play two games under Poch before his sacking, partly due to an extended injury upon joining the club.

Sessegnon has now revealed that he was disappointed when Pochettino was axed from his role at Spurs, as he had been a main reason for the youngster joining in the first place.

He said (Football London): “For me, he was a big part of me coming to the club. I knew they had been watching me for a while and to finally get the opportunity to come to the club, play under him was a dream come true really,” he said.

“Then of course for him to go suddenly after not working with him at all was disappointing because, like I say, he was one of the reasons I came to the club.

“But that’s part of the game and the new manager has come in and I’m just trying to work and improve under him.”
