Tottenham Hotspur went nearly 18 months without making a single new signing over the course of the 2018/19 season, despite making the Champions League Final.
The Lilywhites finally broke that drought by signing Jack Clarke from Leeds United, followed by Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon, Giovani Lo Celso on loan from Real Betis, and Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham.
The latter impressed during a cameo on his Champions League debut last night in Serbia as Pochettino gave Sessegnon 15 minutes against Red Star Belgrade.
Spurs were already 3-0 up at the time but Sessegnon managed to add to that by assisting a fourth for Christian Eriksen, having an instant impact in his Tottenham career.
The ex-Fulham man has now revealed that it was difficult coming to Spurs as an injured player as he has had to work hard to get back to full fitness.
However, he praised the club for their help and assured fans that he wants to take every chance that comes his way.
He said (Tottenham): “It’s good to be back. It wasn’t easy coming to the Club injured and I’ve had to work hard to get to where I am now but credit to the medical staff, they’ve brought me back and now I’m raring to go.
“Every opportunity I get, I want to take. I’m grateful to the manager and to the players who have all welcomed me to the Club. I just want to keep repaying them with good performances.”
