Ryan Sessegnon has revealed that he never thought he would have to leave Tottenham permanently since he signed back in 2019.
The youngster was bought from Fulham for £25m in the summer of 2019 but suffered a slow start due to injury.
Over the past couple of years, Tottenham have moved from Mauricio Pochettino to Jose Mourinho, then Ryan Mason, Nuno Espirito Santo and now Antonio Conte.
All the while, Sessegnon struggled with multiple injuries and even went out on loan to Hoffenheim last season in search of more regular game time.
As such, the 21-year-old has not yet broken into the Spurs starting XI with any consistency, with only 15 appearances, one goal and one assist to his name.
However, Sessegnon is still young and assured fans in his press conference today that he never considered calling it quits on his time in North London.
Asked whether that was the case, Sessegnon replied (Football London): “Never, it never crossed my mind…never did it cross my mind that I thought I’d have to leave the club permanently.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
There is really no reason to have made a judgement on whether the Sessegnon signing was a success or failure yet. He has barely played and has been hampered by injuries. He deserves a fair shot and left-wing-back will give him just that.
