Ryan Sessegnon has become the latest Tottenham first-team player to participate in a Q and A session Spurs’ official Twitter account.
Among the questions the former Fulham player was asked by supporters is who is the toughest opponent he has faced in training and his answer might surprise a few.
The 20-year-old revealed that Eric Dier was the hardest player to square off against in training.
He said: “Eric Dier is a tough opponent to play against in training. Especially, when he plays centre-back.
“He is quick, he is strong, he covers a lot of ground and he is hard to get past.”
The England Under-21 international also revealed that Lucas Moura and Son Heung-min were the hardest to defend against in training due to their agility and skill.
Speaking about the pair, Sessegnon added: “In the small-sided games, it is probably Lucas Moura. So direct, he dribbles quick, he has great agility.
“He can go left, go right. Sonny as well. Purely for the same type of reason.”
The England Under-21 was also quizzed over who is the best FIFA gamer at the club.
Sessegnon has proven previously that he is no slouch at the game, recently beating West Ham’s, Michail Antonio
The youngster insisted that he was the best at Spurs when he initially arrived but admitted that title now belongs to January signing Steven Bergwijn.
He said: “You know what, I was (the best FIFA player at Spurs) until Steven came. So to answer your question. I’m currently not.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Eric Dier seems to be highly thought of by a lot of his Spurs team-mates. I believe he can potentially be a very good option for us at centre-back next season. I would not be surprised to see him start regularly ahead of one of either Davinson Sanchez or Toby Alderweireld.
