Tottenham Hotspur not only managed to secure all three points and a clean sheet last night in the Champions League, but Pochettino also gave a debut in the competition to young Ryan Sessegnon.
The teenager came on at left-wing and looked lively for the 15 minutes he was given, even picking up an assist as he got to the byline and picked out Christian Eriksen.
In truth, Sessegnon could have had another assist and maybe even a goal if the Spurs lads had picked him out a little better against a ten-man Red Star Belgrade.
Sessegnon spoke confidently after the game:
“It’s a fantastic feeling, something that I have always wanted to do. To come on today and assist a goal was the perfect way for me to play. If was to come on, I wanted to impact the game, whether it was a goal, an assist, or some nice touches and nice play. Thankfully I did that today and I can use it as a boost for upcoming games.”
“I knew if I was to come on I wanted to impact the game and thankfully I did that.”
