    Mourinho must unleash Spurs” “huge talent” who can “become one of the world”s best” – opinion

    Tottenham Hotspur’s preparations for the new campaign began over the weekend with them romping to a 3-0 victory over League One outfit Ipswich Town.

    And whilst very little can be taken from the fitness exercise, the performance of Ryan Sessegnon simply can’t be ignored. The 20-year-old delivered the opening strike early in the match and was one of only two to complete the whole match – an opportunity taken.

    Those in north London saw glimpses of why they paid an initial £25m to secure him from Fulham in 2019 when he scored their only goal of the game during a 3-1 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

    Where should Ryan Sessegnon be played at Spurs?

    Since then, it’s been reported that the north Londoners have rebuffed advances from Celtic and even Barcelona, so surely it’s time for the young Englishman to be unleashed on the Premier League.

    Where he might play very much remains to be seen but that’s the huge positive with Sessegnon – you can swap Ben Davies out for him at left-back or stick him further up the pitch as a winger.

    The potential has always been there so it is on Mourinho to hand him such chances to fulfil that promise.

    Former Cottagers teammate Stefan Johansen said three years ago that Sessegnon could “become one of the world’s best in his position,” also claiming that he’s a “huge talent” but those at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium are yet to truly see this come to fruition.

    Mourinho has even likened him to his former Chelsea mainstay Ashley Cole, he said back in November:

    “He was fantastic and Ryan has lots of similarities with Ashley [Cole], and he can learn how to defend. In the future I think he can, but in this moment he is not ready to play as a left-back.”

    Sessegnon is now valued at £22.5m and has only racked up a total of 12 appearances in the year he’s been at the club, surely this season is his time to show the Premier League exactly why he’s one for the future.

    Instead of pursuing a new left-back or left-winger this summer, the Portuguese boss ought to finally utilise one of Mauricio Pochettino’s final signings.
