“Just hasn’t worked out for him” – Tottenham urged to sell player who Conte really liked

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham expert John Wenham has advocated for the club to part ways with Ryan Sessegnon this summer, following yet another season plagued by injuries for the midfielder.

Once regarded as a promising prospect for Spurs, Sessegnon’s career trajectory has been hindered by a series of setbacks on the injury front, preventing him from realising his full potential on the pitch.

The 23-year-old has endured a lengthy spell on the sidelines, spanning nearly 11 months since February of the previous year.

His latest setback came after making a brief return to action, playing just 37 minutes for the Tottenham U21 side before succumbing to another hamstring injury, necessitating surgery and ruling him out for an additional three months.

Multiple reports have claimed that the club could sell him, with Dan Kilpatrick recently stating that the player who Conte really liked is likely to be sold.

With Sessegnon’s ongoing struggles prompting speculation about his future at Spurs, including reports suggesting the possibility of a sale, Wenham has proposed that it may be time for the player and the club to part ways.

Speaking to Tottenham News, Wenham emphasised the need for a fresh start for Sessegnon, suggesting that a change of scenery could be beneficial for both parties.

Wenham highlighted the recurrent nature of Sessegnon’s injuries during his time at Tottenham, indicating that it may be in the club’s best interest to facilitate his departure as part of their ongoing rebuild.

He said:

“I believe the best thing Tottenham can do is release Sessegnon while allowing him to continue training at Hotspur Way.

“I’m sure another Premier League club will take him on, but I just think he needs a change of scenery and a fresh start.

“It just hasn’t worked out for him with these constant injuries at Tottenham, and it would be a big step in the club’s rebuild if they were to let him go.

“Some supporters have suggested to me we should renew his contract, but what’s the point?

“He could get fit again, but he would only be getting fit to move on in a year or two instead.”
