Ryan Sessegnon: Players' first day at Tottenham after signing
Tottenham winger Ryan Sessegnon has lifted the lid on his communication with Spurs players while he’s out on loan at Hoffenheim. Sessegnon left Spurs on a one-year loan this summer after falling out of favour under Jose Mourinho.
Sessegnon has looked impressive while out on loan at Hoffenheim.
The youngster, who joined Spurs from Fulham in 2019 for £30million, failed to have much of an impact in his debut season.
He played just six times in the Premier League for Tottenham, and was unable to properly make his mark in north London.
After the arrival of Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid this summer, it seemed Sessegnon would have little chance of game time this season.
With his contract at Spurs running until 2025, Tottenham officials are still confident about his potential.
As a result, he was allowed to leave on loan, with Hoffenheim taking him for the year.
He’s looked impressive in the Bundesliga, and has scored once and provided two assists in eight games.
But it seems he’s still in contact with his old team-mates, as he revealed to Football Daily that he’s been left in the Spurs WhatsApp group and is good friends with his team-mates.
Sessegnon said: “I’m still in the group chat for Tottenham, actually.
“Eric Dier, Dele Alli, Steven Bergwijn, a lot of the players still keep in contact.
“Me and Eric keep very close, if there’s one person if I ever needed to talk he’s the person I’d talk to.”
He also discussed his relationship with Mourinho, who it seems is keeping a close eye on his development.
Speaking to Sky Sports, he said Mourinho keeps in contact with him despite him not being in the club’s Premier League or Europa League squads.
He said: “The gaffer Jose (Mourinho) sends me a message now and again after games.
“When I scored he said, ‘good goal carry on’, a little motivational message.”
Sessegnon also insisted he wants to fight for his place in the Spurs side next season.
He said: “That’s the aim. That is why I am here, to get more experience, more games in a top league and then come back and be ready to play games next year with Spurs.”
