Ryan Sessegnon and Oliver Skipp nominated for the European Golden Boy award

As reported by Tuttosport (h/t Football.london), Tottenham youngsters Ryan Sessegnon and Oliver Skipp have been named in the 100-man shortlist for the prestigious European Golden Boy award.

The award was established in 2003 by Tuttosport, with frontline publications from across Europe such as The Times, Bild, L’Equipe taking part in the voting. The honour aims to recognise the best young talent in the continent.

The likes of Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero, Mario Gotze, Anthony Martial, Raheem Sterling and Kylian Mbappe have all won the award in the past. And for the 2020 nominations, two of Tottenham’s brightest young players, Sessegnon and Skipp, have been nominated.

This is not Sessegnon’s first nomination, with the 20-year-old also having been shortlisted during his time at Fulham. The Englishman has had a slow start to life at Tottenham since making the move last summer, with injuries hampering his progress.

So far in 2019/20, Sessegnon has made just 12 appearances across all competitions, producing a return of one goal and assist each, both of which came in the Champions League.

Skipp, on the other hand, is a product of the Tottenham academy. The 19-year-old midfielder broke into the first-team last season under Mauricio Pochettino and has gone on to make 20 appearances for the club so far, producing two assists.

Skipp has enjoyed a show of confidence from current manager Jose Mourinho, with him being part of the starting XI in back to back matches against Norwich City (FA Cup) and Burnley (PL) in March. He has featured eight times in all this season.
