Ryan Sessegnon intent on proving he is a Jose Mourinho player
The young Englishman joined Tottenham in the summer last year from Fulham. However, injuries and a lack of game time under Jose Mourinho meant it was a difficult initiation to life at the highest level for him.
Following the signing of Sergio Reguilon in the summer, Sessegnon fell further down the pecking order at the club, which led to him leaving on loan.
The 20-year-old signed for Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim, where he has done rather well for himself thus far. In eight league games, the England youth international has scored one goal and set up two more.
Having struggled for game time last term, there had been questions raised whether he is cut out to be in a Jose Mourinho team. And Sessegnon has insisted that he intends to prove all those doubters wrong. (h/t Sky Sports)
“There are those people that are saying maybe not yet, but my aim is to prove people wrong. I think I can be a Jose player, of course. It’s all about learning and I will try and go back and push into the team.”
The left-back also revealed that Mourinho had been in touch with him, sending messages of encouragement after matches. (h/t Sky Sports)
“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.”
