Daniel Levy wants new Tottenham boss to give first-team chances to Ryan Sessegnon and Oliver Skipp
According to The Telegraph [subscription required], Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy is intent on the club’s new manager to give youngsters Oliver Skipp and Ryan Sessegnon chances in the first-team next season.
Tottenham have been on the lookout for a new manager since April when Jose Mourinho was shown the doors by Mourinho. However, the search for the next permanent head coach has been quite a frustrating one for the club as well as the fans.
Indeed, Tottenham tried and failed to appoint the likes of Julian Nagelsmann, Hansi Flick, Mauricio Pochettino and Antonio Conte. However, as per the latest developments, that trend may be set to change as Paulo Fonseca is now the front-runner to become the next Spurs boss. (h/t The Telegraph)
And Levy, as per the report, is intent on the Portuguese tactician giving chances to two of Tottenham’s promising young talents in Oliver Skipp and Ryan Sessegnon.
Skipp, a product of the Tottenham academy, spent the last season away on loan at Norwich City in the Championship. The English midfielder played a starring role in the Canaries’ promotion back to the Premier League. The 20-year-old featured in 45 league games, scoring one goal and setting up two more.
Sessegnon, meanwhile, has been on Tottenham’s books since 2019 having signed from London rivals Fulham. However, having endured a difficult debut campaign in 2019/20, the versatile left-back was loaned out to Bundesliga club TSG Hoffenheim, where he impressed. In 29 appearances for the German outfit, the 21-year-old produced a return of two goals and three assists.
