Ryan Sessegnon explains the mental and physical work he did this summer
Tottenham Hotspur wing-back Ryan Sessegnon has explained the mental and physical work he went through in the summer to give his all for his side this season.
Speaking to the club’s official matchday programme (h/t Football. London), the 22-year-old claimed that delivering consistent performance week in and out is the biggest challenge for him.
“For me to play as many games as l can this year, I had to go away and work on myself. In terms of the work I have been doing away from the club, I worked on the physical side, just making sure that my body was ready to play as many games as possible this season. And mentally as well, (with the injuries) it hasn’t been easy. So, I worked on that, the mental side of the game, as well.”
The 22-year-old joined the north London club in 2019 from Fulham. The England Under-21 international has been a fringe player for the club since then and even spent the 2020/21 season on loan at TSG Hoffenheim.
However, this season under Antonio Conte, things have been different for the 22-year-old. He has played 10 games so far in all competitions, starting in six of them and has been excellent in all of them.
Ivan Perisic is his main competition in the left wing-back position, but the way the England Under-21 international has been playing, it will be interesting to see who between the two plays the most games by the end of this season.
