What Guinness World Record does Tottenham’s Ryan Sessegnon hold? Oliver Skipp guesses wrong

Sessegnon set for Spurs exit as injury-hit spell comes to an end

Tottenham star Ryan Sessegnon holds a Guinness World Record that Oliver Skipp could not guess

On 27 May 2019, Tottenham star Ryan Sessegnon on England U21 duties, achieved the Guinness World Record title for ‘Fastest time to hit both football goal posts and crossbar’, doing so in just 7.75 seconds.

Filming a video for the England National Football Team alongside Dean Henderson and Jake Clarke-Salter in their attempt to break as many Guinness World Records as they can, Sess could achieve this.

Even from a non-footballing perspective, holding a World Record is surely a big flex. Sess’ team-mates Oliver Skipp and Ben Davies sat for media duties with ITV Sport recently and faced a question on who they think might hold a Guinness World Record within the Tottenham squad. They guessed Eric Dier which is not right.

Sessegnon recently returned to action after a long spell on the sidelines due to injury. In the bit-part he played against Burnley, he brought a lot of energy off the bench and was close to scoring as well. It was his first game under Ange Postecoglou.

World Record Holder

The player has recently seen himself linked with a move to Manchester United, and that’s as we call it these days, a red flag. There’s no need for Sess to leave a high-flying Tottenham team to join a rather struggling United side.

Moreover, his style of play suits Ange Postecoglou. As he continues to feature more and more under the Australian tactician, he would realise the same. The team’s upward trajectory, coupled with Sessegnon’s evolving role and compatibility with Postecoglou’s tactics, makes a compelling case for him to continue donning the Lilywhite jersey.

Departing for a struggling side like Manchester United might not align with Sessegnon’s best interests at this crucial juncture of his career at 23.

With captain Son Heung-min out for AFC Asian Cup duties, it opens the door for Sessegnon to make a strong case for himself to start more often.
