Ryan Sessegnon joined Tottenham from London rivals Fulham back in 2019, but the start to his Spurs career hasn’t gone as planned having being loaned out to Bundesliga side Hoffenheim for continual minutes on the pitch.
And the 20-year-old sitting in Germany is thinking about new managerial speculations at N17, with his former boss Scott Parker said to be one of the names in the hat. Sessegnon featured briefly under Fulham’s boss when he took charge initially in2019, and rates him very eminently.
Although Parker is not an immediate target, he is one of the personnel Daniel Levy & Co. are keeping tabs on.
Ryan Sessegnon was asked about having his former gaffer at Spurs amid the ongoing rumours on TALKSport: “That would be very good! Everyone knows the relationship I have with Scott. He’s a top guy, top man and a top coach. He’s just an all-round great guy. I played with him in his last season I think in professional football and my first. He’s someone that has obviously always believed in me as well.
“They [Fulham] have got fantastic results against some of the big teams where other teams wouldn’t have thought they would get those type of points. Scott has got them playing the right type of football; that’s what I admire about him.
“He obviously has a philosophy of play and sticks to it and all the players are buying into that. Recently, it hasn’t been so good for them in terms of results, but I think the performances and effort is still there.”
Scott Parker has done astonishingly well at Fulham, bringing them back up from the Championship last season via the play-offs just the year after relegation, and played some admiring football in Fulham’s return to the top flight. With The Cottagers needing some interesting results to make sure Craven Cottage stays a Premier League stadium cometh the next season – it will be gripping to see what happens with Parker in the summer.
His track record suggests that Fulham will stick with him, and despite his Charismatic presence on the sidelines – there is still a long way for Scott. Perhaps, Tottenham should admire him from the distance at this point.
