What happened to Ryan Sessegnon?

Ryan Sessegnon's career has gone through a rollercoaster of a ride, going from mid-table obscurity in the Championship at Fulham, to starring and getting promoted, and then getting a dream move to Tottenham.

However, to say that his career has taken a hit since joining Spurs is an understatement. Ever since joining the club this season, the young Englishman has failed to nail down a spot in the team, featuring in just 12 games in all competitions this season.

Yes he had a hamstring injury at the start of the season, but even afterwards he couldn't find a way to nail down a place in an underperforming Spurs side. To make this worse, most of his appearances have come from off of the bench.

This is a direct contrast with his time at Fulham, where has was the star of the show ever since he emerged from the club's academy to play in the Championship at the age of just 16.

Over the course of his two seasons in the Championship, he showed that he was a level above all of the others, scoring 20 goals and providing nine assists in 71 Championship games, a feat that is very impressive for a player of his age. He featured in the Championship team of the season for both of these seasons.

He also starred in the 2017/18 playoffs, scoring one and assisting twice as Fulham were promoted to the Premier League.

His season in the Premier League with Fulham was quite underwhelming, but had sparks of potential. Sessegnon managed just two goals and six assists, but considering that this was for a side that was crashing back down to the Championship, it is still impressive.

Fast forward to this season, where he has been rotated in positions between left-midfield and left-back, and with Spurs eventually getting a player that was more suited to their style in Steven Bergwijn.

Sessegnon's only high point seems to be his goal in the UEFA Champions League against Bayern Munich, yet that also seems to sum up his time at Spurs, with it being a 3-1 defeat.

Whatever happens to his career, Sessegnon will be gutted to have wasted this season on the injury table.
