Football League World’s Fulham fan pundit Charles Jones has given his verdict on Steven Sessegnon’s start to the season, with the youngster having made the right back spot his own this campaign.
The 19-year-old right back has really followed in the footsteps of his twin brother Ryan, with both players having progressed through the youth ranks in west London to break into the first team set up at Craven Cottage, resulting in Ryan departing the club this summer for pastures new at Tottenham Hotspur.
Steven Sessegnon has now established himself as one of the brightest young full backs in English football, making eight appearances for the Championship side this season, and it is perhaps unsurprising that Jones was quick to wax lyrical about the youngster’s performances this term, with our fan pundit stating:
“Steven Sessegnon’s best quality is probably the maturity he shows in his game, with it being there for all to see this season.
“He never looks panicked on the ball and he seems to know where to be at the right time, whether he’s keeping in line at the back or deciding to make an overlapping run.
“His crossing ability also has to be admired, but the fact that he’s so mature at a young age gives him a great foundation to build on.”
Has Steven Sessegnon impressed you this term?
Given the fact that Ryan Sessegnon was well known for his versatility during his time at Craven Cottage, Jones was quick to comment on Steven’s best position, with our fan pundit saying:
“I’d say he’s definitely best suited at right-back, unlike his brother he doesn’t go forward and score all that often, and he’s much more of a traditional full-back than his twin.
“He’s still got a lot to learn in that role, but that’s where I think he’ll end up playing for the rest of his career.”
Given the solid showings that he has put in so far, it would be unsurprising to see Sessegnon continue to hold down the right back spot this term, particularly with Fulham lacking any real competition for the role this term.
