Sessegnon Shines for Cottagers

Sessegnon Shines for Cottagers

Fulham Boss Slavisa Jokanovic hailed teenage starlet Ryan Sessegnon after the left-back bagged a stoppage-time equaliser to rescue a point in a 1-1 draw against Burton Albion on Tuesday night.

The 16-year-old became the youngest scorer in Championship history when he netted the opening goal of a 2-2 stalemate with Cardiff in August and he doubled his career tally when he pounced from close range to produce a dramatic finale, retaining Fulham’s play-off place.

“I try to protect him. He is only 16 and a few months,” Jokanovic said. “We feel he has a very happy, bright future in front of him.

“We believe right now he is prepared for this level and for Fulham. Always when I give him a chance he performs enough to prove me right.”

The England Under-17 international who only started his apprenticeship at the club this summer has enjoyed a meteoric rise to prominence, appearing in four league games this season to become the only Championship player born in the 21st century.

And his impressive performances have reportedly attracted interest from the country’s biggest clubs, including Manchester United, Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham and Liverpool, while earning comparisons to Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale.
