Sunderland fans make it easy to play for the club says Sessegnon

Sunderland hero Stephane Sessegnon has revealed that the loyal fans of the club make his job on the pitch a lot easier than usual.

The Benin international has emerged as a star with the Black Cats this season after finding his feet following his move from Paris Saint-Germain in January last year and he puts a lot of his recent personal - and team - success down to the Mackem faithful.

"It's great the support there is at this football club, it has given me great pleasure to keep winning for them," he told the Evening Chronicle.

"They always come in massive numbers and go crazy with every goal. Their enthusiasm for the club is unbelievable. They have played a big part in our success recently."
