Ex-Fulham prospect Sessegnon backing Parker for Tottenham job

Ryan Sessegnon would be delighted if Fulham boss Scott Parker became the new manager of Tottenham Hotspur.

The 20-year-old signed for Spurs from Fulham in 2019 and is currently on loan at German club Hoffenheim.

"That would be very good!" Sessegnon told talkSPORT about the potential hiring of Parker.

"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."

And Sessegnon added that he was excited to have a fresh start when he returns to Spurs this summer.

"In some ways, I haven't even really got going at Spurs. It's been stop-start since I've been there," Sessegnon added.

"I got there [to Spurs] and [Mauricio] Pochettino was there. I just came back from injury and then he got sacked and Mourinho came in and then I got sent on loan.

"It's been hectic and stop and start. Like you say, it's a fresh start for me to go back and show what I can do."
