Tottenham boss Conte: Sessegnon start reward for training effort

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte says a start tonight for Ryan Sessegnon is reward for his training ground efforts.

Sessegnon will start against Europa Conference League opponents NS Mura.

Conte said: "Ryan in my opinion has great potential. We have seen in the past he suffered a lot of injuries.

"Now we're trying to work in the right way with him. With this type of player, it's very important during training to push your engine to a high level and have good training sessions.

"In this way you're trained during the game to bring high intensity and level of performance. We're working with him for the past two weeks, now he's ready to start the game tomorrow.

"And yeah, I can't wait to see his performance because he's a talented player, very young with great space for improvement.

"Now it's important to give him regularity to try to avoid injury and give him the chance to be available for every game."
