Manchester United tracking wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon’s Fulham progress – report

by Leo Nieboer

Jose Mourinho is keeping an eye on the progress of 16-year-old wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon, according to reports.

The left back, who has six caps for the England Under 16s, made his Championship debut against Leeds earlier this month, and recently became division’s youngest ever scorer after netting against Cardiff City.

Sessegnon’s energy, technical skill and confidence at such a young age has attracted attention from all corners of the Premier League.

According to the Mail Online’s Jack Gaughan, United have been watching the Englishman closely, but have been informed by the Cottagers the player is not for sale.

At just 16, Sessegnon possesses an astonishing amount tenacity and strength, alongside his natural attributes of composure and speed on the ball. The Championship is, to say the least, a brutal environment in which to develop, and can ultimately add steel and grittiness to a player’s development.

However, whilst the early signs are undoubtedly positive, it is important to remember that placing too much pressure and expectations on a youngster’s shoulders can be counter-productive.
