July 23, 2022
Tottenham confirmed Djed Spence’s signing on Tuesday. What is crazy for him at Tottenham is that he will reunite with Ryan Sessegnon, who knew him from a young age and play with him at the age of 16. Both of them feel excited to play together on the pitch for the first time since their school days.
Djed Spence and Ryan Sessegnon have known each other since they were young. They grew up together at Fulham and went through the Fulham’s academy together. For the first four years in the same age group in academy system, they have been teammates on opposite flanks. Until the age of 16, they were playing soccer together. From that time on, they began their different soccer journeys. In 2019, Ryan joined the first team-Tottenham while Spence joined Middlesbrough in 2018 and enjoyed a wonderful season on loan at Nottingham Forest last term before signing Tottenham this week.
Now they both are Spurs players. Undoubtedly, the reunion makes them thrilled.
Ryan Sessegnon told Djed Spence to get ready to work hard and run a lot as Tottenham’s new signing begins life under Antonio Conte. Sessegnon says Spurs fans will find an ‘aggressive’, ‘attacking’ winger who seems to fit Conte’s 3-4-3 system although the Italian admits it was the club that drove the signing, not himself. same.
“It’s a crazy feeling because at 16 we were playing together,” Sessegnon said.
“I remember it was U12s to U16s and then our careers went different paths, so seeing each other now where we’re soon to be 22 is great.
“He’s a very attacking full-back or full-back. He likes to come down the right side, do crosses, he’s an aggressive and forward-thinking player, so it’s great that he’s here now.
