Antonio Conte has shared his high praise for Ryan Sessegnon, claiming the Tottenham youngster has great potential.

The Spurs boss has opened up on the 21-year-old left-back ahead of the club’s Premier League match against Arsenal.

“Ryan is a player that has great potential. Physically he is really strong and is difficult to beat in one vs one,” the manager said, via Football London.

“Defensively he has reached an important level, he showed great attention during the game. For sure he has to improve with the ball, for me wing-backs are very important, against Liverpool we had situations where we can improve in this aspect.

“Ryan is a young player and is having a good performance. This type of performance has to give him confidence in himself. We are talking about a young player with a great space for improvement. In the past injury has stopped his growth.”
