Ryan Sessegnon has claimed it would be “very good” if Scott Parker was named as Tottenham’s next boss. Spurs have been linked with a host of different managers after the axe of Jose Mourinho.
Parker, who played for the Lilywhites, has been linked with the vacancy, after impressing many with his style of play at Fulham. And Sessegnon knows all about Parker from their time together at Craven Cottage and has heaped praise on his former teammate and manager.
“That would be very good,” he told talkSPORT in an exclusive interview when asked about Parker potentially becoming Spurs’ next boss.
“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.
“They [Fulham] have got fantastic results against some of the big teams where other teams wouldn’t have thought they would get those type of points. Scott has got them playing the right type of football; that’s what I admire about him.
“He obviously has a philosophy of play and sticks to it and all the players are buying into that. Recently, it hasn’t been so good for them in terms of results, but I think the performances and effort is still there.
“I hope they [Fulham] still get out of the situation they are in and stay up, of course. Like you say, it’s a club that is very close to me and I hope that they do it.”
Currently on loan in the Bundesliga with Hoffenheim, Sessegnon will return to Hotspur Way in the summer after a year away in Germany.
