Sessegnon betrays Conte in Spurs defeat

Tottenham Hotspur face an embarrassing evening in Slovenia in the final group game of the Europa Conference League.

Antonio Conte recorded his first loss since taking over Nuno Santo when his side were excruciatingly beaten by NS Mura in the final minutes of the game.

Tommy Horvat fired a world-class opener from a distance for the home side after just 11 minutes before Spurs full-back Ryan Sessegnon received his orders for two catastrophic and hasty yellow cards up to the 31st minute.

The Italian made big changes in the second half and it seemed to have paid off when his two substitutes Lucas Moura and Harry Kane met to equalize in the 72nd minute.

Did Sessegnon let Spurs down in Slovenia?

Absolutely!

Absolutely!

Under no circumstance!

Under no circumstance!

But with seconds on the clock, Amadej Marosa was driving Spurs’ messy backline through to sentence them to a shocking, shocking loss.

Sessegnon, who was heavily talked about by Conte while the game was being set up, let the manager and his side down with his unpredictable short-lived performance.

“I can’t wait to see his performance because he’s a talented player, very young and has plenty of room for improvement,” the 52-year-old told reporters at his press conference.

There were many superlatives with which his red card was described by the press, from “insane“From football.londons Alasdair Gold to”stupid“From Dan Kilpatrick of the Evening Standard, but perhaps the most accurate is from The Athletic’s Charlie Ecclesshare who claimed it was”really unnecessary. “

Indeed it was. And the 21-year-old jewel will do everything to convince his manager that he can be trusted again in this campaign.

According to SofaScore, Sessegnon was given a miserable 5.1 rating – by far the worst of all players on the pitch – and during his 36 minutes he made only eight passes and 16 touches, less than even goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini (19 passes, 25 touches). ).

He also lost 80% of his five duels, which shows how much he struggled with the little Slovenian minnows.

After the English U21 international talked so much before kick-off and was then named a starter a few days in advance, he left Conte very much in the lurch so it would be a surprise to see him back soon.

An absolute nightmare and disaster evening for the young boy.
