Grounded Ryan Sessegnon Washed And Ironed His Kit After Game This Season

Grounded Ryan Sessegnon Washed And Ironed His Kit After Game This Season

Ryan Sessegnon may be a recently turned 18-year old footballing phenomenon but clearly he remains a polite, well-grounded young chap.

The Fulham star has played an integral role in firing the Cottagers to the Championship play-off final against Aston Villa, having netted 16 goals and chipped in with seven assists for Slaviša Jokanović's side.

Named in the PFA Team of the Year, as well as being the first Championship player to be nominated for the PFA Young Player of the Year award after his sensational exploits from the left flanks, the England youngster has a whole host of Premier League clubs keeping tabs on him.

Yet while he's one of the most exciting talents in world football, Sessegnon showed he's still humble and down to earth after a game this season.

Speaking at an AGM meeting ahead of Saturday's play-off final, Fulham CEO Alistair Mackintosh revealed that Sessegnon had to undergo a doping test straight after a night game in the current campaign.

By the time the test was complete, the kitman had gone home along with the rest of the staff. But being the top kid he is, Sessegnon took his kit home with him, washed and ironed it and returned it the following day at training.

What a hero. With his sensational talents on the pitch, as well as an admirable attitude off it, Sessegnon has everything going for him and can go all the way the top.

After scoring the opener and setting up the winner in the play-off semi-final second leg against Derby, he'll be looking to do the business in his Wembley debut on Saturday.
