England Tactical Analysis News Opinion

Ryan Sessegnon has been busy since firing the Cottagers to the Premier League last season.

The Fulham star has bulked up in the summer, putting on a stone of muscle to deal with the rigours of top-flight football.

What a year it has been for the Fulham sensation.

The England Under-21 International defied his younger years as he tore the Championship to pieces in 2017-18.

His fine form has seen him nominated for BBC’s Young Sports Personality of the Year award.

With the season he had, you’d think he was the finished article already.

Well, unless you’re Ryan Sessegnon that is.

The forward has been spending hours bulking up in the gym so he can cope with the demands of the Premier League.

And after a quiet start to life in the Premier League thus far, he now feels he’s ready to cope with the challenge.

He said:

“I’ve been getting in the gym a lot this season.”
“I feel bigger, I feel faster, I feel stronger. You can see in some of the games, my speed has got me out of a bit of trouble.”
“I knew I was going to be playing in the Premier League, obviously watching it, it’s very physical in the position I play and you need to be strong.”

Sessegnon has also changed his diet to improve his physical strength.

He said:

“We do yoga once a fortnight. I’ve also improved the way I eat.”
“I don’t eat raw eggs or have steak for breakfast, nothing like that.”
