Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic has claimed that he is unsure about the positional future of young sensation Ryan Sessegnon.

The Cottagers have so far endured a difficult return to Premier League football and could be in line to face a difficult challenge to retain their top-flight status this season.

They are currently in 19th position on the League standings with 5 points from 10 games and above only bottom of the lot Huddersfield Town.

The 18-year-old is one of the few Cottagers players who has looked decent so far this season though he is still very young and has a lot to learn.

The youngster was also arguably his club’s best player during their recent 2-0 Carabao Cup defeat against Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Sessegnon who can play as a left back or left winger is also expected to win selection to the England squad in the near future.

Though he has been playing as a left-back during recent games, Jokanovic has admitted that he is unsure about the positional future of the possible future superstar.

As quoted by The Independent, Jokanovic said: “In this moment, Ryan has some unnecessary high responsibility because many people are focused on this man and how he is going to save the team,”

“Generally, it’s not a job for Ryan Sessegnon and this extra pressure on this man is not necessary.

“We trust him, he is a quality man and he is always available to support his team-mates. We must expect other players to support him too and in this way.

“It will be easier for us and easier for him too.”
