Claudio Ranieri has hailed English starlet Ryan Sessegnon as one of the best young players he has ever met.
The left-back turned winger featured in one of the games of the week on Saturday, recording two assists as Fulham defeated Southampton 3-2 in what was Ranieri's first game in charge. That victory brought to an end a run of six consecutive defeats for the Cottagers.
Former Leicester City boss Ranieri was wax lyrical about the 18 year-old following the win, praising his ability and footballing I.Q.
"He’s a young player with a lot of qualities," the Italian said according to the Evening Standard.
"He must be exuberant and strong. But I saw him for the first time, for me he’s very intelligent. He will improve a lot.
"He’s a young boy, a new manager has arrived. 'What happened?'
"Everybody wants to show their best. He’s a child. It’s not easy for him but I’m very happy and pleased with his performance."
Sessegnon has scored only a single goal for Fulham since their promotion from the EFL Championship, a far cry from the 16 he managed last season under recently sacked manager
