Fulham star Ryan Sessegnon has revealed the club he used to support as a child and who he used to wear on the back of his shirt.

When you’re playing in the Premier League at 18-years-old, there isn’t much time to support a team.

But speaking with Match of the Day Magazine, Ryan Sessegnon has opened up on his childhood.

The England Under-21 international has revealed that Liverpool were the club he used to follow.

When asked if he wore a Reds shirt he admitted into having one former star on the back: “Gerrard!”

Luckily for Sessegnon, being a part of England’s youth squads enabled him to meet his hero.

“I have met him. I was [starstruck], I met him at St George’s park and he was giving me tips for my career,” he added.

The left-sided player signed his first professional contract with Fulham when he was 17.

Manager Slavisa Jokanovic has helped him become a fan’s favourite at Craven Cottage.

The Serbian has deployed the young star at either left-back or left midfielder, positions he hasn’t always played throughout his career.

“I played all over the place at that age [10]. I think I was a striker actually. But yeah, as I’ve progressed I’ve changed everywhere,” said Sessegnon.

He also refused to rule out playing as a striker again in the future, adding: “Maybe one day, yeah!”

Sessegnon has a twin brother at Fulham, Steven and admitted that it’s helped him throughout his career.

“I think when you’re young you always want someone to play with and we had that competitive edge, especially in the younger age groups in the academy,” he said.

“We always wanted to see who was better. It’s changed a little now – we’re more supportive of each other, but growing up you wanted to see who was the better player.”
