The Italian tactician took over a struggling Tottenham side from Nuno Espirito Santo in November and led Spurs to a fourth-place finish, earning Champions League qualification.


Sessegnon was injured when Conte came in, but after recovering, the 21-year-old managed to rack up 15 Premier League appearances, being trusted in a wing-back role.



The player revealed that Conte made the injured players watch tactical sessions so that they could get used to his style and admitted that he and his team-mates were not entirely fit when the Italian came in.


Sessegnon praised the Tottenham boss for his detailed tactical sessions and stressed that for the first time in his career he knows what to do on and off the ball.



“I was injured when he first came in November last season.


“He makes the injured players watch the tactical sessions and I was the first to sit aside and watch the way he wants us to play”, Sessegnon was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.


“Then you go and do your physical stuff – they are long days.


“As a team, I don’t think we were really fit and he made us run a lot. I knew when I came back that I had to be ready for the levels.



“The way he wants us to play… Everyone knows how intense the Premier League is.


“It’s been difficult trying to put in different ideas that different gaffers want.


“Now the gaffer is very detailed, we have a lot of tactical meetings and sessions.


“He is very clear on what he wants.


“It’s probably the first time in my Spurs career that I know what to do with and without the ball in a situation where the formation is clear.”


The 21-year-old has featured in six games for Tottenham this season and racked up a goal against Southampton on the opening weekend.
