Ryan Sessegnon backed to come back stronger from his hamstring injury nightmare

A medical expert has expressed confidence that Tottenham defender Ryan Sessegnon will recover well from his latest hamstring surgery.

Tottenham‘s Ryan Sessegnon underwent surgery on his right hamstring on Monday following a muscle injury he sustained while playing for Spurs’ Under-21s on February 17.

This marks the second time Sessegnon has undergone surgery in the past year, with the previous operation in July being on his left hamstring.

The former Fulham player has faced challenges with muscle injuries in recent seasons. However, Sessegnon mentioned in an Instagram post that his left hamstring now feels “strong,” expressing hope that this surgery on his right hamstring will resolve previous recurring issues.

Sports scientist Dr Rajpal Brar said: “He still has plenty of time right? It is just one of those things with injury cycles or muscular injuries where it can be really tough to get out of, even for more developed players.

“There has certainly been cases where other players have got into it (injury cycles) and got out of it. It is not by any means a death knell for his career or anything.

“He has plenty of time and the key will be some methodical rehab, then some good fortune so you have to hope for the best.

“He has more time to build back and there is also not as much pressure to get back than say a 29- or 30-year-old who is angling to get back to play and get a new contract or whatever it is, whereas it is different for a younger player.”

Sessegnon looks to get back to his Fulham form

Sessegnon hasn’t been in Tottenham’s starting lineup since last January, following his absence in the second half of the 2022-23 campaign due to a hamstring injury.

In July, a decision was made to operate on Sessegnon’s left hamstring, keeping the one-time England Under-21 international out of action for several months.

His cameo appearance against Burnley in the FA Cup last month marked his first outing under manager Ange Postecoglou before facing another injury setback during a Premier League 2 match against West Ham.

Surgery on Sessegnon’s right hamstring was deemed necessary, and Dr. Brar, based in Los Angeles and running the 3cb Performance rehab center, has suggested that the full-back is expected to return for pre-season.
