‘I can’t wait to get going with City’ - Sessegnon

An excited Steven Sessegnon is looking forward to enjoying his football as he embarks on a season-long loan in BS3.

He became the latest player to tour the Ashton Gate roof on Monday (September 7th), as has become the norm for new announcements at the club.

The 20-year-old right-back, on loan from Fulham, is keen to get going in his new surroundings and he is already looking forward to seeing supporters back in the stands when it is safe to do so.

“It took a while but I’m happy to be here,” Sessegnon said. “It’s an exciting team with brilliant players and with how the league looks this year I don’t see why we can’t be up there, I’m looking forward to getting going.

“I want to thank the supporters for having me and I can’t wait to get going. When the time comes I can’t wait to see them fill up the stadium, make the noises they make and see the Cider Army!

“He (Dean Holden) told me his plans and I look forward to it. It’s an exciting setup here, I think I will have fun and enjoy my football.”

He is also reunited with Assistant Head Coaches Paul Simpson and Keith Downing, both of whom have worked with Sessegnon during his involvement with the England youth teams in recent years.

“I spent about a year each with them and each time with them on England trips I enjoyed it. I always looked forward to seeing them so I’m excited to work with them again,” he said.

And if there’s one thing the England Under-21 international wants to achieve while with the Robins, it’s add another promotion to his already impressive CV.

“I had it in my first season with the [Fulham] first team (2017/18)  and again last season. I look at the [Bristol City] squad this year and it’s a brilliant club with brilliant players so I don’t see why not.

“I learnt a lot in both promotions with two sets of teams. For different reasons I experienced playing and being at the back of the room, but both were brilliant promotion campaigns and ones I won’t forget.”
