Jose Mourinho has revealed that the likes of Ryan Sessegnon, Giovani Lo Celso and Juan Foyth will have to wait until the end of December before they get their chance to play in the first-team.

Sessegnon hasn’t featured in a matchday squad since Mourinho took over from Mauricio Pochettino and his late cameo against Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League last month remains his only appearance since making the deadline day switch across London from Fulham.

Meanwhile, prior to Pochettino’s sacking, Foyth started to work his way into the team and started the home game against the Serbian’s before also featuring against both Sheffield United and Everton in November. He was then on the bench at West Ham, but was left out in the last few matches – with a number of senior players clearly above him in the pecking order.

As for Lo Celso, his late showing against Bournemouth on Saturday was his only minutes under the new regime, which has led to reports in Spain about him leaving Tottenham.

Mourinho said: “There are other players that I like very, very much and I try to give some stability to the team and there is no space for everyone, so we look to other boys.

“Ryan Sessegnon, Lo Celso, Walker-Peters, we have other players with potential to play that they didn’t have yet the opportunity to play. I would say let’s wait for the end of December for the accumulation of matches and for sure opportunities will come.”



  1. Moura, Dier & Sanches are not playing to their true potencial Why don’t Maurinho give Lo Celso, Foyth & Sessegnon a run for a few games
    to see which combination will work better for him The last 2 league games Spurs were on a high leading 3-0 only to give away goals for lapse of
    concentration by the midfielders & defence

  2. one thing you cant lay at Roses door is lack of effort, he always gives his all, albeit of late his standards have dropped, not sure is Sessegnon is
    the answer, more of more forward player, but give him a run of games.

  3. Why change what is working. We do have training sessions. If not first choice there why take a chance in a game .it’s called work for your place or lose it

  4. It’s a shame that neither Jose or Poch, have given Foyth much playing time. He is a beast of a right back, where most of our troubles lie. His performances for Argentina showed that he has evolved quickly and deserves to be on the pitch.

  5. I agree that foyth could turn out to be our best right back. But aurrier is awesome last 3 games and offers more in attack. Even if he’s bit unpredictable at the back. Lo celso and sessegnon have to get a game over Christmas time. Just have to wait , while team winning why change it.
