Former Fulham man Leroy Rosenior believes that Ryan Sessegnon needs to be patient with his career but reckons the sky is the limit for the youngster.
The 16-year-old is turning heads at Craven Cottage this season and his performances are attracting attention of some of the biggest clubs in the country, including both Manchester sides, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham.
He added further value to his rising stock with two goals at league leaders Newcastle on Saturday, showing composure well behind his years that even had Geordie legend Alan Shearer talking about him.
Rosenior, who was talking to Bwin , believes that the rewards will come for Sessegnon but he needs to be patient, insisting Fulham is the perfect club for him at the moment.
He said: "At 16, people say it’s down to him. In my opinion he needs as much help as possible – he has unbelievable potential at that age and he can really choose his destiny.
"What’s really pleasing it that he’s at the right place for him, in the right environment, and he needs to continue to develop at Fulham.
"You look at the likes of Paul Parker and Dean Coney, who developed brilliantly at Fulham.
"Fulham isn’t a club that naturally attracts the limelight, so it’s the perfect club for him to get his head down and continue to work without all the media pressure.
"Sometimes the wrong move can really hurt your career, look at John Bostock. He was at a great club that developed good players and left too early.
"Ryan needs to be reminded that the rewards will come in time, you don’t get everything upfront. The more patient you are, the more you are rewarded."
Rosenior spoke to Bwin about Slavisa Jokanovic, Sessegnon and his new book, 'It's Only Banter' and you can read the rest of the interview here.
