Tottenham’s summer signings have struggled to make the most of their first season in the Premier League.
Meanwhile, Jack Clarke has largely failed to get many minutes under his belt at Leeds United and QPR, and Ryan Sessegnon has struggled for consistency this season.
Sessegnon seemed destined for greatness two years ago, but his career has taken a downturn ever since he arrived at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The former Fulham starlet has only made six appearances in the Premier League all season.
According to Alasdair Gold, Mourinho sees some similarities with Ashley Cole, although he is reluctant to rely upon him in the defence.
To compound his problems even further, he was dropped in favour of young left-back Dennis Cirkin, who was on the bench at home to Everton.
Gold revealed that the Portuguese admires the 18-year-old, which could be bad news for Sessegnon in the long-term.
With only five games left to play in the league, his chances of starting are looking even more remote, as Ben Davies has started every game since football returned last month, which means he will have to take every opportunity he gets to prove his worth.
Competition for places is always healthy and he is surely too talented to go to waste at Tottenham. But the emergence of Cirkin could mean he is now third choice left-back.
However, it is worth remembering Mourinho sold Adnan Januzaj as he failed to live up to his full potential during his time in charge of Manchester United.
While Sessegnon signed a six-year-deal when he moved to north London last summer, he will not want to suffer a similar fate next season.
Tottenham fans, do you think Mourinho should give Sessegnon another shot? Let us know down below!
