Something tells us Ryan Sessegnon is going to need a bigger mantelpiece after the Fulham youngster swept the board at Sunday night’s EFL Awards, picking up no less than five awards.

The 17-year-old left-back-turned-winger has scored 14 goals and notched six assists for the Cottagers so far this season, with the club very much in contention for an automatic promotion place.

Last week, Sessegnon became the first player ever from outside the top flight to be nominated for the PFA Young Player of the Year Award, and then followed up by being named Championship Player of the Year just a few days later.

As well as the big prize, the teenager was also named EFL Young Player of the Year, as well as the Championship Apprentice of the Year, as well as being named in both the EFL Team of the Season and the EFL Club-Developed XI of the Season.


The Football League congratulated Sessegnon on his remarkable haul using this seizure-inducing message…

Wolves fans (and many neutrals) will probably feel that Ruben Neves has been robbed in the Championship Player of the Year stakes, but that still shouldn’t detract from Sessegnon’s truly amazing ascension.

The Portuguese midfielder did make it into the combined EFL Team of the Year (as voted for by EFL managers), alongside Sessegnon…

At least that’s something, right?
