Danny Mills has warned Ryan Sessegnon that he must find consistency if he wants to feature more regularly for Tottenham next season.
The former England international, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, urged the 20-year-old to prove to Jose Mourinho “that he is reliable” after an underwhelming start to his time in North London.
Sessegnon played the full 90 minutes yesterday as Spurs began their preseason campaign with a 3-0 win over Ipswich and the left-winger scored the opener after just six minutes.

The England Under-21 international, who can also play at left-back, struggled for game time at Spurs after his £24million arrival from Fulham 12 months ago.
He made 12 appearances in all competitions, of which only six came in the Premier League.
When asked by Football Insider if he expected Jose Mourinho to hand the left-footer a bigger role next season, Mills said: “He has got to prove that he is reliable.
“That is always the case with younger players. You get a move because of your ability but it is then about doing that week in, week out. He has to be consistent.
“You have got to be seven or eight out of 10 every single week. Managers do not like inconsistency. The manager needs to find a level of trust in a player. If Sessegnon can find that consistency then he will play.”
Sessegnon still has five years left on his contract at Spurs after he put pen to paper on a six-year deal last August.
The London-born wide-man rose up the ranks at Fulham’s academy before making the switch across London.
