Charlton boss Garner believes there is a lot more to come from ‘really talented’ Fulham loanee

Charlton Athletic boss Ben Garner believes there is a lot more to come from Fulham loanee Steven Sessegnon.

The full-back, who has featured at left-back and left midfield under Garner, has made nine League One appearances during his time at The Valley so far.

Sessegnon, who won the England U17 World Cup as a youngster, missed games against Cambridge, Wycombe, Bolton, Forest Green and Fleetwood with a hamstring problem.

The Addicks have been unbeaten since the former Plymouth and Bristol City loanee came back into the starting line-up for the 1-1 draw against Oxford United.

“Really well. I think the key has just been keeping him fit,” Garner told the South London Press when asked how he believed the 22-year-old had developed since joining the club.

“Sess has come in and really brought into the football side, but also the sports science side.

“For example, his strength has really improved in terms of what he can do, and that will play a key part in keeping him fit and having him more robust and available for more games.

“I really like his character. 

“He’s an energiser, Sess – he’s always positive and he’s always around people in the group. 

“He’s a really talented player. I think there is a lot more to come from him with more games and more time on the pitch.”

The Addicks host bottom-of-the-table Milton Keynes on Tuesday evening.

“They are a really good team, with a good manager and were in the play-offs last season,” added Garner.

“They lost a couple of key players in the summer and they’ve had to rebuild – a lot of recruitment. They have a really talented squad – some hugely experienced players within their ranks and also some really exciting young players. 

“They have a clear identity and a clear ethos as a football club, by no means can we take Milton Keynes lightly.”
