Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic has suggested that Ryan Sessegnon could become more of a player in the mould of Marcelo rather than Gareth Bale.

Speaking to Cadena Ser, Jokanovic admitted that Sessegnon can feature anywhere on the left side of the pitch but he sees him progressing into more of attacking full-back like Marcelo, he said: “He can play in two positions, as left-back or at left wing, and that is why he is being compared to Bale. Bale also started in that position before he made the switch to become a more attacking player.
