O'Neill issues Sessegnon challenge
Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill has been riling Stephane Sessegnon up in training to get more out of him at match time.
The out of form Benin international has come through a disappointing pre-season which has carried on into the Premier League campaign, with the 28-year-old yet to hit the back of the net in the top flight this term. No goals in three games has prompted O'Neill to try and spark Sessegnon into life as Sunderland, who you can back using your free bet, hope to kick-start their campaign. The Black Cats boss told the Daily Express: "On Tuesday we did some training and I was refereeing the game. I really irritated him (Sessegnon) because I didn't give him one foul even though he was clearly fouled four times. I really got his temper up. "He hasn't had a great pre-season, with one or two issues, but over time he'll return to top form again. "He was frustrated with himself last weekend against Liverpool, but he'll be fine soon enough."
