Sessegnon can get better - O'Neill

Published Add your comment

Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill has challenged Stephane Sessegnon to get himself among the goals after handing him a contract extension.

The 28-year-old Benin international on Thursday signed a new three-year deal which will keep him at the Stadium of Light until the summer of 2015 after weeks of speculation over his future.

O'Neill was delighted to have retained Sessegnon's services just days after staging a transfer coup to land Adam Johnson and Steven Fletcher. "I think he himself for the talent he possesses might think his goal ratio is not up there, but he is a quality player and he is hard to mark," O'Neill said.
