Ivan Perisic made his first appearance in Tottenham’s starting lineup against Wolves. The impressions he left on the pitch were nothing but positive. The Croatian showed why he was acquired and how important he will be for the team in the future.
After the match, Antonio Conte gave his opinion on the 33-year-old midfielder’s performance.
“I have seen the Ivan Perisic I know from when we were together at Inter. For us he is very important because we are talking about a player with a great experience. A player that won a lot in his past, has played in an important team.”
The 33-year-old’s quality play in the second half had a significant impact on the outcome of the match, and the Tottenham head coach noticed it. The Italian specialist stressed that the presence of Perisic in the team gives a positive result for Ryan Sessegnon as well.
“I was really pleased with the impact of Ryan Sessegnon. For Sess, who is playing well this season it is very, very important to have a player in front of you like Ivan. In front of him Sess has a great career.”
