O´Neill thrilled with improved Sessegnon

4 March 2013 14:18

Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill has praised Stephane Sessegnon's improved form after he netted the equalizer in a 2-2 draw with Fulham.

Sessegnon has struggled to repeat his impressive returns of last season, when he netted seven goals and provided 12 assists.

But Benin international midfielder has now scored in each of his last two matches.

"Stephane is right back to his best," O'Neill told reporters.

"I said a few weeks ago if he could add some goals to his game he would be priceless and he's doing precisely that. He is playing brilliantly at this minute and was very dangerous throughout the game.

"He is going past players and has regained his confidence, which is a big thing for him. I think the couple of goals he's scored have been a big help in that. Although, in fairness, he was flying last week before he actually got his goal.

"He's great for us because he can play anywhere in midfield or down either side. At the minute, with Danny (Graham) coming into the side, he's happy enough to go into a wide role."
