Alasdair Gold hints at Spurs plan for Ryan Mason after manager stint
Football London correspondent Alasdair Gold has shared on his YouTube channel that he understands that Ryan Mason will return to his previous role as things stand, following his stint as Spurs’ interim manager.
Mason oversaw the final seven games of the season following Jose Mourinho’s departure.
There were some bright moments. Tottenham won four of their final six Premier League games. And he deserves credit for only narrowly losing the Carabao Cup final days after taking on the role.
There were early suggestions that he may be considered for the permanent position. However, it has seemed quite clear for some time now that Spurs are looking in a different direction.
Paulo Fonseca is looking set to come in. And Gold has suggested that that is likely to lead to Mason returning to his previous position.
“Ryan Mason, I’m not entirely sure,” he told his YouTube channel. “From everything I’m hearing at the moment, it sounds like he’s going to go back to his Head of Youth Development role.
“Fonseca may well come in and wow him and charm him and say ‘I’d like you to be part of my backroom staff’. As it stands right now, I understand he’s going back to his Head of Youth Development role.”
Potential Spurs relief amid recent reports Mason could consider manager role elsewhere
It will please many Spurs fans that Mason looks set to stay involved with the club.
While his stint as Tottenham manager did not go ideally, he did receive a lot of praise for some of the encouraging signs.
There was also speculation that he could leave the club altogether. It was suggested that he is open to offers from other clubs after getting a taste of management.
But it would appear that he is going to stay with the club.
