Report: Ryan Mason could leave Spurs as he eyes route back into management

Ryan Mason could leave Spurs this summer if the right manager job comes up to tempt him away, according to a report from the Daily Mail.

The 29-year-old stepped up to the plate when Jose Mourinho was sacked with just a few months of the season to play. During his time in charge of Spurs, Mason helped the club to 12 from a possible 18 points.

Mason is apparently popular with the Spurs squad. The Mail claims his training sessions proved a hit, while he’s also respected in the dressing room despite his tender years.

However, Mason is said to have got the taste for management. And with that, he could well take up the right offer, should it come along.

A number of Championship clubs are looking for new managers, including the likes of West Brom. Below that, Sunderland boss Lee Johnson is under pressure, so there could be plenty of options for Mason.

Of course, it would take a club to approach him. But Mason is believed to be open to the idea of leaving North London, if the job is right.

Ryan Mason showed enough as Spurs manager to warrant a shot

There will be clubs out there looking at Mason, 100%. He did a sterling job really, in tough circumstances and following one of the biggest names in the game.

Mason handled himself with class. This, despite a few bad results and the constant speculation around Harry Kane.

Naturally, it would need a club willing to take a bit of a gamble and also a club prepared to give Mason time. There’s no point appointing a 29-year-old and not giving him time to make his mark.

On the flip side, it’s also a risk for Mason himself. He is well set at Spurs and could have a job for life really. Any move into management would see him let go what he’s built at Spurs. That, then, is something only he can assess.
