Tottenham have confirmed that Ryan Mason will take charge of the first-team as Interim Head Coach for the remainder of the campaign.
Following the departure of Jose Mourinho on Monday morning, the former Spurs midfielder was set to take training and appeared likely to take charge of tomorrow’s Premier League meeting with Southampton and Sunday’s Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.
And less than 24 hours, Daniel Levy has made the decision to keep Mason for the last seven games.

Mason will be joined by Chris Powell and Nigel Gibbs as Interim Assistant Head Coaches and Michel Vorm as Interim Goalkeeping Coach, whilst Ledley King, who was the only survivor from Mourinho’s coaching, continues as First Team Assistant.
It’s quite some story for the 29-year-old, who was forced to retire following a horrible head injury back in 2017, and will now lead his beloved Tottenham out in their first domestic final since 2015 when he started against Chelsea at Wembley.
