Ryan Mason has suggested Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy will have a “long hard think” about the club’s future in the coming weeks as the search for a new manager ramps up.
Spurs’ slim Champions League chances were all but ended by Leeds United on Sunday, though there are still faint hopes of a top four finish going into the final three Premier League games of the season.
In any case, Tottenham need a new manager to lead the team next term after a disastrous campaign mostly overseen by Jose Mourinho.
Mason believes whoever comes in next season will have a good group of players to work with, but he has also suggested Levy has a lot of thinking to do over the summer.
“It’s a big squad. It’s a very good squad as well,” Mason said (via the London Evening Standard).
“There’s definitely tools to work with for next season and I’m sure the chairman and the football club will have a long hard think about the direction the football club wants to go.”
On Monday we relayed a Standard story that claimed Gareth Southgate may be interested in taking the Spurs job, while Brendan Rodgers, Graham Potter and Ralph Rangnick are still chief among the candidates.
It will be an interesting summer, that’s for sure.
