Ryan Mason has thanked the Tottenham fans having finished his role as interim head coach at Leicester on Sunday.
The 29-year-old was thrown in at the deep end following the departure of Jose Mourinho last month, but ensure the club qualified for Europe for a 12th consecutive campaign.
The victory at the King Power Stadium last weekend secured Spurs’ place in the inaugural UEFA Conference League after a decent run of form under Mason’s guidance.
He started with a comeback victory over Southampton, but was unable to end the club’s 13-year wait for a trophy when they were narrowly beaten in the Carabao Cup final, less than seven days into the job.
Defeats to both Leeds and Aston Villa ended Tottenham’s faint Champions League and even Europa League hopes, but beating Leicester confirmed a fifth consecutive season above Arsenal and a seventh-place finish.
Following the conclusion of his role as interim head coach, Mason sent a message on Twitter.
He said: “Enjoyed leading the team the last few weeks I couldn’t have asked for more from the group of players and we always felt the fans behind us. Thankyou for your support.”
