Alasdair Gold has said that Harry Kane and several senior Tottenham players would support the idea of Ryan Mason being appointed as the club’s permanent head coach.
Although results have not been as encouraging for Ryan Mason in his second stint as interim coach, the 31-year-old did take over at an extremely tumultuous time and has arguably delivered on his promise of a more attacking approach.
Understandably, the former Tottenham midfielder does not seem to be in contention for the full-time role, with reports over recent days indicating that Ange Postecoglou, Ruben Amorim and Luis Enrique are the top candidates to replace Antonio Conte at the helm (Football Insider).
Some sources have suggested that Postecoglou could be the club’s top target, with The Evening Standard revealing on Wednesday that Spurs are expected to make a move for the Australian after Celtic’s Scottish Cup final on Saturday.
Gold has now said that Mason has made a good impression on the Tottenham players in his short time at the helm and that many would be happy to play for him next season.
The journalist said on his YouTube channel: “I have been told that there are a lot of players that would play for Ryan Mason. They would be very happy if he was manager. I am sure Harry Kane is one of them as well.
“I do think people really underestimate how he is going to become a young top coach.
“I think he is going to go away and be very successful elsewhere, then we will say ‘surely it’s a matter of time before he comes back to be Tottenham’s coach’. I hope that’s true.”

It would be unfair to judge Mason based on the handful of matches he has not had much time to work with the squad on the training ground and get his ideas across.
He also took over at a time when the morale was really low and with the team not playing for any major prizes.
So, the 31-year-old could indeed be a really talented coach but unfortunately, Tottenham are at a crossroads at the moment and cannot afford to gamble on him.
