Football London’s Alasdair Gold has reported that, as the publication understands, no one from Tottenham has asked Ryan Mason to work with the first-team next season.

This comes after the former academy graduate took charge of Tottenham Hotspur on an interim basis at the end of last season when Jose Mourinho was sacked in late April.

It was an up and down period for Spurs under Mason, with four out of six Premier League wins but a disappointing defeat in the Carabao Cup Final to Man City.

Tottenham have now gone over 70 days without a permanent manager in place and some reports have claimed that Mason has been put on standby to lead the team through pre-season.

However, Gold has reported that Mason, for now, is expected to return to his old role which will involve working with the academy age groups at Hotspur Way for pre-season.

The journalist does add that Mason could be asked to help out if Spurs eventually turn their attentions to a manager currently in work at an international tournament.

Spurs Web Opinion:

I fully expect Ryan Mason to be taking the first pre-season session. I don’t see Tottenham signing a new boss before then. Unfortunately, I don’t think there will be much of a pre-season at all under the new head coach.
