Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has been speaking about Ryan Mason’s role at Tottenham Hotspur, and praised the young manager for how he has taken on the position of Acting Head Coach recently.

The merry-go-round of managers at Tottenham this season appears to have ended for now, with Mason stepping up from his role as coach to lead the first team until the end of the campaign.

A tumultuous campaign for Spurs has already seen Antonio Conte leave the club after 16 months in charge, and his former assistant Cristian Stellini lose his job after a disastrous defeat to Newcastle United.

Mason has seemingly improved the situation since taking over, with a hard-fought draw against Manchester United last week, and a battling display against Liverpool in a 4-3 defeat.

The situation at the club has already been described as creating an ‘instability’ by Hojbjerg (Football Daily). Thankfully, things appear to have settled a little now.

Mason may be young, but he is good enough to handle the top job according to the Danish midfielder in his latest chat with Sky Sports’ Football Daily.

On the topic of Mason’s age, Hojbjerg said: “I think quality doesn’t have an age. I think if you are good enough, you are ready enough. And I think this is the case for Ryan [Mason].”

Mason has become a shock contender to land the Spurs job on a permanent basis recently (Football Insider). He has even told the Daily Mail that he feels ready to take a full-time managerial role, be it at Spurs or otherwise.

I think across his two spells as caretaker manager, Ryan Mason has proven he is a very capable manager and he clearly has a good dynamic with the players too.

I would be very keen to see him get a permanent managerial role elsewhere and really show what he can do.
