According to the Evening Standard, Ryan Mason could be in charge of Tottenham’s Europa Conference League encounter against Vitesse Arnhem if the club is not able to make a managerial appointment in time. 

Tottenham are currently in need of a new face in the dugout after Nuno Espirito Santo was sacked on Monday morning, following Saturday’s 3-0 defeat to Manchester United. 

Spurs chiefs are now allegedly in talks with free agent Antonio Conte as the Portuguese coach’s replacement.

However, the Evening Standard claim that Spurs could hand former player and interim head coach Mason a short-term stint in charge if the club cannot bring in a replacement quickly. 

The report suggests the 30-year-old could be turned to briefly ahead of the club’s Europa Conference League game against Vitesse Arnhem on Thursday evening. 

Mason was appointed as Spurs’ caretaker manager in April last season after Jose Mourinho’s sacking, and led the club to four wins in seven games.

It seems to be a pretty quick turnaround given there is only a handful of days until the club’s next game. Mason could be a good option to take charge on Thursday, as it will give the club a bit of time to carefully consider their plans.
