Report: Ryan Mason named as potential head coach option for London club

According to The Sunderland Echo, Ryan Mason is one of the contenders to replace Nigel Adkins as Charlton head coach.

Mason was handed the interim head coach job at Tottenham until the end of the season after Jose Mourinho was sacked in April, with the 30-year-old becoming the youngest ever manager to take charge of a Premier League game.

The former Spurs midfielder adopted an attacking brand of football during his short stint in charge of the Tottenham first-team.

Even though a couple of the Lilywhites’ performances left a lot to be desired under the Mason, results on the whole were decent, with the club winning four of the six Premier League games he took charge of at the end of the season.

After the appointment of Nuno Espirito Santo over the summer, Mason resumed his role as the Tottenham academy’s head of player development. 

The Sunderland Echo have now claimed that Charlton could make a move for the 30-year-old as they seek to replace Adkins.

Former Addicks midfielder John Jackson and former Newport County boss Michael Flynn are named as the two other contenders to take over at the League One club.

Spurs Web Opinion

With Charlton now languishing in the relegation zone, I am not sure if the opportunity will prove too enticing for Mason. He might want to wait for a better project, potentially at a lower-end Championship club or a top-half League One club.
