Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Michel Vorm will be a part of Ryan Mason’s interim coaching team who will take over until the end of the season.
The timing of Jose Mourinho’s sacking has left many puzzled, with the club having a Carabao Cup Final to play at the end of the week.
Reports have indicated that Daniel Levy is hopeful Mourinho’s sacking could hand the squad a morale boost and an additional incentive for the cup final and rest of the season.
It has also been suggested in the press that Julian Nagelsmann is Tottenham’s number one target and that the Spurs chairman wanted to move quickly to steal a march on Bayern Munich in the pursuit of the German.
The Tottenham hierarchy have now decided that Mason, who was the head of player development (Under-17 to Under-23), would take over as interim head coach until the end of the season.
Mason will be supported by Chris Powell, who was previously the head of coaching for the academy and Nigel Gibbs, who was an Under-19s coach at the club back in 2016.
Spurs have also confirmed that Vorm, who retired from professional football last summer after completing six years at the club, will join as the goalkeeping coach. Ledley King will also stay on in the position he filled under Jose Mourinho.

This is certainly a special moment for Ryan Mason, who is Tottenham through and through. While his lack of experience could be a factor in holding the respect of the players, he does know the likes of Kane and Lloris very well and can lean on them to help marshal the troops. We are hopefully going to see if for the leash being taken off so that our attacking players can express themselves.
