Tottenham Hotspur officially announced this morning that Ryan Mason would be taking over as interim head coach until the end of the season.
The news came after Jose Mourinho was sacked from his role after 17 months in North London, with Spurs struggling for form of late across all competitions.
The Lilywhites are still five points behind in the race for top four and were knocked out of the Europa League by Dinamo Zagreb, although they do have a cup final this weekend.
Spurs play Man City in the Carabao Cup Final on Sunday at Wembley as they look to end their 13-year wait for a trophy that dates back to the 2008 Carling Cup.
Ryan Mason will first have the chance to test out his new-look Tottenham team on Wednesday with a game against Southampton in the Premier League.
Inevitably, the interim head coach was asked whether he wanted the Tottenham job permanently beyond the end of the current season.
He replied (Football London): “Look it’s a bit of cliche but I only knew I was taking training yesterday. All of my focus is on the game tomorrow and then the weekend.”
