Ryan Mason met with the media this morning in an unusually early press conference ahead of tomorrow’s Premier League match against Leeds United.
The 29-year-old was asked about the prospects of being named as head coach on a long-term basis but decided to remain tight-lipped on the prospect of leading the team out next season.
Mason was handed the opportunity to take over first-team affairs last month after Daniel Levy decided to sack Jose Mourinho and his backroom staff after the club found themselves in seventh place in the Premier League table and having suffered a humiliating exit in the Europa League at the hands of Dinamo Zagreb.
A number of names have been linked with the North London hot seat including Brendan Rodgers, Graham Potter and Antonio Conte (Football.London).
Mason heads into the match at Elland Road tomorrow having won both of his opening two Premier League fixtures against Southampton and Sheffield United, with his only defeat coming in the Carabao Cup final.
He told Football.London: “That’s all hypothetical and if we win or don’t. I’m just thinking about the next game. I’m not silly enough to start thinking ahead to certain situations and that’s all I have to say on the matter.”
