Ryan Mason sets his sights on the first full-time managerial role and is ready to listen to offers after impressing as Tottenham’s boss.
- Ryan Mason is considered one of the most promising young managers in England
- He sent Tottenham to 12 points in their last six games of the season
- Mason listened to offers from clubs for a role as head coach or manager
- Players are impressed with the sessions and the ability to solve problems off the field
Ryan Mason is poised to become a full-time manager following his promising stint as a Tottenham janitor.
The former Spurs midfielder cemented his reputation as one of the country’s brightest young coaches during his short stint following Jose Mourinho’s resignation – winning four of his six Premier League games.
Mason led Spurs to 12 points from their last six games, compared to Mourinho’s eight from his last half dozen games.

And Sportsmail understands that the 29-year-old is aiming for a No. 1 job as he wants to take his first steps in senior management.
Tottenham players have reportedly been impressed with Mason’s coaching sessions during his time in charge and helped boost a side that lacked confidence.
Spurs’ last-day win over Leicester and Brendan Rodgers – who was one of Tottenham’s favorite options to replace Mourinho – was particularly impressive.
That he played for England and only played in 2018 is also understood as a resonance for the players. Spurs will likely try to keep Mason, who came through the ranks at the club as a player, within their coaching line-up.

But it’s clear that Mason would listen to offers for a job as a manager or head coach for next season.
His ability to deal with problems off the field is also known to have impressed many at Spurs.
Mason was forced to answer tough questions about Spurs’s attempts to join a European Super League and Harry Kane’s attempts to leave the club during his time in charge.
Mason already has extensive experience in academy coaching within Tottenham’s set-up and has obtained the necessary coaching badges.
