LONDON: Tottenham have confirmed Ryan Mason will be in caretaker charge until the end of the season following the sacking of Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho was relieved of his duties on Monday following a disappointing run of form which has seen Spurs drop out of the race for the top four.

Mason, the 29-year-old former Spurs and Hull midfielder who was forced to retire from playing in 2018, steps up from his role as head of player development at the club.

Chris Powell and Nigel Gibbs will assist him, while Ledley King stays on as a first-team coach and former goalkeeper Michel Vorm returns to the club as a goalkeeping coach.

Mason is thrown in at the deep end as his first game in charge is a Premier League match with Southampton on Wednesday, while he will also lead his boyhood club out at Wembley on Sunday in the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.

Chairman Daniel Levy said on the club’s official website: “We have great belief in this squad of talented players.

“We have a cup final and six Premier League games ahead of us and we shall now focus all our energies on achieving a strong finish to the season.”
