Tottenham Hotspur interim coach Ryan Mason said on Friday that he expects the first league club to be here next season and has not ruled out his return to the coaching staff if a new boss is appointed.
Ryan Mason was removed from the post of first team coach in the club’s youth development department and was appointed interim coach following Jose Mourinho’s dismissal last month. Jose Mourinho joined Roma after he was sacked by the club.
Mason won Tottenham in the first two league games but lost to Manchester City 1–0 in the League Cup final last month. A 3–1 defeat at Leeds United on Saturday left them in seventh place in the standings with 56 points from 35 matches.
Asked about his future before Sunday’s home match, Wolverhampton Wanderers, the 29-year-old former Spurs midfielder said: “At the beginning of our conversation” Can you help by the end of the season? “After that, the role is to get back to what I was doing.

“So from what I understand at the moment, there are three more games and I am incredibly proud to help this club in this situation. And after that, my hope is to be here. I love this club, I want to help this club.”
“It was an earlier conversation, we haven’t had a conversation since, because the priority and purpose were Premier League games and obviously, we also had the League Cup final and tried to take the game in hand.”
Mason said defensively Ben Davis, who has not played since March due to a foot injury, would probably lose the rest of the campaign, while Tottenham are trying to gain a European spot.
