According to Charlie Eccleshare, a journalist speaking on The View From The Lane Podcast, Tottenham’s players are big fans of their interim manager, Ryan Mason. Eccleshare claimed that Mason has impressed the squad not only as a person but also with his management style since taking over from Jose Mourinho.
Mason, who is only 31 years old, has half a decade of coaching experience behind him. Eccleshare praised Mason’s energy and enthusiasm for the job, adding that he is excited about putting his ideas across to the players.
The journalist believes that the squad has responded well to Mason, but ultimately he needs to get results to secure the job. Eccleshare argued that if a ‘brilliant’ manager already has a good relationship with the players, then it is worth considering hiring them on a permanent basis.
While the likes of Julian Nagelsmann and Luis Enrique are both excellent coaches, Eccleshare emphasized that there is no guarantee that they will connect with the Tottenham squad in the same way that Mason has. As recent history has shown, even the best managers can struggle to get to grips with this particular group of players.
With Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho both failing to get the best out of the Tottenham squad in recent years, perhaps going in a different direction and giving Mason the job would be the best course of action. Mason himself is reportedly keen to take the role.
In conclusion, Tottenham’s players have reportedly responded positively to Ryan Mason’s management style, and Charlie Eccleshare believes that he would be a good choice for the permanent role if he can deliver results.
