Should Ryan Mason get the job long term?
However, there has been some speculation surrounding the potential of Mason becoming the permanent manager according to the print edition of The Sunday People (page 60) as relayed by GiveMeSport.
Amid the speculation, Gold addressed the possibility of Mason staying on at Spurs and becoming their next permanent boss.
He said: “From everything I’m hearing there’s a feeling it’s a bit premature, you know, it’s early days, and obviously, he’s done very, very well so far particularly in training. (19:46)
“But obviously, the teams they’ve beaten have been teams that you’d expect them to have beaten any way really, probably two of the most out of form teams in the league.”
“If he were to win all six Premier League games, and miracles occurred around them and they got in the Champions League, it would be very difficult to say, you don’t deserve to even at least be in consideration for it.”
TIF Thoughts on Gold’s comments…
There is a lot of speculation surrounding the vacant Spurs managerial role with a host of names being linked to the job.
However, this is Mason’s first job as manager of a senior side and in the game against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final the Lilywhites were massively off the pace despite only losing to an 82nd-minute goal.
Hiring a manager with so little experience to his name would be a huge risk for Levy and considering the failure his Mourinho appointment turned out to be, it would certainly make for a questionable decision if Levy hired Mason permanently.
