Tottenham Hotspur youngster TJ Eyoma shares how training sessions under Ryan Mason differ from others

Talking in an exclusive interview with football.london, Tottenham Hotspur loanee TJ Eyoma heaped praise on Ryan Mason and shared that his training sessions are mentally and physically intense for the players.

Jose Mourinho was sacked by Daniel Levy just 6 days before the Carabao Cup final last month. And instead of making a hurried decision, Levy opted to go with Academy coach Ryan Mason as the interim manager until the summer.

The 29-year-old became the youngest manager ever to manage a Premier League club when he led his team out against Southampton in an impressive 2-1 comeback win for the Lilywhites.

Ryan Mason played for Tottenham Hotspur and is now their interim manager.

And Eyoma, who spent time training under Mason at Spurs’ academy before his loan move to Lincoln City this year, gave an insight into how the training sessions are like under the former Hull City midfielder and why players seem to like it.

“”They [training sessions] do differ. The training sessions you have to really concentrate as it’s tough on the mind and also physically. I can see why the players do enjoy training,”

Who next?

Getting along with players and earning their respect is the foundation of being a good manager. And according to Eyoma, that is a problem Mason does not need to worry about.

“He’s a good coach. I feel like all the young boys get on really well with him and he just tries to help us every single day. I’m really happy for him that he’s got the managerial role at the club until the end of the season.”

The journey with Mason will last until the summer. Spurs are primed to appoint a new head coach to replace Jose Mourinho and have been linked with several top names such as Julian Nagelsmann, Brendan Rodgers and Erik ten Hag.

But there is still no clue as to who Levy chooses to appoint as Spurs aim to recover from this torrid season and make a run for silverware again next campaign.
