Ryan Mason told his role at Tottenham Hotspur after Nuno Espirito Santo appointment made
The 29-year-old was appointed as interim manager for Spurs back in April. Daniel Levy sacked Jose Mourinho and Mason was handed the temporary managerial role.
It was always unlikely for the inexperienced Mason to step into the permanent role already. But fans wondered what would happen to him once the club appoints their new boss- which they have now in Nuno Espirito Santo, the former Wolves manager.
As it turns out, Mason will return to the Academy as Head of Player Development. The club statement listed out Mason’s ambit of operation, which would be with the development teams.
“As part of his overall remit in the Under-17 to Under-23 age category, he will have a significant involvement across our Under-18s coaching programme alongside our new Under-18s Coach, Stuart Lewis.”
Mason back to the Academy
Academy manager Dean Rastrick was pleased to have the former Hull City manager back in the Academy at Hotspur Way. He said:
“Ryan’s return to the Academy allows him to continue his outstanding work as a coach and player developer – something he is passionate about…”
In addition, the club also announced Dean Brill as the new Academy goalkeeping coach. He joins the club from Leyton Orient and his inclusion concludes a minor Academy shake-up before the start of the new season.

Mason’s development as a manager is something that the club should keep track of. While he is not ready to take charge of a club like Spurs at the moment, he can blossom into a good manager, whether at N17, or elsewhere.
