Ryan Mason reacts to Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City being postponed

Earlier today, the Premier League announced the decision to postpone all of this weekend’s matches in the wake of Her Majesty The Queen’s death on Thursday, September 8.

An excerpt from the official statement from the league’s CEO Richard Masters on the PL website reads:

“We and our clubs would like to pay tribute to Her Majesty’s long and unwavering service to our country.  As our longest-serving monarch, she has been an inspiration and leaves behind an incredible legacy following a life of dedication.”

“This is a tremendously sad time for not just the nation, but also for the millions of people around the world who admired her, and we join together with all those in mourning her passing.”

This means Tottenham Hotspur’s clash against Manchester City scheduled to take place on Saturday at the Etihad has been postponed as a result. Ryan Mason, Tottenham’s first-team coach, has now reacted to the news.

The former Hull City midfielder took to Twitter and posted:

“Absolutely the right decision, respect.”

Mason was notably our interim manager between the time we fired Jose Mourinho and hired Nuno Espirito Santo last year. At 29, he became the youngest individual to take charge of a Premier League and under Antonio Conte, works as a first-team coach at Hotspur Way.

While the majority understand the reasoning behind the postponement, some would have questioned the decision to call off the fixtures on such short notice.

Mason’s viewpoint, however, is one of maturity and poise. The day of the Queen’s death is a moment in history that will forever be etched into Great Britain’s history.

The reactions of those that reside in the United Kingdom reflect the respect they hold in their hearts for the Royal Family. Everyone needs to come together and stand in solidarity rather than let football take up a big chunk of discussions.

This weekend’s games will be postponed but the dates are yet to be released. Spurs are expected to be back in action when they take on Sporting CP in Lisbon on September 13, although it remains to be seen if that fixture will go ahead as planned on the stipulated date.
