Tottenham caretaker boss Mason: Fans protesting? I can't have opinion on that...

Tottenham caretaker boss Ryan Mason hopes to ease tension between fans and the board after victory over Southampton.

Mason hopes Tottenham's performances on the pitch can help unite the club after fans protested against chairman Daniel Levy and the club's owners ahead of the 2-1 Premier League win over Southampton.

Around 100 supporters gathered at the stadium to voice their displeasure at Spurs' involvement in the failed European Super League breakaway plan and it added to a tumultuous 72 hours at the club.

Asked what he thought of the fans' protests, Mason, who is a boyhood Spurs supporter, said: “First of all I can't have an opinion because I wasn't aware of that, we didn't see it from the coach so I can't comment on that.

“But the most important thing is to create a good energy around the place. Obviously when you are winning matches that does help, but more importantly the performance in the second half is where we want it to be.

“Thankfully we have got the win and we can look forward to tomorrow now."
