Tottenham caretaker boss Mason: Still great potential here

Tottenham caretaker boss Ryan Mason has defended the club after a poor defeat at Leeds United.

Mason refuses to be pessimistic about the club's future and insists Jose Mourinho's permanent successor will inherit a squad full of quality.

The caretaker Spurs boss is adamant the next manager has the players to be successful.

“Absolutely," he said. “There are some great characters. It's a big squad, it's a very good squad as well. There are definite tools to work with for next season.

“I'm sure, the chairman, the board and the football club will have a long, hard think about the direction the club want to go.

“I think looking at the bigger picture and discussions like that need to happen over the summer. My focus has to be on the next game and the training week to prepare us.

“Our focus has to be on the next week, the next game, and then I'm sure those conversations will happen in the summer."
