Tottenham interim boss Ryan Mason has taken aim at chairman Daniel Levy over the club’s inconsistent hiring practices by suggesting the players have been impacted by their constant change in management styles. Mason could be in charge for the final time on Sunday against leeds and the blunt nature of his comments may suggest that he believes Levy is to blame for the club’s struggles on the pitch this season.
Spurs are facing a battle just to qualify for European competition next season after sliding all the way from a place in the top four to eighth in the Premier League following the departure of Antonio Conte.
Mason’s side have lost five of their last seven games in the Premier League, including a 6-1 demolition at the hands of Newcastle earlier this month, although his predecessor Cristian Stellini was in charge for that particular match.
And the 31-year-old has alleviated some of the blame from the players, suggesting the Levy and the club’s inconsistent approach to hiring managers with different tactical styles has been far from ideal.
