After Bayern Munich fired him in March, many people have widely regarded Nagelsmann as the front-runner for the position at Tottenham.
Nagelsmann’s shocking departure from the Bundesliga winners led to a mutual agreement between Tottenham and Antonio Conte to part ways. Many assumed that Tottenham would consider the German for the position in north London.
Sources reported on Friday that the club does not have the 35-year-old on their list of contenders and will not interview him for the Tottenham position.
Interim manager Mason is the last remaining contender, and in remarks made before the Nagelsmann news broke, he cited Newcastle manager Eddie Howe as an example because he accepted the position at Bournemouth at the same age of 31.
Mason declared, “I’ve always said I’m ready,” prior to Saturday’s match between Tottenham and Aston Villa.
“I’m prepared for this situation.I believe I can benefit the club. That’s how I generally feel, and I’ll stick with it. That is how I have been feeling ever since the club gave me this task.
Naturally, you brought up Eddie Howe, who is a fantastic manager. He serves as an example.
“Gary O’Neil is one who is probably not mentioned very often, in my opinion. His work at Bournemouth has mostly gone unnoticed, but he is a young English manager in his first position.
Rumors suggest that Tottenham is considering Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi, former Spain coach Luis Enrique, and Feyenoord manager Arne Slot.
Mason’s first victory as interim manager of Tottenham came last weekend, a 1-0 triumph over Crystal Palace.
Four of his six Premier League games during his initial stint in 2021 were victories.
With my coaching staff, I need to perform my duties as effectively as possible, Mason stated.
We make decisions in the best interests of the team and the football club because we are professionals.
