Ryan Mason has claimed on Twitter that Tottenham had a “great season” despite their capitulation in the final month of the campaign.

The Spurs midfielder admitted there was “not the end we wanted” but the team will bounce back next season.

Tottenham took just two points from their final four matches of the campaign after being Leicester’s closest title challengers from February onwards.

But draws against West Brom and Chelsea ended the London club’s title bid with two matches remaining, and they then nosedived to defeats against Southampton and Newcastle.

With Mousa Dembele and Dele Alli both serving suspensions for violent conduct, Mason started the last two matches following a season spent mostly on the fringes.

But the England international was substituted in both games, including at half-time of the humiliating final-day defeat to Newcastle.

Mason took to Twitter on Friday afternoon to give his viewpoint for the first time in over a fortnight.

Mason’s comments come after he has been touted for a possible summer exit from White Hart Lane.

As revealed by Football Insider on Thursday, the 24-year-old academy graduate is one of three players who could be offered in part-exchange for £20million strike target Callum Wilson.

In other Tottenham news, the club are sizing up a summer move for a 27-year-old Italy international.
