Insider: Tottenham 'feel confident' in appointing Mason after source update
Tottenham would feel confident in appointing Ryan Mason as interim manager after sacking Nuno Espirito Santo.
That is according to Spurs insider John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.
Nuno, 47, was sacked by Tottenham on Monday morning after a brutal 3-0 loss to Man United.
Shortly after the announcement, this site revealed Spurs are in advanced talks with former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.
A club source has revealed Spurs are “very confident” of appointing the Italian.
Mason 30, spent seven games in caretaker charge at the end of last season after Jose Mourinho was sacked just before the Carabao Cup final in April.

If Spurs take their time in appointing Conte or any other manager, Wenham has no issue with Mason being called upon again.
“Tottenham would feel confident in appointing Mason on an interim basis,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.
“He knows Tottenham inside out. He works regularly with the academy and knows all the young players.
“Also, he’s played with a lot of the senior figures, he’s Harry Kane’s best mate and he’s very popular.
“He did very, very well last season winning four out of six Premier League games despite being perceived as inexperienced.
“One of those was an away win at a very good Leicester side and that secured us European football over Arsenal.
“I would have no issues with him coming in again if Tottenham want to take their time with a decision.”
Tottenham are eighth in the Premier League after their loss to Man United.
They are next in action against Vitesse in the Europa Conference League on Thursday.
