Tottenham interim boss Ryan Mason says he has not discussed his long-term future with chairman Daniel Levy.

Tottenham interim boss Ryan Mason has said the latest on his future as Spurs boss.

Mason is in charge until the end of the season after replacing Jose Mourinho and has led Spurs to two victories from two Premier League games so far.

The 29-year-old says he has a good relationship with the chairman, but nothing has been discussed beyond the next game at Leeds.

“I’ve always had a very good relationship with the chairman” Mason said as quoted by Sky Sports.

“As a player, I returned as a coach, he’s also given me the responsibility to lead this club. We speak. He’s a good man, he cares immensely about the football club. He wants what’s best and we have a good relationship.

“All we’ve spoke about is the next game. It really has been the next game. It has to be. There can’t be any thought of the summer or next season.

“If you take your eye off the moment… the next game is important for the club, the players, the fans, the chairman, everyone.’

Mason is concentrating on winning the last four games of the season, which could possibly see Spurs gatecrash the top four and secure Champions League qualification for next season.

If he could manage that, there could be a compelling argument for him becoming Mourinho’s permanent successor, but Mason is not prepared to discuss that yet.

“That’s all hypothetical – “if we win, if we do this”. I’ve said all along my only focus is on the next game, I’m really not silly enough to starting thinking ahead of certain situations” he added.

“My mind has to be on this game tomorrow and then once that game’s out of the way my mind will be fully focused on the next one. That’s all I have to say on that matter.”
