Tottenham interim manager Ryan Mason has been speaking to the press ahead of their trip to Villa Park this weekend.

Tottenham’s interim manager Ryan Mason says he’s delighted Harry Kane has questioned the standards at the club and wants to get everyone giving off their best in what is left of the campaign.

In a genuinely challenging campaign, Tottenham have gone from being in the top four to challenging for a top-six finish with Brighton and Aston Villa.

They sacked Antonio Conte and initially replaced him with Cristian Stellini before going against that decision to install Mason as the interim boss till the end of the season.

The long-term future of Harry Kane who is the club’s record scorer continues to be up in the air but his comments demanding that the club go back to its roots and hold on to its standards is something Mason is delighted to hear.

He told reporters ahead of the visit to Villa this weekend: “We’re talking about a massive football club here. I agree with him. I’m happy he said it. He’s one of the people I want to drive it because of his stature at this football club.”

Kane has been in brilliant form for the Lilywhites despite all the chaos that has been happening at the club and his 26 league goals this season would have bagged him the Golden Boot award but for a certain Erling Haaland at Manchester City.

Manchester United are reportedly keeping an eye on the Harry Kane situation even though it is still unclear if he’ll push to leave Spurs this summer, extend his current deal or wait to leave for free next summer.

However, a strong finish to the league season will go a long way in changing the mood around the club and possibly keeping Kane.
