Ryan Mason Becomes Youngest Manager In Premier League History
Ryan Mason made history on Wednesday, becoming the youngest manager in Premier League history while winning his debut in charge of Tottenham.
Mason, taking over Spurs on a caretaker basis after Jose Mourinho’s sacking earlier this week, saw his side come back to defeat Southampton 2-1 on Wednesday.
At 29 years, 312 days old, Mason broke the previous record by nearly three years.
“I thought it was fantastic, so proud of the boys,” Mason told Sky Sports after the game. “So much energy, so much bravery, especially after the first 20-30 minutes as well.
“I thought [Southampton] came out the blocks, they were very good in the first half, we found it difficult at times.
“But the guys showed belief, they stuck to the plan and full credit to the guys because the energy, the commitment, bravery and I’ll be honest: I thought there was only one team that was going to win it.”
