This is the second time Mason has taken on interim manager duties, having previously coached the club since José Mourinho in April 2021.
Mason was an assistant coach on the coaching staff of Italian coach Antonio Conte, who was sacked from his position at the end of March last year before becoming Stellini’s assistant.
Ryan Mason has a short career as a coach on the football fields, having retired from the game 5 years ago when he was only 26 years old.
Mason was born in England on 13 June 1991 and is only 31 years old. He started his career from a young age at Tottenham when he joined the club’s academy at the age of eight.
Mason signed his first contract with Tottenham Hotspur in August 2008, when he was only 17 years old, and played his first match with the team in November of that year.
Although he remained a player at Tottenham for about 8 years, he hardly played in the first team as he spent most of that period on loan at several clubs before moving to Hull City in 2016.
A few months after moving to Hull City, Ryan Mason was involved in an unfortunate accident during a match against Chelsea on 22 January 2017, when he fell to the ground after a violent head-on collision with Chelsea defender Gary Cahill and left the field. before it was confirmed that he had a skull fracture.
Mason underwent successful head surgery and rehab until the end of 2017 to return to acting.
And it seemed very difficult after installing 14 metal plates in his skull with 28 screws holding them in place, in addition to 45 pins and a 6-inch scar on his head.
After several attempts, on February 13, 2018, Ryan Mason announced his final retirement from football at the age of 26 due to the risks involved in his return to the game again.
Ryan Mason, two months after the end of his career, joined the coaching staff of the Tottenham club academy, where he began to finish it.
A golden opportunity presented itself in 2021 when Portuguese coach José Mourinho was sacked at the end of the 2020-2021 season after taking temporary charge of the first team.
During this period, Mason became the youngest manager in English Premier League history at the age of 29 before he left after the end of the season.
In November of the same year, Mason was transferred to the coaching staff of the new Italian coach Antonio Conte.
Following Conte’s departure last March, Mason worked as an assistant coach to interim coach Christian Stellini before he temporarily rose to the coaching position following his departure.
Thus, Ryan Mason became the youngest coach in the current season of the English Premier League at the age of 31, with a difference of about 8 years with Spaniard Robin Celis, Southampton coach.
The following is a list of the youngest managers in the English Premier League:
Englishman Ryan Mason (Tottenham Hotspur) – 31 years old
Spaniard Robin Celis (Southampton) – 39 years old
Englishman Gary O’Neill (Bournemouth) – 39 years old
Spaniard Mikel Arteta (Arsenal) – 41 years old
Welshman Steve Cooper (Nottingham Forest) – 43 years old
