Mason still focused on Tottenham’s targets

Tottenham Hotspur v Wolverhampton Wanderers – Premier League – Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – Sunday 2:05pm – Preview

A 4-0 victory over Sheffield United swiftly followed by a 3-1 defeat at Leeds – Inconsistency which has highlighted Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League campaign, and indeed, beyond.

But interim boss, Ryan Mason wasn’t about to get bogged down in the Lilywhites ever-frustrating histrionics. There are still three matches to play – potentially, nine points in the offering, starting with Wolverhampton Wanderers visit to N17 on Sunday.

The target – and I might sound like a broken record – is to get as many points as possible and see where we finish,” Mason explained.

“We can’t look ahead. It’s very difficult in the Premier League to win three, four, five games in a row. We know that. We respect the opposition.
“Every game we play we respect them and our mind and our attention has to be on Wolves at the weekend and it will be.

“Hopefully, by doing that we can get a positive result and at the end of next week hopefully we’ll see where we are, but of course we want to be in European competitions.

“Of course, this football club that’s what we strive for. That’s what we want and what we expect, to be in the Champions League and going forward of course.”

Having taken the reins following Jose Mourinho’s departure, Mason touched on his own future, adding: “At the start of our conversations it was can you help the football club until the end of the season? And then after that, the role is there, to return to what I was doing. So as far as I understand at the moment, there’s three more games, and I’m incredibly proud to be in this position, helping this football club. And then after that, my hope is to remain here of course.

“I love this club, I want to help this football club. That was the conversations before, we’ve had no conversations since because the priority and the aim has been on the games in the Premier League, and obviously, we had a League Cup final as well, and to try and win the games in hand.”
