Tottenham have confirmed Ryan Mason will take charge as interim manager for the remainder of the season.

Spurs parted company with Jose Mourinho on Monday morning after 17 months in charge of the Premier League club.

Mason will be joined by Chris Powell and Nigel Gibbs as assistant coaches with Michel Vorm working as goalkeeping coach.

Ledley King will continue in his role as first-team assistant.

Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy said: "We have great belief in this squad of talented players. We have a cup final and six Premier League games ahead of us and we shall now focus all our energies on achieving a strong finish to the season."

Spurs are back in Premier League action on Wednesday night against Southampton and Mason is due to speak to the media on Tuesday afternoon.

The 29-year-old retired from playing in 2018 after suffering a fractured skull and since then has been working with the club's academy.

Mason is sure to be questioned about the European Super League with Spurs one of six Premier League clubs to announce they'd be joining the breakaway competition.

After the Southampton game, attention will then turn to Sunday's Carabao Cup final against Manchester City at Wembley.

Spurs will be aiming to lift a first trophy since 2008 when they beat Chelsea in the League Cup final.
