Tottenham Hotspur interim manager, Ryan Mason, has said the team’s 1-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday, shows a blueprint for his tactical plans while in charge.
Mason took over after Jose Mourinho was sacked last Monday, with few days to the game at Wembley..
Aymeric Laporte’s late header saw City win the trophy for the fourth consecutive season.
“It was a difficult match. I thought in the first half we rode our luck on a couple of occasions. There were times where it was controlled.
“In the second half we had a good moment and some set plays. I felt while we did not create much in the second half, neither did they. It is difficult to concede from a set piece though.
“We didn’t have long to work on it, but that’s the way I want to go forward during my time here. City have had 5 or 6 years with the same coach, so they’ve much more time to get so comfortable with the way they play,” Mason said after the game.
