A source close to Tottenham Hotspur has revealed the REAL reason that academy product Ryan Mason left the club this summer.
Wishing to remain anonymous, the source claimed: “Truthfully, Pochettino was happy with the squad role that Ryan could offer the team – especially with the increased number of fixtures we have to play this term. However, their relationship took a sudden turn for the worse when Ryan left his socks in his Range Rover before training”, something the Argentine took immediate offence to.
“Obviously, with Townsend having once done a very similar thing in forgetting his shower gel, time was basically up for him. Mauricio felt that Mason was better off taking a period of exile up north, so he could really contemplate upon him behaviour.”
Mason has since featured eight times for Hull, having left the club. We think it was Hull he went to at any rate?
