Ryan Mason (29y 312d) became the youngest manager in the English Premier League history.
He is only the second person since the Football League resumed in 1946-47 to manage a top-flight game whilst in their 20s after Frank Sibley, whose first game was in August 1977 against Aston Villa, also at the age of 29, as QPR boss. Mason named four players in his starting XI who he played alongside during his own Premier League career. Here’s who they are with how many league appearances they made with their new interim head coach: Hugo Lloris (49), Eric Dier (44), Toby Alderweireld (22), Son Heung-Min (14). Mason said he feels “very proud” of his side after their “outstanding” 2-1 victory over Southampton in his first game since taking charge.
