Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Ryan Mason is delighted, on a personal level, with how his breakthrough season has gone and says the squad is hungrier than ever.

The 23-year-old admitted he was a bit taken aback by his sudden elevation to first-team regular this season and is committed to continue improving to keep hold of that status.

"It's been a breakthrough season," Mason said.

"I'm delighted how it's been. The challenge now is to carry on and keep improving for next season.

"It is the first time I am going into a break feeling like a footballer. I have had 34, 35 games and that's the first time that's happened.

The Spurs squad have been involved in over 60 competitive matches this season, but Mason says the squad remains focused on finishing the season strongly.

"After the next three games I'll look forward to it, but probably within a couple of weeks I will be dying to get back into it and pre-season."

"I don't think it's hard at all [to remain motivated]," Mason added.

"We are a very young team and we want to be playing games.

"There is no sense of us thinking about our holidays at all.

"You can see with the effort the boys put in [against City] - we gave absolutely everything and that won't be a problem at all."
