Many players offered their public support, and one man Mason has got to know well since the clash with Gary Cahill is Petr Cech, who offered his support and visited Mason after the head injury - and is still in contact with the player to this day.

Earlier, Mason announced that, despite his best efforts, he was calling time on his football career.

Former Hull City, Tottenham and England midfielder Ryan Mason has announced his retirement from football due to a medical issue.

"Of course the door is open to help him; myself, the coaching staff and the club, because we love him and all his family".

Mason sustained a fractured skull after competing with Cahill during a corner in a Premier League match last January.

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech, who himself suffered a skull fracture while playing for Chelsea in 2006, praised Mason for the way he dealt with his rehabilitation.

"I can confirm that following specialist medical advice I am having to retire from playing professional football", Mason said in a statement. I asked Jesus [Perez, assistant manager] 'Who is this guy?' He said, 'Ryan Mason - in the last five seasons, he was always on loan but never played because of injuries'.

Talking to Sky Sports, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has said the door is always open for Mason, with talk of a possible coaching role. Don't worry Ryan, you're going to be a successful person outside the pitch! After only a few training sessions, he understood everything, [including] what another player needs a year to understand - the tactics, the movement, the concepts.

"When we were at Spurs, we thought he was the one that was really going to scoot on and be everything we thought he had the ability to be". And I think Ryan has explored everything he can.

'The doc, to be fair to him, had waited for the right moment to talk me through the accident and the operation.

A top footballer would be forgiven for reacting with anger and frustration after having their career taken away from them at such as young age. If he has the footballing brain that Pochettino says he does, I'd like to keep him close by.
