Tottenham striker Kane sends heartfelt Twitter message to Ryan Mason after early retirement

Specialists have deemed it unsafe for Mason to continue his career and he announced his retirement on Tuesday morning.

On Tuesday, Hull City midfielder Ryan Mason was forced to retire-even though he was working toward a comeback-after he clashed with Chelsea's Gary Cahill in January 2017.

Now, over a year on from the injury, Mason has retired due to the advice of medical professionals.

Mason described the injury as "life-threatening" and said the decision, from a medical point of view, was a "no-brainer". And I think Ryan has explored everything he can.

"But a few weeks ago I had a follow-up CT scan and it revealed an issue with the brain that wasn't shown before".

"I have come to terms with it. I'm taking each day as it comes and I'm still dealing with a lot of fatigue". I've gone through that emotional side of it, of having to accept I won't be playing again. I didn't know if he played well or not but I loved him like a man.

In the final part of his post, he thanked his family and friends.

"Now I can look forward".

Having joined the club's academy at the age of eight, Mason spent 17 years as a Tottenham player before signing for Hull in 2016.

And in the immediate aftermath of their 2-2 draw against Juventus in the Champions League, Pochettino was keen to send his regards to Mason, assuring him that the "door is always open" for Mason to work with the Spurs coaching staff.

"I remember very, very well how we found him", Pochettino remembered.

Mason's former Spurs teammates paid their respects to him in the aftermath of his injury.

"After only a few tactical training sessions he was quick and he understood everything - the movement and the timing and the concept - that maybe for another player it takes a whole season, and I said "we have in front of us a very good player". He made 20 appearances for Hull before the incident last January. I have lived my dreams and I have achieved absolutely everything that I wanted to.
