Petr Cech: Ryan Mason an inspiration'

Mason suffered the injury when he was playing against Chelsea in January past year, following an aerial collision with his England team-mate Gary Cahill, and needed life-saving surgery in a hospital in London which relieved pressure on his brain.

Mason was aiming for a miraculous comeback after what appeared to be a successful recovery, but revealed this week that he has been forced to retire on medical advice.

Crystal Palace star sends message to Hull City's Ryan Mason who has announced his retirement. It was a awful clash but I thought he would come back from it.

A recent CT scan showed the injury's effects were more serious than had previously been realised.

He added, "I feel content knowing that I dedicated my life to be able to play football at the highest level, hard work really does pay off!" Any earlier and I don't think I would have had the capacity to deal with it'. I've gone through that emotional side of it, of having to accept I won't be playing again.

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

"Now I can look forward".

The Argentine remembers bonding with Mason during a half hour conversation in the airport ahead of Spurs" pre-season tour of the United States in 2014 and was convinced he had a "good player' at his disposal after watching the midfielder in action for the first time.

What the future holds for the former England midfielder remains to be seen, though he's received an incredible gesture from one of his old clubs, Tottenham.

'Of course the door is open to help him; myself, the coaching staff and the club, because we love him and all his family. "I love the game, I always will and I am excited to see where football will take me next".

"I'm a Tottenham man, I've come through the club and it's in my DNA".

'They acted very quickly and within minutes I was in surgery.

"I am excited about the future, I feel like I have still got a lot to give". To have had the honour of captaining the team fills me with vast pride. 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.
