Tottenham Hotspur fans delighted to see Mason at the training ground

Tottenham Hotspur fans, as well as the wider football community, gave an outpouring of love and support to Ryan Mason when he was forced to retire from the game earlier this season.

In a statement released via Hull City’s official website in February, the midfielder, who was playing for the Championship club at the time, confirmed that he was advised to end his professional career at the age off 26 due to a head injury.

Mason fractured his skull in January 2017 during a collision with Chelsea defender Gary Cahill, and went on to have surgery.

During his recovery, medical specialists warned the midfielder that returning to the pitch competitively could put him at risk of further damage.

Since hanging up his boots, Mason has been carrying out punditry duties and has also started to do down the avenue of coaching.

Tottenham, where the midfielder progressed through the youth ranks, confirmed on their official website that the ex-Hull player made a visit to Hotspur Way to learn the ropes.

Spurs fans were delighted to see his return.
