Forced Out! Hull City Ryan Manson retires from football aged 26 due to serious head injury

Hull City midfielder Ryan Mason has been forced to retire from football following the head injury he sustained at Chelsea in January 2017, the Championship club has confirmed.

Mason, 26, has not played since a clash of heads with Gary Cahill at Stamford Bridge left him with a fractured skull and requiring surgery.

The former Tottenham man, who spent a week in hospital following his operation, said he felt “lucky to be alive” after the incident.

Mason won a single cap for England – against Italy in 2015 – and had been hopeful of a return to action, saying in May that he was looking forward to “returning a better player”.

However, Hull released a statement on Tuesday to announce that Mason had retired from the sport with immediate effect.

“Ryan has sought the guidance of numerous world-renowned neurologists and neuro surgeons who have all advised that a return to competitive football is not advised,” read the release.
