Chelsea’s Cahill “devastated” As Mason Announced Retirement

Hull City midfielder Ryan Mason announced his retirement from soccer on Tuesday, over a year after suffering a fractured skull during a challenge with Chelsea’s Gary Cahill.

It was an ordinary challenge that ended in horrifying fashion, and Cahill remains shook up when it comes to his part in the deal.

Mason admitted he felt “lucky to be alive” after going head-to-head with Cahill, but returning to training in June didn’t progress to a return to the playing field.

Having made 494 senior appearances for Chelsea, Bolton, Aston Villa, Burnley, and Sheffield United, the 32-year-old Cahill has been involved in more than a few scary challenges, but nothing like this.

Devastated to hear today’s news from Ryan. Competing for a corner is something we’ve done thousands of times and to see those consequences for a top professional like Ryan is heartbreaking. Sending all my love to him and his family, and wishing him the best for the future.
