Petr Cech Says Ryan Mason Should Be Admired After Announcing Retirement

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech believes Ryan Mason should be admired for attempting to resurrect his playing career after suffering a fractured skull.

Cech suffered his own major head injury in 2006 when playing for Chelsea against Reading. He was able to return to action within three months and sympathised with Mason, who on Tuesday accepted medical advice and announced his retirement.

Midfielder Mason, who was capped once by England against Italy in 2015, clashed heads with Chelsea defender Gary Cahill at Stamford Bridge when playing for Hull 13 months ago. The accidental collision caused the injury that led 26-year-old Mason to spend so long on the sidelines.
