Harry Kane has added his voice to the messages of support for former Spurs player Ryan Mason, after the player was forced to take early retirement following a clash of heads with Gary Cahill.
Hull City put out a statement that the player would be retiring with immediate effect after the injury he picked up playing against Chelsea on January 22.
Talking to Sky Sports, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has said the door is always open for Mason, with talk of a possible coaching role.
And now Harry Kane has sent a heartfelt message on Twitter, saying, “So proud to have come through the system and played at the highest level with you.
“You career was ended too early but it’s just the beginning of a new chapter!”
He posted the message with an image of him and Mason playing for Tottenham on his personal Twitter account on Wednesday lunchtime.
