Hull City showed their support for their injured player Ryan Mason by donning kits with his name and number on them ahead of their EFL Cup Semi-Final clash with Manchester United.
Mason suffered a fractured skull in Hull’s 2-0 defeat to Chelsea on Sunday afternoon but has thankfully recovered after undergoing surgery in St Mary’s Paddington Hospital in West London where he has remained.
The 25-year-old’s injury has brought the footballing world together with former boss Mauricio Pochettino visiting the star in hospital along with Gary Cahill, John Terry and Steve Holland of Chelsea.
But it is his team mates who have possibly displayed the greatest show of solidarity as they kitted out in shirts with his name emblazoned on the back while they warmed up for their clash with United.

The gesture may turn out to be a lucky charm for the Tigers as they currently lead 1-0 thanks to Tom Huddlestone’s first half penalty.
