Antonio Conte addressed Ryan Mason’s retirement during this afternoon’s press conference, with the Italian applying a typically classy touch to proceedings.

Mason fractured his skull during an aerial duel with Chelsea skipper Gary Cahill in 2017, an injury which left the Hull City midfielder’s career in serious jeopardy.

It’s unclear at this stage what the future holds for Mason, with reports claiming he is to pursue a career in coaching.

Whatever Mason choses to do next, it appears he has the full support of everyone at Chelsea!
