Wayne Rooney and Sir Alex Ferguson join Spurs players in sending get well messages to stricken Ryan MasonSpurs players wore 'get well soon Ryan'  T-shirts before Wycombe cup tieMason suffered a fractured skull after clashing heads with Chelsea's Gary CahillThe midfielder is recovering in St Mary's Hospital after undergoing surgeryMason started his career with Spurs before moving to Hull City last summer

As Hull City make a poignant return to west London only a week after midfielder Ryan Mason suffered a fractured skull against Chelsea, their captain Michael Dawson has revealed Wayne Rooney and Sir Alex Ferguson have been among members of the football community who have contacted him to pass on their best wishes to the stricken player.

Dawson was the first Hull player to visit Mason at St Mary’s Hospital last Monday following his sickening clash of heads with Gary Cahill and in a strange quirk of fate, the Tigers are at Fulham – less than two miles from Stamford Bridge – for an FA Cup fourth round tie on Sunday.

‘Everything that went on Sunday and the injury to Ryan, football comes second. The phone calls from well-wishers and people in the football world for him has been incredible,’ says Dawson.

‘They’ve come in from everywhere, from different football clubs, it’s been amazing. I have had dozens of messages, speaking to Alex (Ferguson) and people like Wayne Rooney wanting to get in touch with him and wishing him well.

‘I’ve heard from people across the board and I know how much it has meant to his family. For them to go through this, it’s terribly sad. Football has come together. We haven’t stopped thinking about Ryan and we won’t. We wish him a speedy recovery and hopefully we will go and see him when we are down in London.’

Given Mason’s situation, a managerial change with Marco Silva replacing Mike Phelan and the sale of key players Jake Livermore and Robert Snodgrass, Hull are showing incredible spirit in their fight against relegation, and beat Manchester United 2-1 in the EFL Cup semi-final second leg on Thursday night, even though they bowed out 3-2 on aggregate.

Dawson assures Tigers fans the players aren’t throwing in the towel despite the problems mounting up.

‘You look at what the manager has done since he came in. We had a right go at United to try and win and get to Wembley. We lost 3-2 on aggregate to a top team like United,’ said the whole-hearted central defender.

‘The manager has a philosophy of football and has got us playing a different way. We knew the Premier League was never going to be easy but we’ve given ourselves a fighting chance and we keep going. Our performances have been good for six weeks.

‘We don’t get involved in issues to do with the owner and manager. But let me tell you the players in that dressing-room have massive belief, you have seen that in recent weeks, and we will keep going right until the end. We have a great group of players.’

The 25-year-old is now recovering in hospital after undergoing emergency surgery 

Midfielder Tom Huddlestone revealed the Hull players have sent a message to Mason. ‘A video was organised for everyone to say a little piece individually. That got emailed down to his fiancée for him to see as and when he pleases,’ he said.

‘Everyone’s thoughts are with him and hopefully he can make a swift recovery.’

Even so, the departure of Snodgrass to West Ham – Hull’s best player in the first half of the season – does leave a big hole.

‘It will be a big miss to lose Snoddy,’ said Huddlestone. ‘He was on all our set pieces and was our leading scorer so it will be a big miss.

‘But as we’ve shown, the manager has recruited well, especially in offensive positions. And the window is open for a few days and I’m sure he will replace him with quality.’

The club’s new Brazilian signing Evandro will now be given the responsibility alongside Huddlestone himself to compensate for Snodgrass on free-kicks and corners.
