“It was an emotional roller coaster and I’m glad I’m here,” says Mason Tuesday in a statement. “I’m happy to say that I am at home now and rest, handle, and recover.”

The midfielder, who once came out for the English national team, do not know when he returns. “I watch it from now on every day and concentrate me fully on my rehabilitation.”

“I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming support that I and my entire family have received. Every message gave me strength. I can’t express in words how much it makes me want to.”
