It has emerged that Chelsea star Reece James has reached out to Bobby Copping with a beautiful message on Instagram after the Peterborough ace was forced to retire at 19 with a head injury.
As per BBC Sport, Copping suffered a mini seizure after challenging for a header in training last July, which left him hospitalised for four days.
Unfortunately Copping was hit with the same problem when he made his comeback later in 2020, this has left the talent forced to retire at the age of just 19 years old.
BBC Sport report that Peterborough have handed Copping a job in business operations. It’s added that Reece James has also offered Copping a meal out in London once the pandemic is over.
