Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount has admitted it’s a massive honour to wear the Chelsea shirt, whether in training or in a game.
The 20-year-old signed a five-year contract with the Blues on Monday following an impressive 2018/19 season on loan in the Championship at Derby County and is currently with the squad on our pre-season trip to Japan.
“Every time I put on the Chelsea shirt, whether in training or a game, it’s a massive honour for me,” Mount told Chelsea’s official website.
“When you’ve been at a club for such a long time and you get to put that shirt on, there’s no other feeling apart from you want to just go out and give it your all. That’s something I’m really looking forward to.
“The team is unbelievable and there’s some world-class players in the dressing room so the best thing for me at the moment is to learn from them as much as I can. I want to play as many games as I can for Chelsea. I want to score as many goals, get as many assists and work as hard as I can to do that.”
Mason, who scored in Chelsea’s 4-0 win over St Patrick’s, admitted signing a contract extension with the Blues is a proud moment for him and his family.
“It’s a massively proud moment for myself and my family,” Mount said after signing the contract.
“I joined this club at six years old and it was always my goal to play for the first team one day. Even though I went out on loan for two years, my goal was always to come back and play – my mind has never really moved from that.
“I’m really looking forward to the coming season now and working hard to have an impact here at Chelsea. I’ve been at the club for a long time already and hopefully I’ll stay for a long time to come.”
