Chelsea defender David Luiz has hailed young Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount as the present and future of Chelsea.
Luiz has known Mount since he was a little kid in the academy and is happy to see the young midfielder progress to the first team.
The 20 year old midfielder spent last season on loan at Derby County under Frank Lampard and impressed enormously.
Luiz also praised Mount’s attitude and application in training since returning from loan.
“He’s my boy! I think we had the opportunity to meet each other years and years ago when he was just a little kid, 10 or 11 years old, and now to have the opportunity to play with him is great,’ Luiz told the George Benson Football YouTube channel.
“I think he did great when he was at Derby. I’m so happy because I’m seeing a player with a great mentality, great talent.
“Everybody knows he’s got the talent, everybody knows he’s got the goals, but I love to see the way he trains, the way he likes to listen and try to improve. I think he is going to be the future of Chelsea – the present and the future – and England for sure.”
