Chelsea youngster Mason Mount is currently one of Frank Lampard’s key players as the Blues are firing on all cylinders.
At just age 20, Mount has broken into the Chelsea first team and is having a good season. Mount has featured in every Premier League and Champions League game for Chelsea this season and has scored four times.
Mount has revealed that his father told him to leave Chelsea when he was 14, but he remained adamant that he was going to stay at Chelsea and make it at the club.
He told the Sun: “When I was 14, my dad told me I should leave Chelsea.
“There are so many good players in the academy and a lot of people were saying not many youngsters ever get to make it here.
“That was the discussion we had but I told him that I’d be the first graduate to make it since John Terry — because it was always my goal to play for Chelsea and I didn’t want to go anywhere else.
“I loved the competition and I think the fact that Fik (Tomori) and myself both worked for Frank last season gave us a bit of an advantage for coming into pre-season.
“Having an English manager who knows all the young English players coming through the academy has given both of us that confidence to go out and perform.”
