During his teenage years at the Chelsea academy, Mason Mount was invited to be a ball boy at Stamford Bridge home fixtures.

Mount has revealed the advice Jose Mourinho, who was Chelsea boss at the time, gave him while he was a ball boy.

“The first thing I really remember was being a ball bay at the games,” Mount said.

“That was a big thing for me. I was so buzzing about that and you can’t really be any closer than that!

“One moment that stands out was under Jose Mourinho. If we were winning in Champions League games then he would tell us to keep hold of the ball and not to throw it back so quickly!”
