Former Chelsea skipper John Terry was very influential during his time at the club, and the club legend will be hailed as the greatest skipper to have captained the club.
Even in Terry’s absence, the 39-year-old is still passionate about the club and according to reports, he has been sending messages of support to Chelsea youngster Mason Mount.
After a successful loan spell with Derby County, Mount has been very impressive for the Blues this season and started the campaign with fine form as he scored five league goals at the start of the campaign.
However, Mount has come under heavy criticism as his form has dropped badly and the 20-year-old has gone 11 games without a goal for Chelsea in all competitions.
According to The Athletic, former Chelsea skipper John Terry, who’s currently the assistant manager at relegation threatened Aston Villa, has been regularly texting Lampard’s protege with words of advice in order to lift his spirit.
Mason Mount is a product of the Chelsea academy, and the young midfielder has benefitted from the transfer ban that was hit on the club. The young midfielder has claimed that he’s not afraid to compete with the big possible signings that are being linked with the club.
Mount told the Daily Mail: “For me, it’s about having that same attitude I have had since I was six and making sure I never lose it.
“You just have to fight. You know Chelsea can always buy £60 million or £70m or £80m players that are world-class. They want to come here and take my place.
“Just because I am an academy boy and young, that doesn’t mean anything. But the mentality I have means I won’t be pushed over easily.
“I will fight for my position and keep working hard. At a club as big as Chelsea you have to have that mentality. It always stuck with me. It’s why I am here in the first place.”
