Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount was introduced to another level of football, as the Blues faced Bayern Munich in the round of 16 Champions League clash.
Chelsea lost the first leg at Stamford Bridge 3-0, before being beaten 4-1 away at the Allianz Arena.
Mount has admitted his awe in the quality of the Bayern Munich team, and was particularly impressed with Thiago Alcantara, and has vowed to also improve his game.
“Bayern have some unbelievable world-class players… [Robert] Lewandowski, [Joshua] Kimmich and Thiago in midfield, I just couldn’t get near him,” he told Sport Bible.
“They moved the ball around the team so quickly. When you’re up against players like that you’re thinking, ‘How are we going to stop this?’
“It was a big moment, it opened my eyes. It made me realise, ‘This is the next level, this where you need to be’. And I am determined to work hard and reach that level.
“It was a tough lesson, but we’ve taken so much from that experience and we’ll come back stronger.”
