Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount has gotten huge endorsement from Manchester United legend Roy Keane.

Roy Keane, who was known to be a controversial figure during his playing days and even now as a pundit, has given glowing report on Mount.

Mount has faced the sticks from many fans on social media, but Keane who was a midfield general during his playing days, has waved away such talks and has hailed the young midfielder.

“This boy [Mason Mount], I like him, he’s got so much going for him,” the former Man United captain said on Sky Sports.

“He always steps to the next level. He scores goals, assists, sees a pass, I like everything about him.

“Apparently, there are critics on social media, I don’t follow social media, thank God, but I like the look of this kid.”

Mount had a good game against Tottenham and had a moment of brilliance when he tested Hugo Lloris with a fine shot.
