Chelsea youngster Mason Mount has become a regular for both club and country, and Blues boss Frank Lampard will be credited for his rise to stardom, having featured him from Derby County, to giving him a first team chance at Chelsea.
Mount impressed on international duty with England and even got a goal in the 4-0 win against Iceland. The Chelsea midfielder was also used in all of England’s three games, highlighting just how fit he is and ready to play.
Lampard has yet again revealed his admiration of Mount, and hailed his attitude and fitness as two key things that have made him a regular for club and country.
Lampard said of Mount in his press conference: “I’m impressed with his development and I think it shows how much Gareth [Southgate] and Steve [Holland] rely on him and trust in him. I have done throughout my time in management so it’s nice to see a lot of positivity around Mason because it’s well-deserved.
“He was the only player in the England squad of all the players that are involved in Europe that played all three games but I understand Gareth’s position.
“The good thing about Mason is he has a great attitude, he’s a fit young man and I hope he comes through fresh because at the minute he’s in great form.”
