Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed he can’t understand why Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is being criticised by Chelsea fans.
When told Mount still has his critics despite his good form, Lampard responded: “I’m not sure what they are if they are his critics. I’m not sure how anybody could really criticise him of late. I felt it last year.
“Last year Mason was playing regularly for us and I felt some of the critics – in the modern world it’s really easy to hear them even if you don’t use social media, you lot ask me about it all the time.
“Mason’s type, the type of midfield player he is, he does so much great work for the team off the ball, which I think for naked eye is not as exciting as an overhead kick or treble step over.
“He does all those basics well, he moves the ball so quickly, he’s a great teammate, we’ve seen recently he scores goals, he finds assists, he does all those things so I don’t think it matters if people are critical in any way.
“One thing he has got as well is a really great attitude.
“He has a really great way of seeming like he is never perturbed by critics outside. The critics are wrong. There is no doubt about that.
“Anyone who knows football and watches Mason Mount play understands what an incredible talent he is. He’s just turned 22 . Imagine when he’s 25, imagine when he’s 27. So the critics don’t matter when it comes to Mason.”
