Former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard was believed to have shown unnecessary favours to Mason Mount, despite the consistent performances from the young midfielder.
A new boss has come in, and Thomas Tuchel has revealed how much he has been impressed with the 22-year-old.
According to Tuchel, Mount gives 100% on the training ground and on the pitch, and he also cares a lot about the club.
“He cares a lot about Chelsea, he cares a lot about his teammates, he is leaving his heart on the pitch,” Tuchel said during his pre-match press conference ahead of the Tottenham game.
“If you train with Mason, he gives 100% every minute and this is the best level to grow. It’s the best situation to start and the best situation to become a top, top player.
“He has everything needed to reach higher and higher levels. I don’t know where his limits are but right now we will push him and support him.
“What makes me very happy is he is a nice guy, an open guy. He has a positive aura and energy in the dressing room and it’s a real pleasure to work with the whole team and Mason.”
Surely, Lampard may be right after all — Mason Mount may just be the future captain of the club.
