Chelsea legend Ashley Cole has hailed Mason Mount as Thomas Tuchel’s most important Chelsea player.
According to Cole, Mount has now established himself as a ‘vital’ part of Chelsea’s team under Tuchel.
“He’s a humble boy, a Chelsea fan, living the dream,” Cole told Sky Sports.
“But within that he wants to work hard, he wants to improve, he wants to get better, he wants to score goals, he wants to run for his team.
“He shows that enthusiasm day in, day out. I think that’s what makes him, for me, one of the top players in world football right now, definitely in the Premier League.
Of course, he’s vital for Chelsea.”
Asked if he’s Tuchel’s most important player, Cole replied: “Yes, he’s pivotal in the way they want to press, the way they want to get after the ball.
“The way he can keep the ball for his team, change the speed of attacks, his understanding of being able to get in between lines, turn, and then drive. He’s vital for this Chelsea team.”
