Former Chelsea youth coach Jody Morris is a proud coach to have seen one of his wards Mason Mount break into the the Chelsea first team and is now a key player for the club.

Morris and Frank Lampard have been hailed for helping Mount raise his game and also the platform to showcase his quality.

Morris who worked with Mount in the academy has revealed his pride at how far the young midfielder has come and has rated him as a £100m player.

“And me personally, in the whole 18 months that me and Frank were back at the club, if you look at that spell, I think Mason Mount was head and shoulders above any other performers in that team in terms of his consistency, his work rate, his performance, his day to day attitude and the way he’s grown,” said Morris.

“Under Thomas Tuchel he’s performing at that level again and proving to another top-quality manager that he’s invaluable.

“He’s getting better every year and I think he could be one of the top players for Chelsea and England over the next 10 years. I think you’re talking about a £100m player.”
