Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount has become a mainstay in the Chelsea team, and he had a wonderful season where he was named Player of the Season.

Mount who has been at Chelsea since age 8, has come a long way at the club. He broke into the first team under Frank Lampard in 2019, and his football journey has been nothing short of extraordinary.

Mount has now admitted that he has been amazed at how his career has come under a short while. One other thing that has surprised Mount is the fact that Chelsea had two managers in one year — something he had never experienced in his career before.

“I’ve learnt a lot,” he said. “I had never experienced a new manager coming in halfway through the season but Thomas brought different tactics and had a different look on football. All the boys bought into it.

“For me personally, everything has happened so quick. You don’t have time to pinch yourself or look back at what’s happened. I made my 100th appearance for Chelsea in April and it baffles me how that’s gone so quickly but football is a short career.

“The seasons fly by so you have to make the most of every season and enjoy it, which is always something I try to do. Don’t look too far ahead or too far back, just stay in the moment and try to do the big things in football, which is winning trophies.”
