Mason Mount has worn the captain’s armband twice and he admits it gives him confidence.
“I’ve had the captain’s armband twice now and that gives me extra confidence,” Mount told Chelsea’s official website.
“I have that belief that I’m doing well but I can also get even better. That’s something as a player that you need to really improve.
“I’m learning more and more about that role. I had it when I was a bit younger in the youth teams where I was captain a couple of times.”
“When you reach the senior game, you can still be someone that leads by example but you can’t just be that,” he added.
“You need to bring more to the team and as a captain at a big club like this, to have that personality and vocalness around the boys really helps.
“You look at the players in the past who have been top players and legends of this club, captains that you can try and take things off. That’s something I’ve always looked at growing up and I still look at now.”
