Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount would be happy to see a World Cup happen every two years.

The World Cup currently holds every four years and FIFA are contemplating a shift to every two years.

Many current players have spoken out against the plan but Mount is one of the first active footballers in a major European league to throw his weight behind the idea.

He said, as per TribalFootball: “Yes, I would love that. As players we want to play in as many top competitions and top games as we can, as Gareth Southgate has said.

“We want to be involved in those big games.

“But it would be good to have the players’ input – that would be positive to help shape the future.”
