I have a perfect mentor – Mason Mount


The Englishman is happy to be under the close eye of Chelsea Manager, Frank Lampard. After admitting he has a perfect mentor.

Frank Lampard had an outstanding career with the Blues as a player, as his goals even as a midfielder made him one of the highest goalscorers at Stamford Bridge. Mason Mount, who is just 21 years of age has told the media he would love to replicate the performance of his coach, even as a midfielder.

Mount said”The manager has been great with me. He’s always giving me little bits of advice and he’s just been encouraging me to keep learning and to keep growing as a player. I’ve loved every minute of this season so far and hopefully we can come back and end it on a high now. I’d love to add more goals to my game, like Frank did when he played for Chelsea. If I could make even half of his goals then I’d be very happy! He was so dominant as a goalscoring midfielder. I’d also like to be successful like him in terms of trophies won. As young players coming through, you dream of lifting silverware and that’s no different to this team. We want to win trophies and having seen the Chelsea team when Lampard was playing, that’s something we can aspire to”.
