Chelsea legend believes Mason Mount is ‘a complete player’

A former Chelsea star has been heaping praise on Mason Mount of late.

Mason Mount impressing

Mount, of course, was thrust into the Chelsea first-team picture during 2019/20 when Frank Lampard took the reins.

Lampard had previously managed Mount whilst the pair were at Derby and trusted him to shine in the Premier League despite his limited experience.

This proved to be a wise decision as Mount had a solid breakout season with Chelsea and took his game to another level in 2020/21.

Even after Lampard was gone and Thomas Tuchel came in, Mount remained an integral part of Chelsea’s set-up. And, despite the Blues paying big money for Kai Havertz and Timo Werner over the summer, it is Mount who has impressed the most of all Chelsea’s attack-minded talents of late.

Zola praises Mount

The 22-year-old would score nine and assist nine in 54 outings this past season, including providing the assist for Kai Havertz’s winner in the Champions League final.

Now, Gianfranco Zola, who scored 75 and assisted 20 during his time at Chelsea, has been discussing Mason Mount.

And the Italian has been full of praise for the Englishman, labelling him the complete player:

“He’s become a complete player.

“He can attack, he can score, he can assist and defend.

“This is necessary in modern football. Before, if you were able to score goals you could do that, but now if you want to be successful you have to work so hard. We saw that the other day [in the Champions League final].”
