After his breakthrough to the first team, Chelsea’s wonderkind Mason Mount discussed his ambitions, goals and role models he looked up to while growing up and still doing so.
The teenager, who is just among the many Blues youngster, who have been loaned for this season, shared he wants to emulate the likes of Frank Lampard, Luka Modric and Anders Iniesta.
There is no surprise as to why is he being called a wonderkind – he has been able to create the amazing eight chances in Vitesse’s game against Lazio in the Europa League earlier this season – the most chances any teenager has been able to create ever in the championship.
“My goal is to play at the highest level I can,” Mount shared, according to football.london. “To get to the top, that’s the goal of every young football player. I want to play in the Champions League; that’s the pinnacle of club football. I am working towards that. I am working hard in training every day to achieve that.”
“When I was growing up and playing for Chelsea, Frank Lampard is someone that I would always watch. He is a goalscoring midfielder. I was watching his games, his goals and how he arrives into the box. He is always in the right position, so that’s something I try to look at and emulate.”
“Also Luka Modric and Andres Iniesta; I think they are definitely top, top players. I always try to watch their games and take little bits from them,” Mount added as well.
