Ashley Cole Joins John Terry In Hailing Mason Mount
Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is currently one of the most talked-about players within and around the club as he continues to impress his new manager Thomas Tuchel both in training and on the pitch. The brilliant young midfielder was recalled from his loan spell from Derby Country by former manager Frank Lampard and was given more than enough time to showcase his talents as he hardly missed any minute of Premier League action under Lampard.
A lot of fans criticized Lampard for his decision to keep playing Mount ahead of Kovacic who was presumably a better option in the Blues' midfield, but Lampard turned dead ears to those thoughts and criticism as he stuck to his decision and kept playing the England international midfielder in his team.
As time went by, Mount began to improve his game and also started showing signs of what he is capable of and what could be expected of him by putting in some sublime performances at the heart of the Chelsea midfield, making fans forget that he is still young. Lampard lover Mount so much that fans and pundits began to call the young midfielder the 'Teacher's pet'. However, after proving that he is much more than just a teacher's pet, he earned his status as a pivotal member of the Chelsea team and went on to become one of their best players in the process.
Under Thomas Tuchel, many believed Mount would no longer be a part of the starting lineup, but the reverse has been the case. Instead, he has blended well into the former Borussia Dortmund manager's tactics and has continued to retain his position in the team.
Terry has since hailed Mount, as he posted a picture of himself and a young Mason at the Chelsea training ground together. Ashley Cole then added a comment on the post saying Mount is his favorite Chelsea player.
