Graeme Souness says Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount has ‘all the things you need’ to become a ‘top player’.
Mount has established himself as one of Chelsea’s most important stars over the past 18 months, first starring under former manager Frank Lampard and now impressing for new Blues boss Thomas Tuchel.
Mason Mount can be a top player for Chelsea
Mount is now closing in on 100 appearances for Chelsea, while he has become a regular for Gareth Southgate’s England side, playing 13 matches.
He said: ‘Mason Mount constantly gets picked in that Chelsea team and already it appears that Thomas Tuchel, their new manager, likes him as well, despite the experienced squad they have.
‘When results weren’t what Frank Lampard wanted and he had the temptation to revert back to experience, he stuck with the youngster and that says a great deal.
‘Mount sees a picture, has great technique and athleticism and also looks to have a fabulous attitude – all the things you need to be a top player.’
