Mason Mount played with Frank Lampard at Derby and then at Chelsea, but now it is Thomas Tuchel’s job to get the best out of the midfielder. Thomas Tuchel is convinced by Mason Mount that he can demonstrate the same devotion Frank Lampard showed him and prove that a good individual can be successful in football.
For some reason, the young England midfielder was described as Lampard’s protege and favorite, who last month was sacked by Chelsea after a slump in performance.
“On Mason, I cannot tell you where his limit is. It is obvious that he has a lot of potentials,” said Tuchel, according to the official website of the club.
“He’s a brilliant footballer, besides, he’s a super nice person. He’s willing to succeed, he’s hungry to learn, he’s open-minded, and he can perform for any boss.
That’s the best part. He means it, he’s got that inner drive, and he’s a really sweet guy with a big personality, and what else do you want?
He was still really strong. He was a regular starter under Frank and it was evident he was a team player with the potential he had.
We didn’t select him for the first game because for the two number 10 slots, we opted for a slightly different profile. He showed, when he came in, what great impact he could have from the bench.”
