Messi surrenders to Lampard’s new Chelsea gem

first_imgFrank Lampard He arrived on the Stamford Bridge bench last summer with the possibility of signing reinforcements banned due to the punishment imposed by UEFA. This is why the former player blue was forced to make use of the quarry and trust the new batch of Chelsea footballers. Specifically, in three of them: Callum Hudson-Odoi, Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount. And it is precisely the latter who has landed in a better way in the elite.The very young 21-year-old midfielder packed just six to trade Portsmouth for London and enter the quarry blue. He served in the lower categories until the summer of 2017, at which time he was transferred to the Dutch Vitesse. His stay in the tulip country would last only one season, since in 2018 he returned to British lands leaving again on loan to Derby County, militant in the Championship, the English second division. In the summer of 2019, Lampard believed that it would be useful for his new project. I was right. Mason Mount has not only earned a fixed position based on numbers (six goals and four assists), but, until the break, it has curdled an enormous season. Despite his youth, he has managed to sit Barkley on the bench and become a regular at the Stamford Bridge team. It is no coincidence that more than one has fallen in love with their high level, including Leo Messi, the Barcelona star.The Argentine star assured, in an interview collected by Football London and Daily Mail, that the one from Portsmouth “It has the potential to be one of the best.” This is also contemplated by Gareth Southgate, England’s national coach, whose idea was that Mount would be part of the 23 selected to play in the Euro Cup. However, due to the postponement of the tournament until next year due to the coronavirus, everything has been left in the air. But Chelsea’s young promise will continue to fight to not lower the level, continue to be decisive for Lampard and earn a place in the English team next year.last_img read more
