Tomas Tuchel heaped praise on Chelsea promising 22-years-old midfielder



The German tactician Thomas Tuchel has been thoroughly impressed with midfielder Mason Mount since taking over at Chelsea.

The Englishman has been one of the standout performers for the Blues this season, but there was the possibility that Mason could drop out of favour with the departure of club legend Frank Lampard and the arrival of Thomas.

The 22-year-old Mount was on the bench for the German’s first match in charge, fuelling these concerns, but Mason has returned to the starting eleven in the next two games and has impressed in back-to-back victories.

Thomas says he has been watching his progress for some time and hasn’t been surprised by his fine displays since he became his boss.

‘It was very clear before because we watched the team and he was a regular starter with Frank,’ said Thomas. ‘We had no doubt he had potential and was the team player that he is.’

The former Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund boss is clearly going to keep the player as an important part of his team, though, and believes he can improve into a world-class talent.

‘Is there room to improve? Yes. Is there a lot of room to improve? Yes, even for him,’ said the head coach.

‘There are no gifts so he has to earn his place in every training session and every match. But he knows about it. He is a competitor.

‘He has a lot of potential. Besides being a great footballer, he is a super-nice guy. He is eager to learn, hungry to win, open-minded and he can perform for any manager.’
