Thomas Tuchel has a responsibility to get the most out of the midfielder Mason Mount, who played at Derby and then at Chelsea with Frank Lampard.
Thomas Tuchel convinced Mason Mount that he can show him the same commitment Frank Lampard showed him and prove that a good person will succeed in football.
With some reason, the young England midfielder was described as a protege and favourite of Lampard, who, after a slump in performance, was sacked by Chelsea last month.
“On Mason, I cannot tell you where his limit is. It is obvious that he has a lot of potentials,” Tuchel said according to the official club website.
“Besides that, he’s a great footballer, he is a super nice guy. He is eager to win, he is hungry to learn, he is open-minded and he can perform for any manager.”
“This is the best thing. He really means it, he has this internal motivation and he is a very nice guy with a big personality and what else can you wish for?”
“He was always very good. Under Frank, he was a regular starter and it was clear he was a team player with the potential that he has.”
“We didn’t pick him for the first game because we opted for a slightly different profile for the two number 10 positions. When he came in, he showed what a big influence he can have from the bench.”
“You can be very sure that Mason leaves his heart on the pitch for Chelsea, and this is what we need. He is an absolute team player.”
