Thomas Tuchel was full of praise for Mason Mount after his masterclass against Middlesbrough in the FA Cup. The Blues midfielder assisted both goals in the game. The boss revealed what he is like behind the scenes:
“It is always a pleasure to work with Mason because he is the kind of guy who comes with a smile on his face to every single training session. It is always 100 percent in matches, he accepts every challenge and that is why it is so nice to work with him.
“He is full of quality and he has a “blue” heart,’ added Tuchel.
“Mason loves the club, he loves Chelsea. That is how he plays and that is why he has our full support.
“He is always switched on and ready to push himself to the limit and that is the foundation as to why he gets our full support because he deserves it.”
Tuchel clearly loves Mount as he has also made the most appearances in the current squad for Chelsea since the boss took over.
