Tuchel’s praise for Mount and why he has full support from the boss

Thomas Tuchel says it is a pleasure to coach a player like Mason Mount due to his positive attitude both on and off the field.

Mount hit half a century of goal involvements for Chelsea at the weekend, with his two assists in our FA Cup quarter-final win against Middlesbrough taking his tally to 25, level with his number of goals for the club.

The boss believes it is his attitude both on and off the pitch which has contributed to his impressive success so early on in his Chelsea career.

‘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,’ Tuchel said when speaking about the midfielder. ‘It is always 100 per cent in matches, he accepts every challenge and that is why it is so nice to work with him.’

Mount has featured 67 times for Tuchel’s Blues, the most by any player in the current squad. The Bavarian says the England international has the club’s coaching staff’s full support because of his desire to hone and develop his game every single day.
