The youngest of the four Chelsea players sent on loan to Vitesse for the season, Mason Mount is also the one receiving the most plaudits in the Dutch press.
The 18-year-old scored his second goal of the season against PSV Eindhoven at the weekend in a 4-2 loss by putting a great outside of the boot chipped volley into the back of the net.
On Wednesday, De Telegraaf have a short article on the young Chelsea prodigy, which is already the second they have published this season, both times highly praising Mount.
If that wasn’t enough, each article has also included quotes from Vitesse’s manager, Henk Fraser, who is close to running out of superlatives for the Blues’ loanee, as he continues to impress on and off the pitch.
He said: “Mount is just a wonderful player. A beautiful football player, but also an eager and very respectful boy. I also need to protect him a bit and there are necessary things he has to learn.
He takes a lot of risks in his game. That is difficult for the opponent, but sometimes he does that in places where he shouldn’t”.
Very eager to play more regularly, Mount explained he isn’t used to sitting on the bench, always featuring for Chelsea’s youth teams, and he hopes things change soon.
If he carries on performing as well as he has done during his cameos, perhaps Fraser won’t have a choice.
