His electric performance was not only hailed by Chelsea supporters but by Real Madrid’s Luka Modric as well. The Real Madrid midfielder was quick to appreciate ensuing the clash as we wished the Chelsea midfielder luck for the showpiece summit clash.
“Mason Mount. Good luck in the final,” Modric said as he embraced Mount after the clash.
“Thank you, thank you,” Mount replied.
The praise is bound to have been worth its weight in gold for Mount with the Chelsea midfielder having earlier talked about how he used to watch Modric’s videos when he was a kid.
