“I’m back on the pitch the next morning for training, so even if I do somehow end up winning, it won’t be a big night of drinking, unfortunately,” Mason Mount joked when asked by GQ what would happen if he claims Ballon d’Or this year.
Clearly, the Chelsea attacker does not think he’ll win the prestigious award, but he is pleased to be on the shortlist.
“To be involved in something like this and to be selected to be in a category of 30 players of such standing is such a special achievement.
“I set goals and I want to achieve big things, but I didn’t ever think this would happen after two or three seasons. It’s blown my mind.”
The Ballon d’Or ceremony will take place in Paris on November 29.
