Mason Mount grew up to represent a club he loved since childhood, he is one of the rare footballers who emerged as world-class while in his childhood club.
Mount has been with Chelsea since his academy days and an old image of the midfielder has emerged.
A younger Mount can be seen looking very happy with club legend Didier Drogba:
And Chelsea fans love this image as they reacted to it on Reddit:
HotTropix: “Mount looks like a mom at the grocery store who takes a picture with a celebrity”
piperpike: “In this picture: Blues who got to run with the UCL trophy.”
JTown021: “You are looking at two SEPARATE champions league winning blues! Wow, that’s crazy to even think about. Different generations, same bleed blue mentality.”
thirdsunday24: “This picture makes me realise two things – I’m old and I bloody love this club.”
madapenguinzvi: “To think that the Bieber-hairstyle boy grew up to carry the torch forward from Lampard. He’s Chelsea through and through, I just love this image.”
tttakeusplaces: “Aww haha what a cute image. Mount has more hair than Manchester City have history! I’m sure Drogba inspired him a lot, so good to see this.”
