“Young players watching the game, if you watch Mason Mount, he’s efficient with it, and he can bang, but it’s the work ethic and the positions he takes up defensively,” Rio Ferdinand said on his YouTube channel.
“That’s why he’ll always play for England because I think you can rely on him.”
“Mount is a mad player. On and off the ball, that’s what I love about him. He gives you both sides of the game.”
Mount has been in form for Chelsea lately, and has contributed 18 goals for Chelsea in the Premier League alone.
‘I’ll try to get there’: Kai Havertz shuts down Drogba comparison immediately
“It is good when being compared to players that have played well in the past,” Kai Havertz told Chelsea TV.
“It definitely feels good when the fans or people compare you to such a player.
“He has scored even more important goals than me. So, in the next few years, I’ll try to get there so that I fully deserve that comparison.’
Havertz has been Chelsea’s live wire in attack with 13 goals so far this season.
He did score the winner in the Champions League final and the World Club Cup, but he’s nowhere near Drogba, who scored 164 for the club.
