No a-Mount of hard work will deter Chelsea ace Mason

No a-Mount of hard work will deter Chelsea ace Mason

Mason Mount thinks his hard work has only just begun after being named one of FIVE Chelsea players on the Ballon d’Or shortlist.

After rising through the ranks at Stamford Bridge, the midfielder has already won the Champions League and Super Cup.

After nearly losing out on England’s Euro 2020 success in the summer, his inclusion among the 30 candidates for the coveted Ballon d’Or is due reward for his remarkable play.

Mount, 22, joins Blues teammates Cesar Azpilicueta, Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, and Romelu Lukaku in excellent company.

The Three Lions midfielder, who played in all but two of Chelsea’s Premier League games last season, stated: “It was unique. I found out after everyone else.

“It’s certainly a dream to be among those names.

“When you work hard for years and then witness something like that, it proves that everything pays off.

“It’s only the beginning. It’s not over yet.

“The most important thing for me is that I continue to strive to exceed the goals I’ve set for myself.

Mount started for England in the Euro 2020 final against Italy in July.

After Leonardo Bonucci canceled out Luke Shaw’s early goal, the match at Wembley went into extra time before going to penalties.

Jack Grealish had already replaced Mount before the penalty kicks were taken, but he shared the disappointment of his teammates who failed from 12 yards.

He continued, saying: “It was such a tragedy for us to come this far and then fail at the final hurdle. It was a challenging one.

“We are football players. We must focus on the next objective and challenge that will be presented to us.

“When you look at the guys we have [in England], the leaders would never let that attitude go.

“As a group, we establish such a high standard that we never want to go below it.”

Mount is likely to start for Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions against Hungary at the national stadium Thursday evening.
