Messi heaps praise on Chelsea starlet Mount as he tips him to reach the top



Mason Mount has continued his meteoric rise to the top of the game after having praise heaped upon his shoulders by none other than Lionel Messi.

Mount was enjoying a brilliant breakthrough season at Chelsea before the coronavirus shutdown, and it hasn't gone unnoticed throughout European football.

Barcelona superstar Messi, widely renowned as the best to ever play the game, is the latest to offer their thoughts on Mount after teaming up with Topps to create an exclusive pack of football cards.

As reported by Football London, Messi picked Mount in his 'youth on the rise' category, before going on to lavish praise on the England midfielder.

'Having watched him play he has the potential to be one of the best,' Messi said.

Mount was on course to be involved in Gareth Southgate's England squad for Euro 2020 before coronavirus forced the tournament back 12 months.

Despite the delay, Mount looks set to reach the very top of the game and is an important part of Frank Lampard's Chelsea plans over the coming years.

There has been plenty of competition in the Blues' midfield, but 21-year-old Mount has nailed down his spot ahead of the likes of Ross Barkley for the majority of the season.
