Chelsea’s very own Mason Mount has been voted the club’s Player of the Year for 2020-21, putting a lovely bow on what’s been an excellent season for club and country, domestically and on the European stage.
Be it under Frank Lampard or Thomas Tuchel, in midfield or in attack, central or out wide, on or off the ball, the 22-year-old has been a player most key to our gameplans, ambitions, and results. Having recently reached 100 senior appearances for the club in just a couple seasons and just one goal shy of reaching double figures for the season, it’s been a remarkable rise for the boy who joined the Academy before age 6, worked his way up the ranks, did the loan thing, and has now established himself as one of the first names on the team sheet. He’s even worn the armband a couple times now.
Mount becomes the first Chelsea Academy graduate to win the club’s Player of the Year award since John Terry in 2006. And he’s the youngest to win it since also John Terry, back in 2001.
And he’s just getting started.
Congrats, Mason! Here’s to many more!
