Joe Cole, former England midfielder, slammed Mason Mount’s critics in a recent interview after the Chelsea star got online backlash for his performances..
Cole was asked during a chat with Football Daily on YouTube if the criticism directed at Mount was unjustified.
The former Chelsea male stated: “That’s the signal of the times, that people do not wish to admit they were wrong,” she said.
Anyone who isn’t having Mason Mount has to look at themselves. ”
Cole was then asked what Mount might do in case they played the same development.
He replied: “He is more rounded.” If you could time travel back in time and place all of these great players back in our era, Mason would have the ability to adjust much more quickly.
The Chelsea fans have always backed Mount, because he’s regarded by them as among the best players for the club and country. But the 22-year-old is also a target of criticism and abuse on social media.
Mount broke successfully into the first team squad of Chelsea under the direction of Frank Lampard in 2019 after a fruitful loan spell with Lampard for Derby County.
He has since been one of the best performers for Stamford Bridge.
For the second year in a row, Mount was voted Chelsea Player of The Year. During the 21 / 22 campaign, Mount finished as the club’s best goal scorer in the Premier League with eleven. Additionally, he scored more than 29 goals across all competitions during the entire season.
Mount’s criticism came after he missed an important penalty against Liverpool in the FA Cup final last May.
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson was spotted consoling Mount following the fight and quickly defended his England team mate, saying that Mount has the’ world at his feet’.
Henderson said, “That’s always a huge thing for me. Respect the opponent, especially when it comes to players you play with out of your national team.
“When you understand how good they’re and that they’re good individuals, especially in penalty shootouts, you are aware that it is never nice for individuals to avoid penalties.”
He added: “I just knew he would be feeling really down, and also be truthful, he most likely did not need me going over there thinking again, though I just needed to offer him a little bit of support because he is a top player, an excellent lad, and also he is still extremely young.”
“He’s got the planet at his feet, and I’m certain he is going to bounce back. He is going to step up and put the ball back into the net when he has another chance..
