Chelsea playmaker Mason Mount has said he wants to grow as a leader next term.
He has already won the club’s Player of the Year award.
“I’m learning more and more about that role,” he told chelseafc.com. “I had it when I was a bit younger in the youth teams where I was captain a couple of times and leading the boys to a Youth Cup was special. I learnt a lot from that so now coming to this season, I can bring that experience I’ve had in the past and use it but also add things to it as well.
“When you reach the senior game, you can still be someone that leads by example but you can’t just be that. You need to bring more to the team and as a captain at a big club like this, to have that personality and vocalness around the boys really helps. You need that with a team like this, to lead them when games are tough, to really step up and be a big player, so that’s something I’ve learnt as well to add to my game.
“I’m always learning and that’s always going to be something that I’m going to get better and better with. You look at the players in the past who have been top players and legends of this club, captains that you can try and take things off. That’s something I’ve always looked at growing up and I still look at now.”
