Didier Drogba has posted a heartfelt reaction after seeing the banner that was displayed by Chelsea fans at the weekend for Mason Mount.

Blues supporters showcased a new banner at Stamford Bridge on Saturday during the 3-0 home win against Aston Villa, which helped continue an unbeaten start to the new Premier League season. 

“Mason Mount. The boy who had a dream,” it read.

Mount, 22, is pictured lifting the Champions League trophy in the banner after last season’s European heroics. He memorably provided the assist for Kai Havertz’s winning goal in the final against Manchester City.

The attacking midfielder is a star to come from the academy at Cobham, so is understandably a massive fan favourite.  

Chelsea legend Drogba has given his seal of approval with a four-word message about the banner.

“Dream big, dream blue,” he wrote on Twitter.

First of all, it’s great to see Mount getting recognition from supporters inside the Bridge. The academy graduate was amazing throughout the 2020/21 campaign and a driving force at so many different stages.

 

Secondly, the best is yet to come from him.

The England international’s game continues to evolve under Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel as he’s becoming more advanced up the pitch. 

He’s got a superb footballing brain to connect play in the final third, but just needs to up his goal output numbers to really elevate himself into the next category of player. It’s going to be intriguing to see how a combination with new centre-forward Romelu Lukaku builds during this season.

It’s some achievement, though, that he could retire today if he wanted a Champions League winner with his boyhood club.
