Report: 'Fantastic' Chelsea player has been really enthused after one-on-one meeting with Graham Potter recently
Chelsea’s Mason Mount has reportedly been really enthused by his one-on-one meeting with Graham Potter.
Potter, who took charge as the Chelsea head coach last month, is really growing into his role at Stamford Bridge.
The Englishman has four wins and one draw from his opening five games, which includes back-to-back victories over AC Milan in the Champions League group stages.
It definitely feels like he’s getting a tune out of several players in the early weeks of his reign, something which was evident in last night’s 2-0 away victory at the San Siro against Milan.
Mount one-on-one with Potter
According to The Telegraph, Potter sat down for one-on-one talks recently with every player in the Chelsea squad for discussions.
The report says that Mount found the heart-to-heart “particularly instructive and helpful”.
If you assess how Mount has performed so far under Potter, you would guess that the duo have hit it off straight away.
The 23-year-old has started and impressed in the last five games, thriving as an attacking midfielder right now that is heavily involved in creating chances.
He won a penalty for the Blues and assisted a goal in the victory against Milan last night, so the England international must feel like he’s rediscovering his golden touch after an underwhelming start to the season.
Incidentally, Potter described Mount as “fantastic” after the victory over Milan.
Potter arrived at Stamford Bridge with a reputation of someone with great skills when it comes to man management, so it’s very exciting to see what he can get out of this group.
Of course, Chelsea’s new man is coaching and working with players on a day-to-day basis that are at a higher level than his previous teams.
His style and philosophy will come together on the pitch much easier if the squad fully buy into his ideas, though.
