Mason Mount Tipped To Win The Ballon d'Or In The Near Future

Mason Mount has been tipped to win the Ballon d'Or in the near future by Shaun Wright-Phillips​, who believes the Chelsea star is carrying his side. 

​The 23-year-old enjoyed his best campaign to date last season, scoring 11 goals and grabbing 10 assists in the Premier League. 

For the second year running, he won Chelsea's Player of the Year award as voted by fans.

And it's not just fans recognising the England international's brilliance, with former Manchester City star Wright-Phillips​ showering him with glowing praise. 

The 40-year-old believes Mount is 'carrying Chelsea' and helped them to a top four finish in the league last season. 

"​If Chelsea were to win trophies and Mason Mount is the stand-out player, there is no reason why he couldn’t win the Ballon D’Or one day," he told Genting Casino.

"Mount is still a young player and is still learning to be consistent.

"He's played so well and is carrying Chelsea on his shoulders and helped them get into the Champions League. People need to remember how young he is and that he's still got a lot to learn."

Wright-Phillips​ added: "You look at when he came back to Chelsea from his loan spell, he played well when they were under a transfer ban, the season after that, Frank Lampard got sacked, Thomas Tuchel came in and he still played well. It's normal that he has a dip in form.

"I hope Mason stays a one-club man at Chelsea and as long as they start to win trophies again, there will be no reason why he won't stay for his whole career."

Mount has become one of Chelsea's key players since breaking into the first team. 

He starred during Frank Lampard's reign and has continued his fine form under Thomas Tuchel.
