Mason Mount Calls Out Toni Kroos Over 'Sleep' Comments In Post-Match Interview And He Nailed It

Mason Mount didn't forget about Toni Kroos' pre-match comments in a refreshingly honest post-match interview following Chelsea's Champions League semi-final win over Real Madrid.

The 22-year-old England international, who has been outstanding throughout the 2020/21 campaign, scored in a convincing 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge as Thomas Tuchel's side progressed to the final.

It was another quality performance from the Chelsea academy product and after the final whistle, he had a passionate chat with pundit Alex Scott, where he mentioned a certain comment from Los Blancos midfielder Kroos.

In the post-match interview with CBS Sports, Mount says: "I saw one of their players [Kroos] saying he doesn't lose sleep over any of our players. Maybe he should lose sleep over us as a team."

The context behind those comments come from earlier this week, when the German international was asked who he believes will be the most difficult player to face when they come up against Chelsea.

"The most difficult player to face at Chelsea? No player has ever taken my sleep in 15 years." Kroos said. "They play well as a team but I can't tell you a name."

Away from his comments about Kroos and a grounded Mount spoke from the heart in an emotional post-match interview.

"I can't put it into words, really, at the moment." the 22-year-old said. "But it was a great performance tonight, it was a tough, tough game. You know what they're like, they're going to come and they're going to give it everything.

"I thought we were brilliant, we worked hard. We probably should have had about five. I should have had one about 20 minutes before I scored.

"The most important thing is that we won tonight. But it's not over, there's one more game left."

He added: "We gave it everything. We had that desire, we wanted to win. You could see in the first-half we had a couple of opportunities where we won the ball back and could've countered and scored, but we didn't take them.

"But we got the one at the end so it doesn't matter."
