Blues Caretaker Manager Frank Lampard Speaks On Mason Mount Future At Chelsea

New Chelsea caretaker manager Frank Lampard has revealed his plans for midfielder Mason Mount amid transfer interest from Liverpool.

Lampard, who was appointed as the Blues’ interim boss until the end of the season, has confirmed that Mount will have a key role to play in his plans.

Mount, who Lampard managed while on loan at Derby, saw little game time in the final weeks of Graham Potter’s reign.

The 24-year-old was forced to withdraw from the latest England squad through injury and was making his way back to full fitness when Potter was sacked by the club.

Lampard will be hoping to guide Chelsea to Champions League glory and his decision to keep Mount at the club could be seen as a sign of his commitment to developing young talent.

With Liverpool reportedly interested in the midfielder, it remains to be seen whether Chelsea will be able to hold on to him in the long term.

However, for now at least, it seems that Mount will be a key part of Lampard’s plans for the club.

Lampard explained (via Sky Sports): “Mason has always been a fantastic player for me at Derby and Chelsea.

“I know he’s had a few slight injury problems. I need to speak to him and find out where he’s at but I know what I get from Mason. He’s a huge player for Chelsea.

“Modern-day football has big squads and I understand Chelsea might be at the top end. I remember being here before and having that.

“Maybe in the short-term, that’s a positive thing for me because everyone can have a clean slate.”

Lampard’s comments could prove to be a huge blow to Liverpool and manager Jurgen Klopp, with the Anfield club heavily linked with a move for the midfielder this summer.

Mount recently appointed a new agent, further fuelling rumours that he could be leaving the club this summer.

But if Lampard sees him as a key part of Chelsea’s plans moving forward – and keeps the job beyond this season – the 24-year-old could be convinced to commit his long-term future to Stamford Bridge.
