As time went by, Mason Mount played deeper and deeper for Frank Lampard. In part to fit more attacking talent in the front of his team, the former Blues manager moved Mount back into midfield.
One of the early moves Thomas Tuchel made was getting Mount back into attacking positions behind the striker, and in an exclusive interview with BT Sport Mount explained that “he’s seen me as a 10” through these early weeks in charge.
It’s a really nice interview with Joe Cole, and you can see it here.
You can see the midfielder speaking in the clip embedded here:
"It always means a little bit more to me, being a Pompey boy. My first ever game I went to was at Fratton Park."
