Mason Mount is a humble lad, despite his ever growing profile and success.
Today he was in an England press conference, being asked about his Ballon d’Or nomination. That sentence alone would have been hard to believe not long ago, let alone the reality of Mount being considered among the very best in the world.
The reason he’s at the top is evident in the way he responds to all this hype – with humility. He’s never going to stop working to be the very best – he’s already almost there.
