“Mount left his derby teammates stunned “

Derby County Goalkeeping Coach Shay Given has revealed how Mason Mount stunned his new teammates after his arrival at the Club in the 2018/2019 season.

Mason Mount starred for the rams scoring 11 goals and 6 assists before returning to to Chelsea to play a pivotal role this season.

Given told Media Outlet Goal about how Mount left his derby teammates in awe:

"The first training with us left the players thinking: 'Wow, who is this guy?!'"  "We knew about him as a young prospect at Chelsea who had done well in Holland [on loan at Vitesse], but it is not until he is actually on the training ground that you really see what kind of player he is.

"He was some player for us. His finishing, power, pace and work rate was great. He is just desperate to be the best he can be. Of course, he has played so many games this season for Chelsea and he was one of our best players at Derby.

"Even at Derby, they thought what a player he is going to be from the first training session and he went on from there."
