Chelsea Star Mason Mount Mentions A Man United Player As His Role Model (Watch Interview).

After being given a chance by former boss Frank Lampard, Mason Mount has grown into one of the first names on the team sheet at Chelsea in recent years. 

Every player in football has a hero, and Mount has named a Manchester United player as one of his heroes, and how he has had a huge impact on his development as a player in the academy, influencing one particular area of his game.

"Everyone has seen the video of me basing my free kick on him when I was younger." When he [Ronaldo] was a young boy at United, I used to keep a careful eye on him. Mount told Amazon Video Sport. 

"I enjoyed the way he played, his free kicks."

Mount was seen scoring a free-kick when he was younger, and he stated that his free-kicks are inspired by the Portuguese superstar Ronaldo.

"I'm a massive Portmouth fan, so I went to the game when they played at Old Trafford and he scored that free-kick against David James. I was actually at the game, in the corner so I saw it first hand and I think after that I kind of fell in love with the technique and what he'd done and him as a player.

"So I try to think about it and figure out how I can include it into my game. It's a long journey from watching someone from the stands to being on the same pitch as them and playing against them, and and it's one of the reasons I love football so much," Mount added.

When comparing Mount to Ronaldo, there aren't many similarities in terms of positioning, physicality, or style, but you can readily draw parallels based on Mount's enthusiasm and desire to improve.

Mount, like Ronaldo, has outstanding ball-striking technique, and there aren't many better players to look up to when trying to model your footballing talent after.
