Champions League final: Rio Ferdinand, Fabregas hail Mount
Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, and ex-Barcelona midfielder, Cesc Fabregas, were full of praise for Chelsea’s Mason Mount after his assist set up Kai Havertz to score the winner in the Champions League final.
Havertz rounded Ederson to score in the 42nd minute against Manchester City in Porto on Saturday.
Ferdinand said on BT Sport: “The way that Mason Mount turns on this ball, faces the game and just sees it.
“It’s a good run from Havertz, the ball from Mason Mount is absolutely on the money, but it’s lazy defending from Zinchenko.”
Former Blues playmaker Fabregas tweeted: “What a ball!! Mason Mount that’s what I’m talking about!”
This is the second time Chelsea are winning Europe’s biggest prize, after they lifted it in 2012.
