Former Chelsea star Frank Sinclair has backed Mason Mason to reach the heights of his manager Frank Lampard.

The Chelsea legend/manager is the clubs current all-time top goal scorer but Sinclair believes that 21-year-old star Mason Mount has what it takes to be as good as his manager.

“I understand the comparisons between Mason Mount and Frank Lampard,” he told Gentingbet.

“They’re both attacking midfielders that score goals. Similar to Frank, Mason Mount has that ability to arrive in the box at the right time to score goals which he has shown this season. Whether he can do that at the rate that Frank Lampard did that for Chelsea remains to be seen.

“It is a big ask, but he has the talent. There is going to be a lot of competition in that area of the pitch, especially with Chelsea able to go back into the transfer market in the summer but I certainly see him as a player who will get better and better.

“The fans have been divided by Mason Mount this season about the way he is received at the football club, which I don’t quite understand.

“Chelsea have always been known as a club that encourages young talent, even from the early ’70s when Ray Wilkins was the young Chelsea player coming through the academy and going on to captain the club – there has always been support for the youngsters and I don’t understand why Mason Mount doesn’t always receive that from Chelsea supporters.

“But, he is showing the strength of mind to get through it, focus on his game and still produce performances week in, week out. So, Mason Mount will go on to have a bright future at the club, whether he can score as many goals as Frank Lampard, I don’t know, but if he is anywhere near Frank Lampard, then he is going to be a Chelsea great.”

Mason Mount has been one of Chelsea's standout players this season, scoring 6 goals and 4 assists in the Premier League.
