Ex-Chelsea player Cesc Fabregas was impressed by the crucial assist by Mason Mount towards Kai Havertz against Manchester City. The latter scored the only goal in the final as the Blues won their second ever Champions League.
Fabregas was praising Mount for that decisive through ball which was left undetected by the opponent’s defense. Consequently, Havertz deservedly scored his first-ever CL goal. Thus, the youngster becomes the first Englishman to assist after Wes Brown assisted Cristiano Ronaldo in the 2008 UEFA Champions League final.
Thomas Tuchel’s wait for Europe’s elite title has ended. Whereas Pep Guardiola would be looking to regroup and fight for the title next season.
‘Untouchable’ Mount was brilliant as per Fabregas
Mason Mount joined the London club along with coach Frank Lampard from Derby County during the 2019-20 season. He was one of the regulars under Lampard. Thomas Tuchel replaced him after a string of disappointing results in the current season.
However, the 22-year-old midfielder was equally brilliant under the new coach. He helped them seal a 2-0 win for the Blues against Real Madrid in the semis. Additionally, he was excellent in terms of creating chances, more (3) as compared to the whole Manchester City side (2).
The title-winning goal by Havertz was scored in the 42nd minute after a disorganized defense failed to stop a brilliant through ball from Mount. The opponent goalkeeper stumbled and finally, Chelsea got the decisive lead. Cesc Fabregas instantly tweeted and couldn’t stop praising the Englishman’s pass.
Some of the big-money clubs approached Mount but as per Fabrizio Romano, he is still an “untouchable”. He has still three years left on his contract and Tuchel would not like to let him leave.
