It hasn’t been long since Mason Mount signed his five-year contract with the Red Devils, but he has already faced issues.
The midfielder is now facing up to six weeks out due to injury, and it is leaving the club’s fate this season hanging in the air.
And now a former Chelsea player has an opinion about Mount’s overall time at Manchester United, which isn’t a positive one.
Emmanuel Petit has made it clear he believes Mason Mount will struggle at Manchester United.
According to Tribal Football, he recently told BettingSites.co.uk:
“I was very frustrated Mason Mount asked to leave Chelsea. We could feel his frustration for months last season. He was injured for a while and he didn’t play too many games towards the end.
“His contract issues had been really poorly managed by the club. I think he is suffering from last season right now and the fact that he signed for Manchester United means he is under huge pressure. He has been struggling in midfield and Casemiro, Bruno Fernandes and Mason Mount is not working at all at the moment.
“Maybe it will work in the future but at the moment it’s not working at all. With all the money that Chelsea have spent in the last eighteen months they are not able to give a proper respectful contract to one of their homegrown English players?”
And while it seems to be more of a dig at the way Chelsea is handling its players, Petit still doesn’t seem to think Man United and Mount will work out.
We will just have to sit back and wait for the player to recover from his injury, and see if he can prove Petit wrong.
