Mason Mount admits it was difficult for him to face Thiago Alcantara

Chelsea star Mason Mount has explained that it was hard for him facing Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara in the Champions League which the German team won.

Bayern Munich sent Chelsea out of the 2019/20 Champions League winning 7-1 on aggregate as they defeated the Blues in the two knock out games. The German champions went on to win the Champions League beating Paris-Saint-Germain in the final of the competition. Defeat against Bayern Munich was a painful one for all Chelsea fans considering the number of goals the German team scored against the Blues.

Mason Mount who played against Bayern Munich has now explained that the German team were so superb claiming that some of their players were so hard to face.

Bayern have some unbelievable world-class players like Robert Lewandowski, Joshua Kimmich and Thiago in midfield, I just couldn’t get near him.

They moved the ball around the team so quickly. When you’re up against players like that you’re thinking; How are we going to stop this?.

It was a tough lesson, but we’ve taken so much from that experience and we’ll come back stronger,” the 21-year-old told Sport Bible.

Meanwhile, Mason Mount and his Chelsea teammates finished among the top four at the just concluded Premier League season which means they will play in the Champions League next term.
