Messi sees Mount as the future of football.

Mason Mount has been sensational Chelsea this season - with the midfielder's latest winner against Liverpool making him the highest scorer under Thomas Tuchel.

Here are some of the best quotes from coaches, pundits and fellow footballers on the Englishman:

Thomas Tuchel:

"I don’t want to put a limit to his development. He has a lot of potential. Besides being a great footballer, he is a super-nice guy. He is eager to learn, hungry to win, open-minded," Tuchel said soon after joining the club.

Jurgen Klopp:

"The individual quality of Mason Mount in that moment made the difference," Jurgen Klopp told Sky Sports after his Liverpool side were beaten by Chelsea.

Oscar:

"I like him. Sometimes he doesn’t play like me but sometimes, I watch him and I can see a little bit of me there.

"He has everything you need to improve. He scores goals, he does some important things and he knows how to defend and attack. I really like him," Oscar told TalkSport recently.

Frank Lampard:

"You need people who are prepared to release a lot of energy and speed high up the pitch to win the ball back. You also need quality on the ball and Mason has that. So in terms of relying on him last year, that is just the way the season panned out," the former manager said in October.

Ashley Cole:

Cole said recently: "For me, the best player for Chelsea and the first name on the team sheet. Next season he's definitely pushing for the captaincy."

Leo Messi:

The Argentinian added Mount to a 'youth on the rise' card and it includes a comment from the Argentine magician, who says: "Having watched him play he has the potential to be one of the best."

Joe Cole:

"He’s got that little bit of magic, and he was a threat. Even when there was nothing in the game he was looking to probe. The reason why footballers love him so much is because he does everything right," Cole said on BT Sport last week.

John Terry:

"Mason Mount is 100 per cent future Chelsea captain," John Terry said during his Instagram Live session.

"He's been the best player at Chelsea this season, to be honest. He's a great lad, trains unbelievably well, is Chelsea through and through and shows leadership qualities. In my mind, he'll be Chelsea and England captain."

Paul Scholes:

"Mason Mount could be a Frank Lampard, he’s got the ability to win games for Chelsea. In years to come, he will score a lot of goals like Frank," said the former Man United man a few months ago.
