Chelsea legend Zola: These 2 England youngsters in same bracket as Pedri

Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola has placed Mason Mount in the same class as Barcelona superkid Pedri.

Zola also singled out Spain starlet Pedri for a bright future while speaking to Marca.

The Spanish sports newspaper asked the retired 35-cap Italy hero which player has "surprised" him most in the last two years.

Zola, 56, replied: "There are players who have come on very strong.

"I'm impressed with Chelsea's Mason Mount and how he's grown, and I also love Phil Foden.

"And of the Spaniards, Pedri is one of them, apart from many others."
