Vitesse coach Fraser declares Mount 'beautiful footballer'; Chelsea kid loving Eredivisie chance

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is buzzing after his goal for Vitesse on the weekend.

Mount scored in defeat to PSV Eindhoven on the weekend.

The midfielder is being played further forward by Vitesse coach Henk Fraser, who is delighted with Mount's attitude.

"I do not want to say too much, because the expectation will be too high, but Mason is a beautiful football player, I see it daily," said Fraser.

Mount was proud of his goal last weekend.

"Do they call it a Bergkamp goal in the Netherlands? That's a huge compliment. Bergkamp is a legend, but he chose Arsenal, Chelsea is really much better," said the midfielder with a wink.

"I've scored twice as a striker with my first ball contact. That's top, of course, but I should not get carried away."

For the moment, Mount is playing as a super-sub, but says he wants more.

"I'll always say that, but I'm a professional. I do not want to question anything about my behavior. I always wanted to play football I'm really a blessed person, my hobby is my job. End of."
