After having an incredible debut season with Chelsea, Mason Mount has been appointed as one of the Next Ambassadors for FIFA alongside other emerging football talents such as Phil Foden, Steven Bergwijn, Theo Hernadez, Aaron Connolly and Manchester City Women’s Georgia Stanway.
The 21-year old who is already rated at 79 on FIFA 20 has made 52 appearances for his boyhood club in all competitions in his debut season, a Chelsea record for an Academy graduate in their debut campaign. In fact, that figure could rise if he features in the Champions League for Chelsea against Bayern Munich.
The FIFA Next ambassadors simply known as the FIFA Next is a curated list featuring the freshest emerging talent from across the world of football who embody the meaning of Win as One.
The appointment of the FIFA Next follows the appointment of France and Paris Saint Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe as the cover star of the FIFA 21 franchise as well as the appointment of Erling Haaland of Borussia Dortmund, Trent Alexander-Arnold of Liverpool and Joao Felix of Atletico Madrid as the new FIFA Ambassadors.
In recognition of the achievement, the official YouTube channel of Chelsea Football Club shared a video of the best five goals scored by Mason Mount in his breakthrough season and you can enjoy the video below.
