Chelsea manager Graham Potter has said that Mason Mount’s contract stand-off with the Blues board is a matter to be dealt with between player and club.
As we reported recently Mount and Chelsea have put contract talks on hold and a host of the Blues are hopeful of luring the 24-year-old away from Stamford Bridge this summer.
Mount has come in for criticism from some sections of the Blues fanbase this season, with Chelsea currently going through a woeful run of form that sees them sit in 10th place in the Premier League table.
However, Potter has insisted that Mount has been good to work with and that the England international – like everyone at the club – is ‘suffering’ due to the club’s dreadful run of results.
“Mason for us has been great – he’s top to work with,” Potter told his pre-match press conference ahead of his side’s home clash with Leeds tomorrow.
”He is suffering like rest of us and wants to do better, have better results.
“His contract is between him and the club.”
Potter went on to say that his focus is obviously not just on Mount but on all of his squad as he looks to turn things around and get Chelsea out of the rut they currently find themselves in.
“My job is to help players improve and we’re not doing that as well as we would like.
“I’m not thinking about the summer, just tomorrow’s match, preparing the team, helping the team to better results and performances and responding to bad moments that we’re in.”
