Chelsea star Mason Mount has opened up on what it was like to play against Liverpool transfer target Thiago Alcantara. The Bayern Munich midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to Premier League side as he is entering the final year of his contract at Bayern.
Mount faced Thiago when Bayern Munich played against Chelsea in the Champions League round of 16. The Bundesliga side went on to win the competition for the 6th time.
"Bayern have some unbelievable world-class players... [Robert] Lewandowski, [Joshua] Kimmich and Thiago in midfield, I just couldn't get near him," he told Sport Bible.
"They moved the ball around the team so quickly. When you're up against players like that you're thinking, "How are we going to stop this?"
"It was a big moment, it opened my eyes. It made me realise, "This is the next level, this where you need to be". And I am determined to work hard and reach that level.
"It was a tough lesson, but we've taken so much from that experience and we'll come back stronger."
