Chelsea Youngest Star Makes It In The Ballon d 'Or 2021 List

France Football has announced this year's Ballon d'Or 30 man shortlist and it compiles the best footballers of 2021. The Ballon d'Or has been one of the most sought after means to adjudge the best footballer in the world. Started in 1956, the award was determined via a voting method. Voting was done solely by football journalists until 2006. Since 2007, the coaches and captains of national teams were given the right to vote as well.

Mason Mount was a crucial part of Chelsea and England that dominated Europe on the basis of their youth squad. Having appeared for the Chelsea U18 team at the age of 15 and the U21 team at 17, Mount earned a senior call up by the time he was 20.

The Portsmouth born midfielder displayed early signs of maturity and cited Frank Lampard, Luka Modric and Andres Iniesta as his inspirations. Chelsea's player of the year 2020/21, Mount, is a regular starter and is one of Thomas Tuchel's favorites.

Mason Mount also helped England reach the final of the EURO 2020. His heroics throughout the tournament earned him a spot in the EURO 2020 Team of the Year.
