MASON MOUNT’S dad has slammed reports claiming his son is annoyed by the arrival of Kai Havertz as “bulls***”.
The German playmaker joined Chelsea for a cut-price £70million from Bayer Leverkusen on Friday.
Big things are expected of the 21-year-old, who was personally brought in by Blues owner Roman Abramovich.
There has been much talk over where Havertz will slot in at Stamford Bridge, whether it will be behind Timo Werner or on the wings.
And Bild journalist Christian Falk claimed on Twitter that Havertz will be competing with Mount for a starting spot – much to the frustration of the England international.
He said: “Havertz is already searching for a house in London.
“Because of Havertz his mate Timo Werner can imagine to play at the wings.
“Mason Mount is not happy that he has a expensive rival at his position.”
But his comments were laughed off by Mount’s dad Tony, who replied to the tweet by posting a number of laughing face emojis.
He even labelled the suggestion by Falk as “bull” alongside a poo emoji, indicating the ex-Derby loanee will still have a vital role under Frank Lampard.
Mount has enjoyed two seasons under the tutelage of Lampard – first on loan at Pride Park – before impressing in West London during the 2019-20 campaign.
The 21-year-old featured in an incredible 53 games last term – chipping in with eight goals and six assists.
