Mason Mount has reflected on the first time he ever set foot in Old Trafford when he saw THAT Cristiano Ronaldo free-kick against Portsmouth. He now wants to replicate it himself.
Mount will bring some much-needed attacking quality to United’s midfield, hopefully adding goals and assists which were honestly desperately needed across the 22/23 campaign.
He had his first interview in red yesterday following his announcement, where he spoke about his excitement to get going. He also revealed that he already has fond memories of Old Trafford, having visited before as a kid.
Mason Mount on THAT Cristiano Ronaldo free kick
“I was probably around 10, I was there in the away end, supporting my team Pompey and was able to witness that special moment.”
The goal was a really special one. It is widely regarded as one of the best free-kicks in the Premier League era, if not ever.
It would be great to see our new number seven follow in the footsteps of one from old.
He’s already had some practice…
Mount then went on to reflect on a classic video. This depicts him as a young lad taking a free-kick in a Chelsea academy training session.
“I think that video of me taking the free kick was after that day,” Mount told MUTV. “It inspired me and seeing that moment at Old Trafford, in the away end, I was in awe of that situation and that iconic moment. I’d love to now replicate it.”
He’s certainly had enough practice over the years… coming soon to Old Trafford? We hope so.
