Former Manchester United striker, Louis Saha has lashed out at Mason Mount for lacking the courage and amenability to get the ball and make a difference.
Recall that Mount joined Man United from Chelsea in the summer for £60 million.
But the England transnational has plodded to deliver on the price label so far this season.
Still, in a conversation with BettingOdds, Saha said that Mount will take further responsibility if he’s to succeed at Old Trafford.
“I’ve seen moments this season where Mason Mount isn’t indeed asking for the ball, ” Saha told BettingOdds.
“It’s veritably shocking for me to see a player with that type of quality flinching down from taking responsibility.
“He’s too good of a player to play like this, to not show an amenability to get the ball and make a difference, and it isn’t on.
“He has such an important quality, but at the moment he doesn’t feel to have any faith in himself. He needs to show courage and commitment and I’m really unimpressed with Mason Mount at the moment. ”
On 8 August 2013, his 35th birthday, Saha announced his withdrawal from professional football via Twitter. Saha joined other retired players at a Testimonial match for his former Spurs teammate Ledley King on 12 May 2014.
Coming on as an alternate- half cover he scored a chapeau- trick against a line- up of current Tottenham players. Three times later on 2 September 2017, he again joined other retired players for a charity match against Barcelona that Manchester United won 3 – 0.
