Chris Sutton claims that Mount has behaved similarly to a number of other well-known newcomers to Old Trafford in recent years. After spending £55 million to join United from Chelsea last summer, the midfielder’s stay at Old Trafford may have increased the deal to as much as £60 million. The England star believed a transfer to the north-west could revitalize his career because he was a shadow of his previous self during his final year at Stamford Bridge

Mount entered the game at halftime of Sunday’s Manchester derby, but he was largely in the background as City won 3-0 to demonstrate their superiority. Furthermore, Sutton feels that since moving to the Theatre of Dreams, Mount has completely lost his direction. According to Sutton, Mason Mount appears to have fallen into the largest black hole ever observed by humans, as reported by the Daily Mail.
Gary Neville called Ten Hag’s decision to substitute Mount for Sofyan Amrabat in the derby “reckless,” but the Dutchman defended his strategy and insisted he had no regrets. “You can’t say that,” Ten Hag said. “We had to create because we are losing the game. You can wait, clear, but when you have Mason Mount on the bench you can expect creativity.”
