Mason Mount has revealed that players can hear what experts say during behind-closed-door matches, and that he once recorded Joe Cole and Rio Ferdinand cheering for a nutmeg.
Blues midfielder Mount’s comments came in a light-hearted interview with former Chelsea winger Cole ahead of their Champions League final against Manchester City in Porto on Saturday.
Cole was working as an expert alongside Manchester United icon Ferdinand when the duo was audibly celebrating a brutal move by Kai Havertz, which was picked up by Mount.

In the BT Sport video, Cole said: “ It’s been cleaned up in such a way that there are no fans in the crowd, so when me and Rio (Ferdinand) sit there and watch the game, we get a little exaggerated sometimes.
Mount replied, ‘We can hear you! We can hear you screaming, yes, ‘before Cole replied,’ Mate, if someone goes (crazy) you will hear from me, the parties are there – brilliant. ‘
The 22-year-old then revealed, ‘I think Kai (Havertz) played a (crazy) meg in the game – I don’t know if it was you or Rio, but I heard one of you’ oooh! “You can’t help but get involved, can you? ‘

Mount scored in the 2-0 Champions League semi-final, the club’s second leg victory against Real Madrid and in the quarter-final against Porto, and will most likely start the final.
His urgent understanding and dynamism will almost certainly be part of manager Thomas Tuchel’s grand plan to beat Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City and claim glory in the European showpiece this weekend.
The England star, who has 16 caps for Gareth Southgate’s side, is also essentially a nailed starter for his country at the upcoming European championships when fully fit.
