Mason Mount wants to honour the captain’s armband someday.
The Chelsea academy graduate has been a mainstay at the club for the past three seasons and has very well progressed as one of the finest players of this generation.
He has been previously given the armband in sporadic cup appearances.
But with Cesar Azpilicueta’s imminent transfer to Barcelona, the captaincy role maybe up for grabs.
Mount said: “I’m naturally not the most vocal. I’ve never really been that. When I was captain of the Under-18 FA Youth Cup side, I was always someone who tried to lead by example on the pitch.
“But you have to bring that as well and that’s something I am constantly trying to learn from the likes of Azpi and Jorgi, who have been captains of this club. Just trying to learn off them and trying to add that to my game. Even if you are not someone who leads with the ball and leads on the pitch you have to have that other side as well.
“I am still young and I am still learning, but whenever the opportunity comes to step up I want to take it. Obviously, the gaffer trusted me with captaining the side in the second half and I take that responsibility.”
