'A new climate and new colleagues', says Mount after spending 45 mins on field with MU

Red Devils beat Leeds with a score of 2-0 in the preseason match

Mason Mount finally took to the field in Manchester United attire. This English midfielder was part of the team that beat Leeds United in a pre-season match, Wednesday (12/7/2023). Playing in Oslo, The Red Devils beat Leeds with a score of 2-0. This result is quite satisfactory considering the condition of the team that has not been maximized. Erik Ten Hag fielded more young players.

Mount started and spent 45 minutes on the pitch and he had several opportunities, including a chance to execute a free kick. Despite not scoring, 45 minutes on the pitch with the new team was a valuable opportunity for Mount. What did he say?

This time, Ten Hag lowered Mount in a different position. Unusually at Chelsea or in the England national team, Mount was asked to fill the role of the no.8 midfielder who fell further down the back. Mount was paired with two young MU midfielders, Kobbie Mainoo and Hannibal Mejbri. He is a key player for MU in building attacks. "I liked that role [no.8] today, being able to get back and pick up the ball and then start the attack a little bit deeper," Mount told MUTV. "But I also have the freedom to go forward and get into the box to try to help the team increase the pressure."

Mount certainly still needs time to adapt to a new team, a new climate, and new colleagues. He also hasn't played with the new MU core team who will join the pre-season this weekend. "I enjoy that position. I can help on the defensive side and the offensive side, can also start to initiate pressure, like when I get a chance," Mount continued. "I think this opportunity went very well. We had a tough week, but it feels good with 45 minutes to play," he said.
