Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag has rated Mason Mount’s performance in his first game in Red Devils’ shirt.
Mount played for forty-five minutes for Erik ten Hag’s side in Wednesday’s pre-season victory over Leeds, being his first game for them after joining from Chelsea.
Ten Hag said he was pleased with what he saw from his new recruit.
The Red Devils named a relatively strong line-up for the first half of their friendly in Oslo, with Mount going close to opening the scoring with a chip.
Ten Hag shuffled his pack for the second half and a youthful side secured a 2-0 victory over Leeds thanks to goals from Noam Emeran and Joe Hugill.
Speaking to reporters after the game, ten Hag was asked to rate the £55million signing’s display, he replied, “Great. First time [in the team] but we could expect this.
“I think for him it’s just his first [step] because he has so much skills. I’m sure we will take so much joy from him and he will contribute to our performance absolutely.”
