Chelsea legend John Terry claims “there’s another side to the story” in defence of Manchester United star Mason Mount, hinting possible return to Stamford Bridge

Mason Mount has been the subject of much hate and criticism since he left Chelsea for Manchester United. Chelsea fans are disappointed that a Cobham-bred, once contemplated to become a club legend, eventually would ‘ditch’ the club for a fierce rival.

However, Chelsea legend John Terry has hinted at the existence of “another side to the story” in defense of the 24-year-old Englishman, which suggests that there may be more to Mount’s departure from Chelsea than meets the eye.

John Terry defends Mason Mount

On his move to Manchester United, Mason Mount, at the age of 24, has been providing Manchester United’s midfield with the increased depth and versatility that they need while also bringing his skill in delivering set-pieces. However, he’s been struggling to adapt to his new environment.

Mount was a home-grown Chelsea player straight out of Cobham, hence Chelsea fans felt let down and disappointed following his exit. They felt the move away from Chelsea to a direct rival, Manchester United, was borne out of disrespect for the club.

Mason Mount’s farewell message stirred up some attention among Chelsea fans, primarily because of his hairstyle in the video, which seemed to indicate that the message was recorded several weeks prior to its release.

Speaking on Friday about the hate Mase has endured recently, club legend John Terry noted that Mason Mount is a ‘proper Chels’ to dissipate all resentment towards the player. According to reliable sports journalist Fabrizio Romano, Terry said: “Mase is proper Chels through and though. There always two sides to a story, I know the other side to it.”

Despite the bitterness and disappointment from Chelsea fans over Mason Mount’s shocking departure, there was no trace of bitterness from Mason Mount’s current and former Chelsea teammates, including club legend John Terry.

Terry left a message on his Instagram post with three blue hearts, symbolizing his support and well-wishes for Mount. Tammy Abraham also extended his best wishes to Mount, while Callum Hudson-Odoi expressed his sadness at his departure, reflecting the strong camaraderie within the Chelsea squad.

The former Chelsea captain has sparked controversy with his recent comments on Mount, which indicate Mount’s potential return to Stamford Bridge in the future. He said (via Simon Philips): “I’m not going to air that now but there’s another side to the story. Let’s not be too harsh on Mason when he comes back.”
