“I can’t put it into words. It’s impossible,” Mount told BT Sport. “I just mentioned then that I’ve played in two finals for Chelsea and we lost them both.
“The way that hurt … It’s all I’ve dreamt of winning a trophy with Chelsea. To go all the way in the Champions League. We played some tough teams. We are in the final and we won it. It’s such a special occasion.
“At this moment in time, we’re the best team in the world. You can’t take that away from us! “What a team Man City are. You have seen what they did in the Premier League. It was such a tough game. We got a goal and defended the whole game. We left everything on the line and we won. What can I say? Loads of staff that have come through.
“It is unbelievable. My dad has just come down from the stands. I burst into tears seeing him. I thank my family for everything.”
Mount had an outstanding second season for his boyhood club. The youngster played 54 matches for Chelsea in the concluded season in which he scored nine goals and provided as many assists.
Mount was delighted with the team’s performance as Chelsea were the better team on the particular day. The Blues were right on the money with their counter attacks in the first half and then solidified their defense in the second half after taking the lead.
