Mount leaving Chelsea is considered a great loss for the blue shirt team. The 24-year-old has signed a five-year contract with the new club. Butt, a member of Generation 92, praised the deal.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, Butt praised Erik ten Hag’s new midfielder: “I think he’s a very good player. As a manager you want to put as many good players on your team as possible. Good.”
Butt thinks Mount’s versatility will be a positive for United: “They train throughout the season for a position where they can play. It can be number 10, it can be left or right. But good players are always in the team.”
“He’s a very good player, I’ve watched him closely a few times. He’s a very talented boy, British and young, and he seems like a nice guy too. I think it’s a good signing for Manchester United.”
