Former Manchester United striker, Louis Saha has lashed out at Mason Mount for lacking the courage and willingness to get the ball and make a difference.
Recall that Mount joined Man United from Chelsea in the summer for £60 million.
But the England international has struggled to deliver on the price tag so far this season.
However, in a chat with BettingOdds, Saha said that Mount take more responsibility if he must succeed at Old Trafford.
“I have seen moments this season where Mason Mount is not even asking for the ball,” Saha told BettingOdds.

“It’ is very shocking for me to see a player with that type of quality shying away from taking responsibility.
“He is too good of a player to play like this, to not show a willingness to get the ball and make a difference, and it is not on.
“He has so much quality, but at the moment he doesn’t seem to have any faith in himself. He needs to show courage and commitment and I am really unimpressed with Mason Mount at the moment.”
On 8 August 2013, his 35th birthday, Saha announced his retirement from professional football via Twitter. Saha joined other retired players at a Testimonial match for his former Spurs teammate Ledley King on 12 May 2014.
Coming on as a second-half substitute he scored a hat-trick against a line-up of current Tottenham players. Three years later on 2 September 2017, he once again joined other retired players for a charity match against Barcelona that Manchester United won 3–0.

In December 2015, Saha said he would be suing a UK bank after it was revealed that a botched investment scheme resulted in him losing “around six figures.” He also published his first book titled ‘Thinking Inside the Box?’.
