“They are an example of how good young players can be and how good young players from England can be,” said Tuchel.
“They are the outstanding examples at the moment. I cannot speak for Phil Foden because he is not my player.
“But you see clearly the talent and desire, and the ability to decide any game on any level.
“So he is a huge player and he gives me the impression he is the same nice guy and the same clear character like Mason.
“About Mason, I have spoken now many times. He is outstanding and he has the full package in terms of mentality, of being humble, of work ethic and, of course, talent.
“So the national team can be very, very happy to arrive with these kind of players because they are absolutely reliable on the highest level.
“Most importantly, they are hungry and humble. They behave exactly how you want the players to behave. They want to learn, they want to be better and it’s seems like they don’t feel the pressure – which is pretty amazing.
“But, before they arrive at they European Championships, they both want to have success with their teams, which means they will place against each other in the [UCL] final.”
On 29th May, Chelsea will play against Manchester City in UCL final. Mason Mount and Phil Foden will be against each other.
