WHAT HAPPENED? The comments came at the end of a behind-the-scenes video of Mount touring his new home stadium. As the midfielder and his father took in the famous home dressing room at Old Trafford, it was revealed that the pair had visited the Theatre of Dreams when Mount was young.

WHAT THEY SAID: Posing for photos, Mount's father Tony said: "Home, mate. Home. Who'd have thought it, eh, when I brought you up here as a little boy."

"I know, special, ain't it?" Mason replied. Skip to 12:45 mark in the video below to see.
