IF CHELSEA don’t wish to play Callum Hudson-Odoi, why did not they promote him final month?
German giants Bayern Munich have been ready to interrupt their switch report to signal the promising ahead.
Hudson-Odoi, 18, may have turn into the most recent England prospect to realize expertise in Germany and the Blues would make a wholesome revenue.
As a substitute, the starlet began on the bench towards minnows Malmo, with Willian and Pedro getting the nod as an alternative.
Eden Hazard may have put his ft up tonight however was introduced on with 20 minutes left as Hudson-Odoi got here on with six to play.
Because the window shut, the wantaway ace has performed a whopping 19 minutes of first-team soccer – 13 of these when his facet have been already beating Huddersfield Four-Zero.
He was dropped from the squad altogether as his extra skilled team-mates have been smashed 6-Zero by Manchester Metropolis, so it isn’t a wealth of higher choices retaining him out of the squad.
Absolutely, tonight was the prospect for Maurizio Sarri to provide the teenager some recreation time, in any case he scored on his final begin towards Sheffield Wednesday.
Chelsea appear to be punishing Hudson-Odoi for wanting to affix Bayern, who admittedly crossed a line of their public pursuit.
However can they blame him? The academy graduate spent 10 years of their youth crew and impressed Sarri sufficient to earn a first-team shot this season.
However since then he has managed 476 minutes – or simply over 5 full matches – with solely 74 of these coming within the Premier League.
In that point, Jadon Sancho has continued to shine at Dortmund, Reiss Nelson is profiting from his alternative at Hoffenheim and Wales starlet Rabbi Matondo has Schalke tweeting in Welsh.
Chelsea have made a fortune growing after which promoting younger expertise and it appears pointless to disclaim Hudson-Odoi a transfer whereas refusing to provide him a shot.
Sure, Pedro and Willian supplied assists tonight however did we be taught something concerning the duo we did not know already?
And let’s be sincere, Chelsea have been by no means prone to lose over two legs to Malmo, whose final aggressive recreation got here in December.
