Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri: 'Callum Hudson-Odoi is being used in right way'

Sarri: 'Hudson-Odoi is being used correctly'

Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri claims that youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi is being 'used in the right way', despite calls for the 18-year-old to receive more starts.

Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri has continued to defend the game-time given to Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The 18-year-old has been left frustrated with the amount of chances given to him by Sarri, and the academy graduate had been keen to secure a move to Bayern Munich during the January transfer window.

Hudson-Odoi impressed yet again as Chelsea beat Malmo in the Europa League on Thursday night, but Sarri has suggested that he has no immediate plans to make the teenager a first-team regular.

The 60-year-old is quoted by Sky Sports News as saying: "You need to understand in the same position we have Pedro, Willian, and [Eden] Hazard. It's not easy for a young player to play with the same consistency as his teammates.

"We are using him in the right way at the moment, of course the 20 matches this season will become 30 in the next, 40 in two years, and I think also the club has to decide because if I'm the club and I want Callum on the pitch with consistency, I have to sell another winger. Otherwise the manager is in trouble."

Hudson-Odoi has made six starts and seven substitute appearances in all competitions this season, although only 74 minutes have come in the Premier League.
