I trust Hudson-Odoi - Maurizio Sarri

Published on: 15 March 2019

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri says he is convinced about the abilities on Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The Ghanian youngster was subject to transfer discussion after he handed transfer request due to lack of playing time at Chelsea.

However, after his impressive heroics against Dynamo Kiev in the Europa League, the Italian tactician says he has never doubted the abilities in the 18-year-old winger.

"I have a lot of players of course. I know very well for you Hudson-Odoi is the best, for me, I want to see all of them at the same level. Hudson-Odoi is doing very well in the last period, he will be in the list of 18 for sure, maybe on the pitch, I don't know at this moment.

"I want to send to my team the message the match is very important. I don't want to make a mistake in this. In the last match Hudson-Odoi was the first change so you know very well he is in mind for every match."

Chelsea will play Slavia Prague in the quarterfinals of the Europa League.
