Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi has revealed that he is taking tips from Manchester City attacker Raheem Sterling to improve his performances. The 18-year-old recently signed a new long-term contract at the Stamford Bridge, quashing the speculation surrounding his exit.
Hudson-Odoi has been one of the best performers for Chelsea this season. And, the Englishman has attributed his successful development to the Manchester City star.
Sterling himself has become the best winger under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, having scored 35 league goals in the last two seasons for the Citizens. He already has six goals in the top-tier this season.
“[Sterling] obviously plays for a different team, so he doesn’t have to do that, but he does because he wants everyone to do well,” Hudson-Odoi said.
“For a person like that to help you, it’s an amazing feeling. He gives you the best advice possible.”
“I ask him, ‘How do you get all the goals you are getting, how do you work for the team, how do you make an impact in big games?'”
“[He] tells me to keep working hard, tells me how to get the goals, how to get the assists.”
“He’ll tell me what are the best movements to get in the box when the balls are coming in, what is the best position to pick up possession.”
“It’s everything you need to know in the modern game and how you should be playing.”
“I’d say he is one of the best wingers in the world right now. When I watch him play it’s an amazing feeling because he likes to help and contribute to the team as much as possible.”
Hudson-Odoi will next be seen in action when Chelsea face Newcastle following the international break.
