Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi was arrested in May under the charges of rape, but these allegations have been cleared now.
He was arrested on May 17 due to a complaint by a woman who had called him to meet, but for some reason, the meeting had gone awry.
However, after a month of this incident, Hudson-Odoi’s name has been cleared against this charge, and the Metropolitan Police have stopped further investigation. The 19-year-old is definitely relieved about this. The police are confident that there is no reason to keep him in custody any longer.
He released a statement on social media talking about this incident and wants to serve a role model for Chelsea.
A statement posted on Twitter read: “At a time when there are bigger things happening in the world right now, you may also be aware of the serious allegations that were made against me.
“I have stayed silent and assisted the police fully throughout their enquiries, as I knew the day would soon come when my name would be cleared.
“Following a full and thorough investigation, the police have now confirmed they will take no further action.
“I would like to use this platform to thank everyone who has stood by my side and supported me during this difficult period.
“I have learned that being a footballer and playing for one of the best clubs in the world comes with great responsibility, and going forward I will try and use my platform as a Chelsea player to be the best role model that I can be.”
Hudson-Odoi can now return to playing in matches, with Premier League resuming on June 17.
