Callum Husdon-Odoi has revealed detailed of his ‘rollercoaster’ career.
Hudson-Odoi’s career over the last 18 months has been as he would have hoped but he’s confident that it will change over the next few years. He believes that he’s still rather young and can develop into a world-class player for Chelsea and England.
“I am only 20! Sometimes people forget the age because I have been around for a while,” Hudson-Odoi told reporters at Molineux. “I started young. I have just turned 20. I have kicked on well and I can keep progressing day in day out.
“The last 18 months have been strange, not something I’d have liked, but we have to deal with it. I want to look to the future and hopefully better things will come. I put pressure on myself. I want to prove myself every time, do my best every game.
“Sometimes there is a lot of expectation and you just have to play your normal game, and the result will go your way. I just say to myself keep being positive, things might go wrong but be positive and hope the end result will be good.
“It has been a rollercoaster, up and down, up and down. But stuff like that you move on from and think of the present and the future. For myself, I want to make sure I am training every day. I am working my hardest, trying to get in the team and working my way back to the senior England team.
“I keep trying, working. In the last 18 months, I have enjoyed bits and not enjoyed bits. I feel I am getting more confident game by game. Gareth [Southgate] and Aidy say: ‘Get your crosses across goal, get shots on target, and keep being a threat, the player everyone fears when you play them.’
“I want to be on the ball. Try to work as hard as possible for the team as well. I want to get wins and trophies as well.”
