Ruben Loftus-Cheek has said he understands exactly what Callum Hudson-Odoi is going through.
“The fans have been great with me and Callum. Hopefully, that happens, but we’ll see,” Loftus-Cheek said at Stamford Bridge after the win over Dynamo. “I know what he is going through, having been at that age in the first team as well. If I can help him do well, I’d love to do that.
“He is such a good kid and seeing him do so well I’m really happy for him. To give him that assist felt good. I think he is doing so well now, he wants to play. He is young, fresh, has that momentum. He is scoring so, when he doesn’t start and feels he should, it’s part of the game.
“I’ve told him ‘you’re at a big club, you’re young, just keep your head focused and keep doing what you’re doing’, as he did against Dynamo. He came on and did well. If he’s good enough, he’s good enough. I think the manager knows him well.
“He sees him in training every day, and he will make the decision. But Callum is doing well at the minute, and that’s all you can do.”
