Maurizio Sarri has hailed Callum Hudson-Odoi’s full Premier League debut last night and believes that the midfielder can become one of the best in Europe.
“Callum started for the first time in the Premier League but he has played 20 matches or so for us,” Chelsea’s head coach told Sky Sports. “I was sure about him. He played very well, and an assist for the first goal. He defended very well, and for us this is very important. This is very helpful for us.”
“He’s a good boy. Of course, now, he can risk stopping to improve because he can risk thinking that he is a player at 100 per cent, but that’s not true. It’s impossible to be at the top when you are 18. He needs to improve, he can improve, and I want him to improve. He can become one of the best players in Europe.”
“Callum is ready to play in every match, even the most difficult matches. He improved a lot over the season. I am really happy for him. Not only in attack, but in defence. For this team, the future is could be good with Callum.”
