Chelsea boss Sarri has said Hudson-Odoi will start the match against Brighton or West Ham and believes his team are doing well in England.
Sarri said: “In pre-season after four or five training sessions, I realised that Callum was a player with very great potential. In my opinion, in that moment he wasn’t ready to play at this level, but during the season he has improved and he is ready.”
“I decided at the beginning of the season that he has to stay with us and I put him in the squad. I know Callum very well. I want him to improve more because the potential is high. Callum is always in my mind, in my opinion, he is our future. He is ready to play.”
He said: “I am not happy, of course. I am not concerned. It can happen. I can understand well the frustration of our fans. We are not doing so badly, this season we have won 33 matches, I think in England, only Man City did better.”
“Probably we started very well and so our fans thought that everything was really very easy for us but it isn’t true. We have to work to improve, I think that if you take a coach with my characteristics, you have to work.”
“They have to help the players during the match, after the match they can say anything.”
