Callum Hudson-Odoi can role model Raheem Sterling, according to his Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.
“I only want the best for him and I mention Raheem Sterling because he is such a good role model for young English players who play in a similar position to him,” Lampard said.
“Because of hard work behind the scenes you can see what Raheem has brought to his game in all senses and that is what I want from Callum, that starts with training where he can get every ounce out of it.
“From the moment he came back onto the training pitch we have been on at him with what he can do to improve – off the ball, on the ball, all the things that will make him a really top player.”
“The minute I took the job I made contact with Callum because of the contract situation, it was absolutely the right decision for the club and that’s why I got involved there,” Lampard added.
“One thing with Callum is that I know him and Jody [Morris] knows him so we know the talent but we also know what more we want out of him, which is normal for any young player.
“It’s been great to see him show signs of that and I’m pleased, it was a great night for him against Ajax. I am really happy with his progress.”
