Callum ‘is ready’! Sarri has special Chelsea message for £30m sensation Hudson-Odoi
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has claimed Callum Hudson-Odoi is already at the same level as Willian and Pedro.
It has been reported Bayern have already seen two bids for Hudson-Odoi rejected by the Blues, with his future up in the air as his contract expires at the end of next season.
The Bundesliga giants are not giving up and they intend to offer Hudson-Odoi the number 10 shirt should he quit Stamford Bridge for the Allianz Arena, according to the latest reports that has been circling.
Sarri, however, believes it will be better for Hudson-Odoi to remain at Chelsea as he can have a ‘great future’ in his homeland, as he also believes that the winger is operating close to the level of Willian and Pedro.
‘He is ready I think [to play in the bigger games],’ said Sarri on the Metro website.
‘Of course, we have very important players in the same position. I can play with only two wingers. But now he is ready.
‘Of course, some times he will be on the bench but the same as Willian and Pedro. I can start to consider him on the same level.’
Here is what we think.
Hudson-Odoi is a brilliant talent that has a big bright future with the club, so he needs to stay put for the foreseeable future as Sarri is ready to hand him the kind of game time that he is looking for.
The Italian has a great track record with youngsters and moving to Bayern now could be a big career mistake, he just needs to take a look at Mario Gotze and Xherdan Shaqiri to see that a big move so early in his career is not always the best option.
