Maurizio Sarri Tells Callum Hudson-Odoi To Turn Down Bayern

Christian Pulisic Says Chelsea Style Played Role in Transfer Decision

Maurizio Sarri has admitted that promising English teenager Callum Hudson-Odoi has the potential to become a great player at Chelsea FC.

Bayern will have been particularly interested to see whether or not their transfer target, who only turned 18 two months ago, would sink or swim but there was no hint of the pressure getting to Hudson-Odoi.

He has become a part of Chelsea's first-team squad over the past year, but has still only featured three times in the Premier League, and reports suggest he is refusing to discuss a new contract until he is given assurances over playing time.

Husdon-Odoi was given a rare run out by Maurizio Sarri last weekend in the FA Cup, where he impressed by providing two assists for Alvaro Morata in a 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest.

The Chelsea boss revealed last week he was not aware the move was going ahead until it was done and with the 20-year-old United States worldwide returning to previous club Borussia Dortmund on loan for the remainder of the season there has been no talks between the pair.

"He has experience. He knows football, I think he had the opportunity to learn in many different changing rooms when he was so young, before, so he brings always a confidence, energy for the team, and then in the pitch he showed that it doesn't matter the game, he's always going to show his qualities. Sad".

"To stay here is better for him", the Italian is quoted as saying by BBC Sport. He is improving, I'm very happy with him.

But neither of those defects were evident at Wembley as Hudson-Odoi represented one of the only positives Chelsea could take from their defeat to Spurs.

He has now played 11 times for Chelsea and scored his first goal in the Europa League in November.
