Maurizio Sarri: Callum Hudson-Odoi nearing same level of other Chelsea wings

       Gordon Strachan and Curtis Davies discuss Callum Hudson-Odoi's position at Chelsea and why he should leave

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has urged rising star Callum Hudson-Odoi to turn down Bayern Munich's advances and continue his career at Stamford Bridge.

Sarri declined to comment on his apparent pursuit of the Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuaín, who is on loan at Milan from Juventus, but he did say that if Álvaro Morata departed, with loan moves to Sevilla and Atletico Madrid mooted, Chelsea would have to recruit a striker.

"He is working very well and I'd like to have him in the future".

Bayern Munich are keen to take the 18-year-old off Chelsea's hands as they look to replace Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben, and Sancho has told Hudson-Odoi that Germany would a great place for him to develop.

Joining us on our coverage of both Chelsea v Newcastle and Premier League Tonight this weekend is Joe Cole, who has just started his new job with the Blues. "Of course, for playing as a central midfielder in our team is not easy", said Sarri.

Worst case scenario, if a McCarthy hiring didn't pan out, at least, for once, they gave the fan base someone they wanted. The coach seems to be taking the approach of sitting out for a season and letting the ideal job to fall into his lap.

It's hard to tell whether Hudson-Odoi simply wanted to avoid the cameras being on him or was in general disagreement with the chants asking him to stay. "We've played with each other at England". He's a very mature lad for his age, he knows what direction he's going in and he's improving all the time. It has been left short in only one position at the moment because I think that Hudson-Odoi is improving.

The 18-year-old forward was promoted to the Blues senior team in 2017 under former boss Antonio Conte but has only made three topflight appearances for the club since then.

The England Under-19 global has played eight times for Chelsea's first team this season, but has featured in just 42 minutes of the club's 2018-19 Premier League campaign, which has led to frustration on his part.

Sarri said: "We need to solve this problem. Now, he needs to improve in some movements without the ball".

I think as football fans we must also change our narrative because we obsess about giving young players an opportunity but then when they get one, because we want instant success as well, the first thing we did is question if they're good enough!
