“It is dangerous” – Sarri talks about Hudson-Odoi

High-flying Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi found the back of the net once again for Chelsea last night, but manager Maurizio Sarri wasted no time bringing the youngster back down to Earth.

Hudson-Odoi has now directly contributed to seven goals in his last seven appearances in Chelsea blue, having scored three and assisted four. That’s the level of productivity that we’ve been desperately hoping our frontmen would be able to produce this season – yet it’s not enough for Sarri.
Sarri continually opts to overlook Hudson-Odoi, which is bizarre. He’s not only one of the most promising young wingers you’re likely to find anywhere in the world, but he’s already good enough to nail down a starting spot in our starting eleven. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out why he’s been unable to.
Following our 3-0 victory over Dynamo Kiev, which Hudson-Odoi marked with a goal-scoring 12-minute cameo, Sarri further demonstrated his lack of understanding when it comes to dealing with the situation surrounding the teenager. Our manager is quoted by Sky Sports saying:
“He will be ready to be at the top at 22 or 23 years. We need to improve without the media of the pressure of the media, fans the club. His training is really very good.”
“When you have pressure when you are 18 it is dangerous, you can lose the target. The target is to improve. So it is dangerous. This is why I don’t like to speak about him.”
Sarri is not necessarily wrong in his efforts to protect Hudson-Odoi, but in this case his actions may prove counterproductive. The Guardian reported back in January that he’d handed in a transfer request in hope of forcing through a move to Bayern Munich. If the situation doesn’t change, neither will his supposed willingness to go there.
