Following the sale of Raheem Sterling, Thomas Tuchel was compelled to make a decision on the future of Callum Hudson-Odoi this summer. In recent years, the Cobham graduate has been rumored to be leaving Stamford Bridge, but nothing has happened.
Hudson-contract Odoi’s with the Blues expires in 2024, and he has made just 18 Premier League starts under Tuchel since he replaced Frank Lampard as manager. He’s had to contend with the likes of Christian Pulisic, Mason Mount, and Hakim Ziyech, among others, for a place in the first team despite several injuries.
Todd Boehly may regret his choice to let Hudson-Odoi leave Chelsea if he does not resolve the winger’s future now that Sterling is at Chelsea’s disposal. On Bettingodds.com, Glen Johnson talked about the upcoming crossroads in his career.
There are times when Hudson-Odoi “seems unplayable, and there are times when he appears to have no place in the Premier League,” says the ex-Chelsea player. “I think he has a lot to contribute if he gets his head together, but I don’t think he has much time left at Chelsea.
“Although he’s young, I believe he has a lot to learn. For him, it’s necessary to get out of his comfort zone and play football every week, which is why he chose a team like Newcastle United. Newcastle could be able to bring out the best in him.”
Adding to the conversation, Johnson suggested that Chelsea look into the possibility of loaning Hudson-Odoi out. He stated: “If he goes somewhere to play every week, a loan move could work.
“To let him leave for £100million might be another one of those signings where Chelsea let him go and then try and repurchase him for £100million in two years’ time. He has a lot to contribute. Let him go on a year-long loan or even two years, and let him learn his craft by playing every week, and then call him back is better than throwing everything away technically.”
In every age category from under-16 through under-19, Hudson-Odoi has represented both England and Ghana. The UEFA European Under-17 Championship took place in April of that year, and he was a member of the squad.
He scored against Turkey in the semifinals and against Spain in the final, despite England’s penalty shootout loss to Spain. He was selected for the tournament’s all-star team because of his impressive accomplishments.
During England’s 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup campaign, Hudson-Odoi scored once in seven appearances and played the complete 90 minutes in their 5–2 final triumph over Spain, which they won 5–2. In a match against Belarus in March 2018, Hudson-Odoi scored for England’s under-18 team.
England’s under-19 team faced Belgium in September 2018 and he scored a goal. England’s under-21 national team invited him to their roster in March 2019. For Gareth Southgate’s UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Montenegro
he was called up to the senior team just a few days later due to injuries to some of the senior squad players. Hudson-Odoi claimed he was “shocked” and characterized it as “a dream come true” when he was called up for the first time.
On March 22, he made his Wembley Stadium debut, coming on as a 70th-minute substitute in a 5–0 victory over the Czech Republic. With that, he broke Duncan Edwards’ record of 18 years and 135 days for the youngest England player to make a competitive match debut, by 40 days.
