Callum Hudson-Odoi is making waves in Germany. A move under Tuchel’s reign that saw Hudson-Odoi leave Stamford Bridge is blossoming into something that may well pay dividends for Chelsea next season and beyond.
They are likely to get a player back that is refreshed and re-invigorated after a spell away playing football every week game-in game-out.
Let’s not forget, it wasn’t that long ago that Chelsea were fighting off Bayern Munich in order to persuade Hudson-Odoi to renew his contract.
The player, who faces Atletico Madrid this week in the Champions League, has admitted that he hasn’t yet had a conversation with Chelsea boss Graham Potter, but it seems inevitable.
Speaking to the BBC:
“I don’t know what the future holds. Obviously, at the end of the season I’ll go back to Chelsea regardless and we’ll see what happens from there. That’s where I’ve always been since I was a kid.
“I always look at stuff as a learning curve, never negative. It’s always a learning factor for what you do next time.”
“My main focus right now is being here and helping the team as much as possible. I don’t see that far down the line yet.”
With all that said, it does appear that Potter’s formation and tactics would suit Callum down to the ground.
Let’s hope that Chelsea are finally able to get the most out of Hudson-Odoi’s potential when he returns to the club next season.
