Former England national team manager Glenn Hoddle has told young Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi that he’s unproven at the top level of football
Glenn Hoddle talked about Hudson-Odoi while the former Tottenham Hotspur manager was doing his punditry job on BT Sports as he charged the player that he has to play more games before being considered as an elite player.
The ex-Three Lions of England manager was reacting to his cameo appearance for Chelsea against Dynamo Kiev FC of Ukraine in the first leg of their Europa League last 16 ties.
Glenn Hoddle believes that Callum Hudson-Odoi has to show his quality for a long period of time before he can be regarded as a top-level footballer.
Callum Hudson-Odoi scored on the stroke of full-time to give the Blues a convincing 3-0 first-leg lead against the Ukrainians.
Chelsea had taken a 17th-minute lead through Pedro Rodriguez before Brazilian international Willian added a second goal in the second half via a freekick.
Chelsea fans expressed their frustrations on social media after Callum Hudson-Odoi was again left out of the Blues starting XI for the Dynamo Kiev.
He has played 766 minutes for Chelsea this season including just 311 minutes of Premier League football.
