Thomas Tuchel challenged Hudson-Odoi to earn his place

Sun 12 September 2021 | 11:51

After Chelsea blocked Callum Hudson-Odoi's move to Borussia Dortmund in the summer transfer window, Blues boss Thomas Tuchel is now challenging the 20-year-olds to secure a place in the starting line-up.

"

We have spoken. It was a very easy decision for me to make on the last day of the transfer period,

" The German coach told reporters.

"We cannot let a player go who is in the 18/19 man squad. He is able to play as a right wing-back, a left wing-back, in the two number 10 positions. He knows the group, we know him very well. There was no chance to say yes on the last day.

"For him personally it may have been a good opportunity but for us and our targets that we want to achieve, it was simply impossible. It was an easy one for me actually."
