• Chelsea coach did not see all of winger’s England displays
• Hudson-Odoi, 18, still waiting for first Premier League start
Maurizio Sarri has insisted his cautious use of Callum Hudson-Odoi in the Premier League is for the teenager’s own good and the Italian head coach preached patience as England’s latest full international prepares to resume life on the Chelsea bench.
The winger had been a surprise call-up to Gareth Southgate’s senior squad from the under-21s, duly becoming his country’s youngest debutant in a competitive match against the Czech Republic before starting in Montenegro. Sarri did not see Hudson-Odoi’s display in Podgorica in its entirety, watching around 25 minutes of the game and observing he had struggled for the first 20 of those, while adding that the quality of opponent in Euro 2020 qualification is “really very low” and “not Premier League level”.
