Chelsea fans’ prayers were finally answered when Callum Hudson-Odoi was drafted in to replace Marcus Rashford after the Manchester United forward withdrew from the England squad to face Czech Republic and Montenegro this month.
The 18-year-old Blues ace has hardly had a look in at Stamford Bridge this season and Maurizio Sarri has received plenty of criticism for his favouritism of Willian and Pedro, for instance, over youth talent.
The experienced manager has said that he doesn’t believe Hudson-Odoi is ‘ready’ to start week-in, week-out for one of the Premier League’s top sides and that he won’t reach the top level for another four years or so.
The Pl>ymaker FC squad name and shame the “clueless mugs” and “total chancers” who have darkened the doors of their football clubs in the video below…
However, Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate has said that he would have no hesitation starting the electric winger of fellow youngster Jadon Sancho in either Euro 2020 qualifier and that both are ready for the challenge.
Chelsea fans on Twitter were thrilled by the former Middlesbrough honcho’s words, with some even calling for him to replace Sarri at the helm…
Southgate is exceptional. Showing up yet another Chelsea manager for the crap they are and shouldn’t have been appointed by a clueless board.
