Since winter, rumors have been bubbling about a change from Callum Hudson-Odoi from FC Chelsea to FC Bavaria Munich. The change of coach with the English could now end the poker, although the player should have a clear opinion.
According to “picture” the 18-year-old also wants to switch to the German record champion months after the first offers of FC Bavaria. In Munich, Callum Hudson-Odoi would have the chance of a regular spot after the departure of Franck Ribbey and Arjen Robben. A perspective that he did not have under Chelsea team manager Maurizio Sarri last season.
However, as the Italian now switches to Juventus, the situation could change fundamentally. As “Daily Mail” reports, Hudson-Odoi will extend his 2020-year contract with the blues, when club legend Frank Lampard takes over the coach post.
Lampard played for the Londoners for 13 years. At the height of his career at Chelsea, he won the Champions League 2012 in the final against the FC Bavaria. Almost a year ago, the 40-year-old started his first coaching job at Derby County, England. The Rams barely missed the ascent.
Lampard has been in discussion as Sarri’s successor for a long time. However, Erik ten Hag, Ajax Amsterdam’s success coach, is also considered a hot candidate.
Hudson-Odoi usually played a subordinate role under Sarri. In the past Premier League season, the 18-year-old was only in the square ten times before he was badly injured.
Lampard advises Hudson-Odoi against switching to FC Bavaria
Under Lampard, Hudson-Odoi hopes for more shares, according to the English sheet. The former English national player had also advised his compatriot at the beginning of the year not to switch to FC Bavaria.
“I would welcome it if a young English player who has just entered the first team and has incredible talent would stay,” quotes the “Mirror” Lampard. The 18-year-old should bite his way through and become a “great player for Chelsea and England”: “I want him to stay. It [Chelsea, Red.] is a great club, a fantastic club.”
So if Lampard were actually to take over Chelsea’s fate, the chances for FC Bavaria would probably be even worse than they already are. Recently, Italian journalist and “ESPN” expert Gabriele Marcotti had already reported that Hudson-Odoi will probably extend his contract with FC Chelsea beyond 2020.
