17-year-old Chelsea forward Callum Hudson-Oboi has revealed Chelsea boss Antonio Conte informed him that he will receive more first-team chances if he continues to work hard.
Hudson-Oboi has made two appearances for Chelsea this season, his debut against Newcastle United in the 3-0 FA Cup win last month and a Premier League appearance against Bournemouth.
“The manager spoke to me before bringing me into the squad,” Hudson-Oboi told Chelsea’s matchday programme.
“He was telling me that I’ve just got to keep working hard and have the right mentality to play.
“Obviously I have had to be patient because I’m still young, but when I got my debut, that’s when I knew it was my time to come on the pitch, do what I do, make an impact and show I’m ready.”
