Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi has revealed Chelsea star Eden Hazard is his role model.

Hudson-Odoi made his senior debut against Newcastle United in the FA Cup last month before featuring against Bournemouth in the Premier League, both off the bench.

“I came here at Under-8s and I’ve become a big Chelsea fan,” Hudson-Odoi told Chelsea’s matchday programme. “When you play for the club you support it’s a massive feeling. You just can’t believe it.

“All these years I’ve been sitting in the stands and looking at players like Didier Drogba and, as I’ve got older, Eden Hazard and Willian, because they are in the sort of positions I play and I’d like to try to emulate them.

“When I was on the pitch with Hazard for the first team, it was such a great feeling.

“He’s my role model and, after all this time I’ve been talking about him and watching him, I couldn’t believe I was playing with him.”
