Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was one of the best midfielders in the world during his playing days but he has admitted he wasn’t as good as Callum Hudson-Odoi when he was 18.

Hudson-Odoi has just one year left on his Chelsea contract and Lampard has promised to convince the youngster that his future is at Chelsea.

Lampard said: “I remember being 17, 18, 19. I wasn’t as good as Callum at that age. Without a doubt.

“I will pay a lot of care and a lot of attention to Callum and try to get him – because of his contractual situation – to stay.

“Not on any lies or false statements – but because I know what a great player he is.”
