18 year old Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi believes Chelsea’s transfer ban has helped the development of young players at the club.
The Blues were unable to sign players this summer after FIFA handed Chelsea a two-window ban from signing players.
Due to the ban imposed on the club, Chelsea have turned to youth this season with players like Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Reece James getting chances in the first team this season.
“I would say the transfer ban is a good thing for us because it gives more players more opportunities to play,” Hudson-Odoi said ahead of England Under-21’s games against Slovenia and Austria.
“I don’t think it’s really restricting anything.
“Even if there wasn’t a transfer ban I think the young players would still be working hard and pushing in training to get a start.
“The manager is obviously rewarding the players depending on who’s working hard, who’s training well.
“It doesn’t matter if you’re the best in the world or the worst in the world, as long as you have the right mentality and work ethic.”
