Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has named Manchester City star Raheem Sterling as his role model.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard will be happy with Hudson-Odoi’s choice after telling Hudson-Odoi in October that Sterling should be his role model.

“Someone like Raheem is like an idol to me. The position he plays, and what he’s doing for club and country, is an amazing thing, which I will try to replicate myself,” Hudson-Odoi said.

“It’s an amazing feeling to have someone like him doing what he’s doing and being around you every time. I want to keep learning off what he does.

“Raheem’s a very nice guy, very encouraging, very positive about everything he does. When I first came in, I didn’t expect him to be so nice.

“Of course, he’s a nice person but when you see somebody always welcoming you, just talking to you, giving you advice on how he plays and just being around you a lot, it makes you feel so welcome in the team.”
