Chelsea assistant manager Jody Morris has challenged Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi to improve his performances for the club but he also insists the 19 year old needs time.
The 19 year old winger has been heavily criticised by fans recently for his poor performances.
Morris said: “Being away for a year, a lot can happen in a year, especially at such a young age. We all saw what happened with his contract but now that’s done and dusted it is a little bit like let’s knuckle down and get to work.
“The signs at the moment are that he wants to do that. He wants to work hard and improve. The proof is in the pudding and when he gets his chance, he has to make sure he is ready to take it.
“But we do have to keep reminding ourselves that to rupture you Achilles as an 18-year-old, having not played much first-team football and to play the way we want to play then it will take time, I think.
“I think those are things you do have to take into account; you need to give the kid time. Can he do better? Yes. He knows he can do better.”
