Ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Aston Villa on Sunday, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has sent a warning to Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The 19 year old winger broke lockdown rules last month after he invited a woman he met online to his home.

He was arrested after the woman claimed she was raped but later released on bail the same day.

The police will take no further action on the allegations and Lampard has warned the winger to learn his lesson from what happened.

“Firstly I’m very happy that obviously in the eyes of the law it’s been sorted out, that was the main concern at first,” Lampard said, as cited by Sky Sports.

“So that was positive for us, the situation for Callum.

“I’ve hopefully shown in my short time in management that I’m very sympathetic towards the idea that we’re not angels or saints, and that we can make mistakes, particularly at a young age.

“I will never be one to come down too harshly on that, albeit we have had conversations, myself and Callum. And the big conversation now is to make sure that he learns his lesson from what happened.

“He broke lockdown, that wasn’t good enough. He’s admitted to that, and we move on. But the next thing is to train consistently at a really high level, to work hard in training every day.

“He came back from lockdown and got injured pretty early in this period, so now he’s having to work hard to get fit again.

“And as much as the pitfalls off the pitch, I want to see how he can work on the training pitch and get into this team, and perform to the levels we all believe he can.

“It doesn’t come easy. That’s the big thing I say to Callum a lot and something he really has to take on board now.”
