Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has given his verdict on Callum Hudson-Odoi’s decision not to go for international duty with England U21s side.

Tuchel said: “It’s his decision and nothing to do with my opinion or the club’s.

“If I speculate a little bit I think it’s about disappointment that he is not nominated for the first team, but at the same time maybe he did not have enough minutes to be nominated for the first team.

“I could see the upgrade in having some minutes and being in a leading role for the Under 21s, but he decided differently so he will deal with the consequences.”
