Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is wasting the qualities of Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi by playing him as a right wing-back.
This is according to Daily Mail’s Jeorge Bird, who has urged the winger to leave Chelsea if he doesn’t play in his best position – which is as a left winger.
Bird wrote in his Daily Mail column: “Callum Hudson-Odoi ended up staying at Chelsea this summer, but whether that will prove to beneficial for the 20-year-old remains to be seen.
“Having been an unused substitute for the first three Premier League games of the season, Hudson-Odoi was finally called into action with a start against Aston Villa at the weekend.
“However, as has often been the case under Thomas Tuchel, Hudson-Odoi was deployed for much of the game as a wing-back, a position which certainly doesn’t enable him to make the most of his qualities.
“At his best Hudson-Odoi is capable of dazzling with his trickery, but using him in this position limits his creativity while also highlighting his defensive flaws.
“Getting into the Chelsea team as a winger won’t be easy, but if Hudson-Odoi isn’t deployed in his best position then it is probably better for him to leave.”
