Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has hailed Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi for his performance in Chelsea’s 1-0 Champions League victory over Malmo on Tuesday evening.

Hudson-Odoi provided a superb cross for Hakim Ziyech’s goal against Malmo.

Speaking after the game, Ferdinand said: “This is what we have been waiting for (from Callum Hudson-Odoi).

“We have heard about Callum since he came through the ranks at Chelsea but he hasn’t quite lit it up for Chelsea.

“But if he keeps doing this he will live up to the hype. However, he has come back from a big Achilles injury so we have to remember that.”

Chelsea legend Joe Cole also added: “He (Hudson-Odoi) has added more to his game under Tuchel. He is a valuable player for Chelsea.”
