Hudson-Odoi on playing wing-back

Chelsea star Callum Hudson-Odoi admits that playing as a wing-back has made him a better player, but he’d rather be picked further forward.

The Blues academy graduate has had to fill a number of different roles since Thomas Tuchel’s Stamford Bridge arrival last year.

And while he appreciates the developments this has enabled him to make, the 21-year-old would rather be utilised in a more natural position.

He told Chelsea’s official website: “I’d definitely say I prefer more-attacking positions for myself, as a winger or a No10 kind of player.

“Obviously I like to be direct and try to create scoring opportunities for the team, hopefully try to score some myself. Playing in that position I’m more comfortable and I feel more free while playing there as well.

“So it’s definitely a nice position, to know that I can go out there, be myself, be free and try to create and score goals as well, but at the same time playing at wing-back is definitely more defensive.

“Your mentality is more about defending the goal than attacking the goal at times.”
