Callum Hudson-Odoi has admitted that Chelsea boss Frank Lampard can be tough at him on times, but he is delighted at Stamford Bridge and feels it’s making him a better player.

Lampard has started to build an exciting group stacked with young English talent, which is nicely balanced by some top experience.

Hudson-Odoi has committed his future in West London and has come through the club’s academy ranks.

The 19-year-old has had a decent start to the campaign without reaching the dizzy heights that he’s capable of.

He’s scored one goal and supplied four assists in 11 senior games so far, but is a skilful individual capable of much more.

Hudson-Odoi has detailed the great working relationship that he has with the manager.

“He is hard on me, but it’s in a good way because he wants me to improve and keep getting better,” Hudson-Odoi told the Telegraph.

“When the manager is telling me stuff, I always want to listen and improve my game because I’m not there yet. I know I can always get better and keep getting better.”

Hudson-Odoi is away on international duty with England at present and it may end up being a great opportunity to get more minutes.

In-form duo Willian and Christian Pulisic are currently keeping him out of the Chelsea XI, but fans must remember he’s still a rising talent with his future ahead of him.

Lampard is definitely the right mentor for him by the looks of his managerial career so far and he has a focus on developing youngster.
