Trevoh Chalobah and Tammy Abraham both took to Instagram to praise Chelsea loanee Callum Hudson-Odoi after he scored in the Champions League group stages last night.
Hudson-Odoi, 21, is currently on loan for the season with German Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen.
The English attacker managed to impress on Wednesday night on the Champions League stage, scoring in Leverkusen’s 2-2 draw against Atletico Madrid.
He’s already played 11 games since joining Leverkusen on loan, but this week’s goal was his first for the club.
The winger already has the experience of 126 first-team appearances in Chelsea colours, but this year is earmarked as a big one for his development as tries to kick on a gear by playing constantly.
Hudson-Odoi in Champions League
Hudson-Odoi posted on Instagram after his Champions League goal, which received responses in the comment section from a past and present Chelsea player.
Current Blues defender Trevoh Chalobah responded with a fire emoji. Meanwhile, Roma’s Tammy Abraham posted two clapping emojis.
Hudson-Odoi, along with Chalobah and Abraham, are some of the excellent players to develop in Chelsea’s academy at Cobham.
Many Blues fans will hope that Hudson-Odoi is capable of rejoining the squad at Stamford Bridge next season alongside the likes of Mason Mount, Conor Gallagher and Reece James.
The on-loan Leverkusen youngster needs to try enjoy his football this season in Germany by scoring and assisting regularly.
It’s been a bit of a turbulent time in Leverkusen with the change of manager already this season, with Xabi Alonso taking charge this month, so the Chelsea loanee has a fresh challenge to impress the new boss.
Chelsea are under new management since Hudson-Odoi exited on loan, too. It’s going to be interesting to see what Graham Potter makes of him in the summer.
Hudson-Odoi recently said he feels like he’s getting back to himself again, so don’t be surprised if we hear more about his loan spell during the rest of the campaign.
