'I don't like seeing that': Paul Canoville is really unhappy with what Tuchel has done to 21-year-old Chelsea youngster

Former Chelsea player Paul Canoville has claimed on Twitter that he is unhappy with Thomas Tuchel’s treatment of Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The 21-year-old is rumoured to be leaving the club he has been with his entire career, with him struggling to make a statement under the current manager.

He has frequently been utilised in an unfamiliar wing-back role for the injuries suffered by Reece James and Ben Chilwell at various parts of last season.

This has been a result of a struggle to break into the Blues frontline, despite the lack of goals contributed by the other members of attack.

This treatment, alongside the major links of a move away from the club, have angered former Blue Canoville, who has likened his treatment to that which Tammy Abraham also endured at Stamford Bridge.

He said: “Nah. I don’t like seeing that! Callum being treated like Tammy. Kid bust a gut working through pre-season to be fit again from injury. Freezing him out ain’t a good look. Nope! Not happy TT!”

Hudson-Odoi has always been touted as a player with potential to be the greatest academy graduate Cobham as ever seen, although it’s fair to say fans who bought into this theory will have been left underwhelmed at what they’ve seen so far.

The England international has just four Premier League goals in 72 appearances, with the majority of his goal involvements coming in early rounds of cup competitions.

With Raheem Sterling joining the club and almost certainly nailing down a starting role for the upcoming season in attack, it looks to be even more difficult for the 21-year-old to break in on his favoured left-hand-side.

With that being said, a Premier League loan could be the making of him, with him being afforded regular minutes to develop his game at the top level.
