If life in football is all about picking the right moments to shine then Callum Hudson-Odoi has chosen a good path and his ability to wait for his chances has been perfect.
Hudson-Odoi has displayed the perfect characteristics in his seemingly anxious waiting period. It has been long, especially for an 18-year old, but he has behaved himself. The offers from Bayern Munich did not fool him into showing a dark side to the club that has nurtured him all through his youthful days.
Chelsea are refusing to sell him to the Bavarians who are promising him lots of first-team minutes and of course more money. But Hudson-Odoi has kept his head down. Although Maurizio Sarri is yet to give him extended time on the pitch among the highly paid stars at Stamford Bridge, Hudson-Odoi has not sulked or looked out place when given the rare chance.
In an interview with the Independent while out for a party, the England U-20 starlet says he is ‘never nervous’ and always ready to play his part when called on.
“I’m never nervous. I’m always excited to see what the game holds for me. I’m always ready, no matter what the situation is.”

That probably explains his two goals and one assist in only two starts in the Europa League another one goal in the FA Cup plus two assists in two starts.
