Callum Hudson-Odoi just needed some time away from Wingbacks FC

Callum Hudson-Odoi has already explained why he decided to go out on loan this season – get fit, get minutes, be good again – so his latest interview with The Athletic doesn’t offer anything new in that regard, although the timing is still a little prophetic. It was because Chelsea were relegated in Salzburg on a day when they lost wing-backs Raheem Sterling and Christian Pulisic.

Such a fate has befallen Hudson-O’don too many times over the past two years for anyone he loves – the fans, the coach or the player himself – so he wanted to spend some time away from Wingbacks FC. A little rest, to make the heart dear.

“on time, [playing wing-back] It was fine. But sometimes in my head, ‘What am I doing, why am I in this position? I’m defending more than attacking. Wherever I play, I always try to do my best and help the team – it’s not always about myself. I never argued; I just got into it.

But to get the most out of yourself, you have to play where you feel most comfortable and do what you can do best. […] My thought was, ‘I have to get out of there.’ Not in a polite way, like I don’t like the club or don’t want to be at the club, I don’t like the club. There is no such thing.

As before, Calem was quick to respond that it wasn’t a personal attack on Thomas Tuchel, that he was highly rated as a coach and as a person, but that he’s playing where he chooses… well… it’s his choice. , you know. As anyone would.

“I never swear or talk about bad things. [Tuchel]. He was always a good guy, a good guy, on and off the field. It was just… with a lot of great players in the team, you obviously have to fight for your place and work hard. It was definitely difficult with him at times but you have to keep at it and do what you can.

Hudson-Odoi has been impressive individually so far, while Bayern Munich have struggled all season; He recently sacked his coach and hired former Liverpool and Real Madrid star Xabi Alonso as coach. Maybe he can turn the team around and help make his name in senior management (this is his first appointment). Calum could do him and himself great favors if he regained his promise.

“I had to play football in a new place. Start again. Try my best wherever I am. And then back to Chelsea at the end of the loan.

“[Todd Boehly] Make sure you do your thing out there – be confident, be independent, be the player you want to be. [And] I feel like I’m back to being myself again – back to that level before the injury when I’m more straight and dribble.

“The last two seasons I’ve been a bit behind, I’ve been through a lot. I’m better off. I feel like I’m doing much better now. I feel sharper and more direct on the ball. What’s missing now are goals and assists. Then everything will be fine.
