Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard has urged Chelsea star Callum Hudson-Odoi to improve and show what he's capable of doing whenever he's on the pitch or in training.

Despite rejecting Bayern Munich to sign a new contract at Chelsea, the youngster has found playing time hard to come by since returning from an Achilles injury.

But Frank Lampard is sure that his best is yet to come.

"I don’t think his best was last season. His best is to come because he has just turned 19. He is in the really early stage of his development, and he has come back from a really serious injury, so I have had to manage that with him.

"There’s real competition in wide areas, and he is going to get better and better, but he has to apply himself in training every day. He has to show when he comes on in periods of games what he can do and bring to the table if he is going to start more games.

"He will do that for sure he will do that. We have to be a little bit steady with Callum because of his age and the injury he has been through."  Lampard told the press at Cobham.

Callum Hudson-Odoi has not started a league game for Chelsea since Chelsea's one-nil victory over Newcastle United on 19th October 2019.
