Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi believes the presence of former Chelsea academy managers and current first-team assistant coaches Jody Morris and Joe Edwards has given hope to youngsters coming from the academy.

Hudson-Odoi told Chelsea App, The 5th Stand that their knowledge of the academy players has helped in integrating the academy youngsters into the first-team squad.

“Jody has a great bond with the Academy, he knows all the players and all the staff over there,” he said.

“I think he knows when they’re ready to come up and when they’re ready to train and be involved.

“He’s helped bring all the players up and he’s made everybody aware that if you’re doing well and working hard in training then you’ll get the opportunity to play.

“It gives you a special feeling to work extra hard because you want to be playing in games, you want to be playing in any match possible. You just have the feeling that if Jody’s there, he’s going to try and push the young players to come up.”

With the help of Jody Morris and Joe Edwards, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has managed to promote and play a good number of academy players in the first team this season.
