Chelsea defender Rudiger: Let Hudson-Odoi be 18!

Chelsea must allow Callum Hudson-Odoi "be 18", according to defender Antonio Rudiger.

Hudson-Odoi has reportedly asked to leave Stamford Bridge in the summer. His contract expires in 2020 and Bayern Munich have publicly expressed their interest.

Asked if the England U21 international should be integrated as regular starter at Chelsea, Rudiger responded: "That's what he can become, yes.

"But he is 18 years old. And one should let him be 18. And do not pretend that he is 27 and already experienced everything."
