Chelsea management unhappy with Sarri handling of Hudson-Odoi

Chelsea management are unhappy with Maurizio Sarri's handling of Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The Mirror says after the meltdown at Manchester City, there is added concern and unhappiness from above that the Italian manager's treatment of teenage winger Hudson-Odoi doesn't tally with the message from the club.

Chelsea rejected Hudson-Odoi's transfer request last month in the hope Sarri would give him enough game time to convince him to stay long term, with his current contract up in 2020.

He was left out of the squad for the 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth, played only the last 13 minutes of the 5-0 win against Huddersfield as a late sub and was omitted from Sarri's squad again for Sunday's humiliation at The Etihad.

Sarri took Hudson-Odoi to Manchester but he failed to make the 18-man squad and was forced to watch the City defeat from the stands.
