​Ex-Chelsea boss Hurst: Easy decision for Hudson-Odoi

Former Chelsea boss and England legend Sir Geoff Hurst believes that Callum Hudson-Odoi faces an easy decision on his future.

Much has been made about Hudson-Odoi wanting to leave the club, with Bayern Munich showing the most concrete interest.

The young winger is not happy at his lack of game time at Stamford Bridge. And Hurst believes it is an easy decision for him to leave.

"In terms of Hudson-Odoi being linked with Bayern Munich, it makes sense and I'd look at it and think it's an easy decision for him to make," he told GrosvenorSport.com.

"If he's playing for Bayern Munich and does well there, I think he'll give himself a better chance of becoming a regular for England than if he stays with Chelsea.

"Chelsea aren't developing English players, given the amount they have got and the number who leave on loan and don't get opportunities.

"It would be a lesson learnt again for rich English clubs like Chelsea if a player like Callum rejected their contract offer and moved elsewhere.

"But first and foremost, I really hope he does well for England and fingers crossed he can start off his international career in the best possible way – with a win and a good performance."
