I prefer more-attacking positions for myself, says Chelsea’s Hudson-Odoi

Hudson Odoi and Tuchel

Callum Hudson-Odoi has said he’s prepared to continue playing at wing-back for Chelsea.

The 21-year-old has fulfilled a number of roles for Chelsea since manager Thomas Tuchel arrived at Stamford Bridge as our head coach just over a year ago, featuring in his natural position out wide in our attacking trio, as well as playing as a wing-back and even as an out-and-out striker in a front two on occasions recently.

“I’d definitely say I prefer more-attacking positions for myself, as a winger or a No.10 kind of player,” he told the club’s website.

“Obviously I like to be direct and try to create scoring opportunities for the team, hopefully try to score some myself. Playing in that position I’m more comfortable and I feel more free while playing there as well.

“So it’s definitely a nice position, to know that I can go out there, be myself, be free and try to create and score goals as well, but at the same time playing at wing-back is definitely more defensive. Your mentality is more about defending the goal than attacking the goal at times.

“In that position you always have to cover for somebody. For example, if the centre-back goes forward you have to cover in, just to make sure and be around. So it’s definitely a different position, definitely harder, so I’d say definitely an attacking position is what I prefer.”
