'Bayern move would benefit Hudson-Odoi'
Former Tottenham and England midfielder Jermaine Jenas on BBC Radio 5 live"I think Callum Hudson-Odoi played well and I was impressed. He didn't particularly stand out but he is a young player in a good team and he did okay."When you do not play a lot you try and fit in rather than having a go at taking it on. The more he plays, he will start to take on the mantle of being the difference. He looked dangerous today and if he was given a target man he could have caused some problems."I think moving to Bayern Munich would be beneficial for him because I think this is just a phase with Maurizio Sarri and I do not believe he is going to be consistently playing."It seems Bayern Munich may have hit that magical number Chelsea were looking for for Hudson-Odoi. I still hope he stays at Chelsea and in the Premier League and we get to see the best of him week in and week out."I'm also of the opinion if Chelsea accept that bid it tells its own story and he should go out and seek first-team football at one of the giants of European football."The competition is fierce in his position at Chelsea. He has to get past Pedro, Willian and Eden Hazard. I don't think he warrants a starting position currently."
