#5 Robben’s advice to Hudson-Odoi
It seems as though the biggest saga of the winter award should go to Callum Hudson-Odoi and Bayern Munich. The Bavarians have been linked with the move for the talented Chelsea youngster and now, even Arjen Robben has something to say about it.
Robben, who was once a part of Chelsea Football Club, lauded the youngster as one of the best in his age group and urged him to take the chances that fall in his way.
“He is one of the best (young players) in Europe,” Robben said.
“You are better off getting your chance and if you get that chance then you have to take it.
The Dutchman then added that young players should always take their chance and make a place for themselves in the first-team.
“For young players, it’s always the same. First, you have to take the big step to achieve it.
“Become a professional football player at the highest level, get into the first team, get your place.”
The former Real Madrid star continued philosophical viewpoint as he stated that keeping your place in the main team is harder than earning it in the first place, which is why it is essential to prove oneself in every single game and never be content with what has been achieved.
“Then, second, which can be more important, what’s sometimes missing is that you have to stay there.
“Staying there is often more difficult than actually becoming a footballer in the first place.
“You have to prove it, game after game, season after season and don’t be happy. Don’t just be happy when you achieve something little or small.”
