#5 Sarri slams Bayern
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has hit out Bayern Munich for their approach towards Callum Hudson-Odoi. The youngster has been linked with a move to the Bavarians, who have also been very vocal about wanting him.
This has not gone down well with the former Napoli boss as he has accused the German giants of not showing Chelsea the respect that a club deserves. The Italian believes that Bayern’s approach hasn’t been professional since the player is still under contract with the Blues.
"I think that it's not professional because they are talking about a player under contract at Chelsea," Sarri said.
"They didn't respect our club, I think. I don't know what to say, I do not know the situation.”
He then went on to praise the young star. Husdon-Odoi has been impressive whenever he has gotten the chance to display his skills on the pitch and Sarri has expressed his happiness at the way he is improving – especially in the defensive side of his game.
However, he also added that some work needs to be done on his off-the-ball movement.
"I am very, very happy with the player because the player is improving.
"He is improving a lot in the defensive phase and now he needs to improve in some movements without the ball.”
Finally, the Italian maestro expressed his desire for Hudson-Odoi to reject the German outfit and have him in his Chelsea team in the long term.
"He is working very well at the moment, so I am happy with the player and I would like to have him in the future."
