Maurizio Sarri: Too much pressure 'dangerous' for Hudson-Odoi

Premier League giants Chelsea coast to 3-0 victory over Ukrainian topflight side Dynamo Kyiv in the first leg of their Europa League clash at the Stamford Bridge on Thursday evening.

The 18-year-old is fast becoming a cult figure at the club.

"You can lose the target". When you're 18 the target is to improve tactically, mentally and physically. "We started with 130 minutes in the Carabao Cup final so it was a very hard and we need to consider this situation very well and we may need to rest some players", said Sarri. So I now think we need to improve without the pressure of the media, without the pressure of the fans, without the pressure of the club.

That argument could rage forever, but the side issue of his use of young players could united both sides of the fanbase against him very quickly.

"It's unsafe for him".

Despite handing in a transfer request in January, Hudson-Odoi revealed he is delighted to be a Chelsea player and will work his way into the first team. "I don't like to speak about him for this reason".

The Blues are looking to keep up their bid to finish in the top four this season as they seek Champions League qualification under Maurizio Sarri.

"We have to go there with a good level of application and determination if we want to qualify", Sarri added. I think that in England he is the only (player born in) 2000 with 16 matches in the first team. The Blues are now in a run of two successive wins and manager Maurizio Sarri will be hoping for another strong showing against Kiev to enhance the team's prospects of reaching the quarter-final phase of the competition. That is important and then he will be able to be at the top when he is 22, 23.

"So the result is OK now".
