Callum Hudson-Odoi sends message to Thomas Tuchel over touchline actions
Callum Hudson-Odoi has sent a message to Thomas Tuchel over his actions on the touchline during games.
The German has now been in charge of Chelsea for over a year, winning three cups, including the Champions League.
So, it is fair to say that whatever Tuchel is doing at Chelsea, it is working to some extent.
And when speaking about his manager recently, Hudson-Odoi did stated that tactically, he is amazing:
“The manager is a very good guy, tactically he’s amazing,” Hudson-Odoi told the Daily Mail before Chelsea’s Carabao Cup final defeat to Liverpool.”
However, Hudson-Odoi has also suggested that Tuchel shouts too much on the touchline and urged him to quieten down a little bit: “He knows how to get the best out of each player, sometimes it might be in a way that you don’t want to hear it or he might be shouting in a way that you think: ‘Why are you shouting so much on the touchline?’
“At the same time, he wants what is best for the team. Sometimes it’s hard to understand and you think to yourself: ‘Can you calm down a little bit and stop shouting as much?’
“He’s trying to get a message across and make it clear to you that: ‘Listen, I want this from you because I want to win the game. I’m not just going to shout at you, I’ll shout at everybody to make sure we get the best out of everybody, and we win the game. Or get the 100 per cent out of everybody’.
“It’s definitely a different sort of manager compared to the others ones I’ve been under. He’s always on his toes, always up and ready to make a gesture or talk. Just very vocal. “It’s good on the pitch but sometimes it’s like: ‘Can you quieten down a little bit, not shout as much?’ But it’s OK.”
Hudson-Odoi not used in League Cup final
There would be no shouting in Hudson-Odoi’s direction for Chelsea’s last clash anyway as he did not make it off the bench.
Chelsea played out the 2022 League Cup final vs Liverpool on Sunday, losing on penalties.
And despite Chelsea having five subs available to them, Hudson-Odoi was not brought on.
