Tuchel wants me to be direct - Hudson-Odoi

Tuchel wants me to be direct - Hudson-Odoi

Chelsea man of the man against Wolves Hudson-Odoi has revealed what new club manager Thomas Tuchel wants from him going forward.

Hudson-odoi was Chelsea's best player on the field in Thomas Tuchel's first game as the club's manager. The 20-year-old played the wing-back position and was brilliant in every of his touches and pass.

The game ended in a 0-0 draw but there was also positivity to take from the game since it was only Tuchel's second day at the club. Speaking with Chelsea's official website after the game, Odoi revealed what the former PSG coach wanted from him and what he think's about the position.

‘He wants me to be as direct and to keep getting at full-backs and defenders as much as possible,' Odoi said

‘He knows all the attacking players can be free and score goals and he wants us to be direct and keep pushing and try to get goals and get assists. He told me to work up and down that line, be direct and stay as high and wide as possible.

‘I try to break the line and keep doing different movements to get the ball. He wants us to keep going in behind and find good passes, find different ways of breaking teams instead of trying to beat them every time with the ball.

’I felt really fit throughout the whole game, I felt really sharp, trying to be direct as much as possible and trying to get at my defender as much as possible, and I feel as a collective we did really well.

‘We were working hard, trying to break their back five as quick as possible. At times it was very difficult. When we were getting behind them they were recovering so well it was hard to make that extra pass to break it.

‘I think we have to be more clinical with our crossing and more clinical with our passing. End product just to finish it off. We can hopefully improve on it on Sunday.’

Hudson-Odoi also revealed what the new coach told the team at half-time of the game.

‘At half-time, he told us to keep the same mentality and to keep what we were doing because we were playing really well, working really hard and the intensity of the game was really high for us. So we have to keep pushing and keep pushing and to try to come out with the same mentality and the same intensity and try to get the goal,' He added

‘From the start, he said just go out there and play with aggression and intensity, and you could see on the pitch that we did that and we were unfortunate not to get that goal.

‘I felt that it was a game we deserved to win, we had the right mentality from the start. We will reflect on it and try to be more clinical in front of goal.’
