Sarri urges Chelsea youngsters to be patient amid transfer rumours

Maurizio Sarri has urged Chelsea youngsters Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ethan Ampadu to have a little patience despite being linked with moves away from the club.

Ampadu and Hudson-Odoi are two of the hottest properties to come through the Blues youth academy in recent years, with Ampadu already making his full international debut for Wales.

However, despite impressing at youth levels for Chelsea, neither player has been offered a significant opportunity to play for the West London club under Maurizio Sarri, prompting speculation that they could seek pastures new, with some suggestions saying that they could follow in the footsteps of Jadon Sancho and Reiss Nelson by moving to the Bundesliga.

However, Sarri has urged caution, saying that they wouldn’t be guaranteed any more game time elsewhere than is currently on offer at Stamford Bridge.

“For the Premier League, I don’t know. I don’t think that in Manchester City, Manchester United, other big teams, there are players who were born in the year 2000 with many minutes,” Sarri said ahead of tonight’s Europa League game against Vidi.

“To be in those clubs it is really very difficult. I hope in the future there will be a chance for Callum and also Ethan Ampadu.

“They have to improve every day physically and tactically. They are technically very good.”
