Pep Guardiola Expresses Concern Over ‘Incredible’ Player Sold by Chelsea Last Summer

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has expressed concern about facing a former Chelsea player this weekend. 

He mentioned the former Blue directly in his pre-match press conference ahead of their crucial Premier League match this weekend, as the title race heats up.

A busy summer of signings at Stamford Bridge last year was aided by a number of key players leaving the club. 

Hudson-Odoi is having a fine individual season.

A number of these were part of Chelsea’s Champions League-winning squad in 2021, including winger Callum Hudson-Odoi. 

The England international has had arguably his best individual season in the Premier League since moving to Nottingham Forest, where things did not go as planned in West London. 

He has five Premier League goals this season and has frequently been the bright spot in a Forest side struggling at the bottom of the table. 

They will host City this weekend, with the outcome crucial to their chances of staying in the top flight.

Pep Guardiola says he is scared of Callum Hudson.-Odoi

Guardiola has mentioned Hudson-Odoi as someone he is concerned about for the match this weekend. 

He said: 

“Always the atmosphere is unbelievable [at Nottingham Forest]. Maybe extra in a relegation battle… But what I’m concerned is Hudson-Odoi, their strikers, weapons. We’re used to these environments and we’re going to try. They’re going to use their home ground, home people…”

Some of Chelsea’s current first-team players are well aware of his abilities, with Conor Gallagher describing him as ‘incredible’. 

Chelsea actually made a lot of changes in the wide attacking areas over the summer, with Christian Pulisic leaving permanently and Hakim Ziyech signing on loan. 

They are still waiting to see the best of Mykhailo Mudryk and Noni Madueke, but there is a lot of promise in what they can offer when given regular game time.
