Callum Hudson-Odoi has admitted that Frank Lampard has given Chelsea FC a “massive boost” following his appointment at Stamford Bridge in the summer.

Lampard was brought in to replace Maurizio Sarri back in July after the Italian opted to return to Serie A with Juventus after just one season in charge.

The former England midfielder has been earning lots of praise for the impact he has had at Stamford Bridge this season, with the ex-Chelsea FC star placing his faith in youth and helping the Blues to challenge for a top-four finish.

Lampard has been giving the likes of Hudson-Odoi and Tammy Abraham their chance to shine in the Chelsea FC team this season.

And teenager Hudson-Odoi admits that it has been a big boost for the Blues to be coached by such a successful former player.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports before Chelsea FC’s clash with Watford on Saturday, Hudson-Odoi said: “It’s been a massive boost for the club.

“It’s given us the great belief and respect for him that he’s done it here, and he knows what it is to be a top player.

“We’ve all been learning off him; I’ve had a few chats with him about getting into better positions on the pitch, always trying to improve myself in training and on the pitch.

“It has given us the belief that we can achieve big things at this club.”

Hudson-Odoi will be hoping to feature for Chelsea FC when the Blues return to Champions League action on Tuesday night with a home clash against Ajax.

The Blues will return to Premier League action next weekend when they take on Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on Saturday 9 November.
