Callum Hudson-Odoi’s first month on loan at Bayer Leverkusen has been quite successful. He has started four of the team’s five games, contributed an assist, and helped the team improve after a shaky start to the season.
Therefore, he is not very concerned about what may occur in a few months or at the end of the season, or when he will return to Chelsea. Recent sources claimed that Graham Potter may recall the 21-year-old in January, but that is a) premature talk at the moment and b) not a positive thing if it does occur (if Callum is suffering, that’s not good, and if he’s performing well, why disrupt that?).
And after a 2022 marred by injury and bench time, the talented winger is currently simply enjoying his sport. Indeed, there is no need to concentrate on anything else.
“At the end of the day it’s not up to me. I can only do what I can do now for the club and push myself to the max here and give everything I can. We don’t know what will happen from now to the end of the season. Right now I’m just focusing on playing as much football as possible and trying to help the team.”
“Coming out here, my aim was to get as many games as possible and build on the fitness that I haven’t really had in the past couple of seasons for Chelsea. I think game wise, I’ve been playing a lot here and I’m really enjoying it.
“You want to enjoy every minute of it, you want to be trying to help the team as much as possible, scoring goals and assisting goals. Even if it’s not scoring goals, it’s just being influential in the team. I’m definitely enjoying my football at the moment and I think it was the right move at the right time of my career to come here.”
