Former England midfielder Jamie Redknapp has urged Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri to find a quick solution to Callum Hudson-Odoi's playing time frustrations.

Hudson-Odoi, 18, opened his scoring account for the Blues last Thursday in their 4-0 win over PAOK in the Europa League.

However, he was left out of manager Sarri's squad entirely for Sunday's win over Fulham and Redknapp thinks such decisions will frustrate the 18-year-old forward.

"It was a shame not to see Callum Hudson-Odoi at least on the bench for Chelsea. This kid is the next superstar," he told the Daily Mail.

"He is full of confidence, loves to run at defenders and capped a brilliant display against PAOK with his first senior goal. He also took the time last week to meet Chelsea's Under 10s."

"Maurizio Sarri simply has to find a way to give him more minutes. Jadon Sancho has set a precedent.

"Young players are willing to move abroad to play and Chelsea risk losing someone special."

The youngster has recently been linked with Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.
