Ghana's No. 1

Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi returns to Ghana for holidays

Published on: 24 January 2022

Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has decided to spend his short holidays in Ghana with the Premier League on break.

Chelsea are not in action until February 5 when they host Plymouth Argyle in the FA Cup fourth round.

“Back to Ghana for a little break! See you soon,” the England-born forward announced on Twitter.


This is Hudson-Odoi second visit to his native country. Hudson-Odoi spent his summer holidays in the West African country last year after a successful 2020/21 campaign that saw Chelsea crowned European champions.

Hudson-Odoi got a warm reception.

He interacted with fans after featuring in a community football match in Nungua, a town in Ghana's capital, Accra.

Also, the young attacker met Ghana President Akufo-Addo at the Jubilee House in Accra. The Ghanaian leader ordered Minister for Youth and Sports to explore the possibility of having Hudson-Odoi switch nationality to play for the Black Stars.

The 21-year-old watched his father’s former club Hearts of Oak play city rivals Great Olympics in the Ghana Premier League at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Hearts of Oak fans presented Hudson-Odoi with a customised jersey during the match. 

Hudson-Odoi has eight goal contributions (three goals and five assists) in 25 games this season.
