Marcos Alonso doesn’t understand why team-mate Callum Hudson-Odoi would leave Chelsea for Bayern Munich and urged him to remain patient

Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic confirmed reports on Wednesday over their “great interest” in Hudson-Odoi.

The 18-year-old winger is understood to be frustrated with his role at Chelsea this season with just 42 minutes of Premier League action under his belt.

While Hudson-Odoi has started in both of the Blues’ last two games, in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup, he remains heavily tipped to make a move to Germany this month.

But Alonso feels that Hudson-Odoi won’t find a bigger club than Chelsea and urged his young team-mate to stick it out and fight for his place in the team.

“He needs to have patience and to be hungry and fight for a place in this team.

“That is all he needs to do, he has all the conditions to be a great player, now it is up to him to fight for a place here or try to find more minutes somewhere else.

“Bayern Munich? We are Chelsea, another great team, the Premier League is the most competitive league in the world, I don’t know why someone would go to Bayern Munich.”
