According to goal reports, Chelsea coach Frank Lampard talked about the team's 19-year-old Odoi in an official interview with the club and said that he has high hopes for his future.
Odoi completed his first start at Chelsea in a 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace. Earlier, Chelsea rejected Bayern's pursuit of Odoi. The latter intends to rent first and then buy Odoi, with a buyout clause of up to £70 million.
In the interview, the reporter asked Lampard to compare Odoi and William. Lampard said: "I will not compare him with William. They have their own characteristics and are not the same type of player."
"For Odoi, in order to get him a foothold in the league, we also need to improve his ability without the ball. You can see our performance last season, and William was the initiator of the team's counter-grab. , His coverage in the frontcourt is very wide, and the speed of stealing is very fast. Today's wingers need to have this ability. This is what I need Odoi to do. He has improved a bit, but can do more it is good."
"Odoi's ability to hold the ball is very strong. As he continues to improve, his characteristics will become more distinctive. I know he suffered an injury when he was a child. For people like him who rely on speed, disguise and explosive power to play, The recovery process must be difficult. This season, I believe he will use his talents to bring us more."
