He’s a good boy.

In the future, he, Ruben and Andreas [Christensen] can become top players.‘The future could be good.’”It was a bit of a fluke!” 😉Ruben Loftus-Cheek says that him and Callum Hudson-Odoi have spent years of hard work to start in a Premier League game together.Report and highlights as #CFC continue their 100-per-cent league record against #BHAFC 👉 https://t.co/vdmtOxAS7y pic.twitter.com/EpbVjOqAQB— Sky Sports Premier League (@SkySportsPL) April 3, 2019 Maurizio Sarri reveals how he mocked Callum Hudson-Odoi after Chelsea’s victory over Brighton Advertisementlast_img read more
