He recently revealed that they both made the right calls to stay because playing for Chelsea and Dortmund suits them better than Bayern Munich and Manchester United.
According to him, they still have a lot to learn in football and Sancho needs to keep proving himself at a club like BvB before finally stepping up.
He added that Odoi has to rebuild his confidence since his injury and Lampard’s coaching can give him that.
His words, “For two young players such as Hudson-Odoi and Sancho, with a long way to go and a lot to learn, I do believe they’re at the right clubs at this moment in time,”
“Of course it’s great to have a move lined up but unless you are an experienced top player, that move doesn’t mean you’ll be played; especially when it comes to a club like Manchester United.
“So for Sancho, I’d still like him to continue doing what he’s doing at his current club and to show that level of consistency before he actually moves. That, I believe, will set him up for a great career.
“As for Hudson-Odoi, I’m not surprised he is staying at Chelsea. In fact, I think, for such a young developing player who needs to rebuild his confidence since sustaining an Achilles injury, to remain at Chelsea is the best way for him to showcase that he’s up for the job and start playing for Chelsea regularly, along with being in England squad.
“But as for all players, especially for the younger ones, they have to work hard, really hard, every day to put themselves in the frame to start.
“Callum will get there but to allow him to find his way back following the injury, and the break caused by Covid, with a club he’s familiar with will do him good – at least for now.”
