Hudson-Odoi vs Sancho – Premier League legend gives verdict

Rio Ferdinand has given his opinion on Callum Hudson-Odoi and Jadon Sancho.

According to him, Hudson-Odoi needs consistency to be considered on the same level as Man United winger Jadon Sancho.

“Tantalising ball [for Ziyech’s goal], beautiful,” Ferdinand said on BT Sport about Hudson-Odoi’s assist in the Malmo game.

“That’s what you want from your winger and that’s what you’ve been waiting for and want to see on a consistent basis from Callum.

“We’ve heard about Callum since he came through the academy. Talking about who’s the better player, him or Sancho.

“He hasn’t lit it up like someone like Sancho, but if he does that the hype will be real.

“You’ve got to give him the benefit of doubt with the injuries too.”

Editorial Picks:

Sp far, the 20-year-old has made 10 appearances across all competitions for Chelsea so far this season, scoring a goal and providing two assists.

While Jadon Sancho hasn’t been particularly impressive at Man United (no goal involvements in 12 games this season) but his Dortmund record of 50 goals and 64 assists in 137 matches is insane.
