Football: 'Callum will get better' - Tuchel & Azpilicueta on Hudson-Odoi's reaction to being subbed

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel and captain Cesar Azpilicueta have praised the reaction of Callum Hudson-Odoi after his 31-minute substitute appearance during Saturday's 1-1 draw at Southampton. The England international was withdrawn in the 76th minute following his half-time introduction but will be part of the Blues travelling squad for their Champions League round of 16 first leg with Atletico Madrid on Tuesday. Coronavirus travel concerns mean the tie will be played in Bucharest, not Spain and Hudson-Odoi is in line to feature against the La Liga leaders. Azpilicueta echoed Tuchel's sentiments and backed the attacker to bounce back, ''obviously, it is not nice to come on and be subbed after 25 or 30 minutes. What was important was to see his reaction afterwards. A positive reaction.''
