Rudiger reveals why Hudson-Odoi rejected Bayern Munich move

Antonio Rudiger has revealed that Callum Hudson-Odoi asked him about a move to Bayern Munich and believes Eden Hazard’s exit last summer played a key role in persuading the player to stay at Chelsea.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has made good on his promise to utilise the club academy with Hudson-Odoi playing 22 times since returning from an Achilles injury in September.
