[Hudson-Odoi speaks after his first senior team start with England’s senior tea] I don’t think discrimination should be anywhere. We’re equal and we have to play a fair game. That should never happen in football. Everyone should just be enjoying the game. It’s unacceptable

[Callum Hudson-Odoi talks about where he cut his teeth as a footballer, citing England’s win at the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017 as a formative experience] India put on a party for that World Cup. You’ve never seen football like it. That World Cup had sellout crowds - like proper sellout. I’m talking 60,000 in a stadium to watch teenagers kick ball. India is amazing. They love football so much, and I hope we can run that tournament back one day for the senior teams

[Callum Hudson-Odoi thanks Chelsea fans and team-mates for support during coronavirus battle] I would like to say to them thank you for all the support that you have shown. They have been so encouraging and making sure that I have been okay. Thank you for that but also, I can’t wait to be back playing on that pitch again. I am fully fit, I am feeling great, I am feeling perfect. I have no injuries so right now I can’t wait to be back on the pitch and showing again what I am capable of

[On his battle with coronavirus] I had the virus which has cleared now. I fully feel good, I feel fit, so I am feeling back to myself so it is all good. I had it [the illness] three weeks ago now I think, on a Monday when I felt a bit hot and I was thinking this is a bit unusual, why do I feel this hot. The next day I was feeling back to normal. I thought it was just a minor temperature thing, but obviously it wasn’t. I said to myself this wasn’t actually that bad, the symptoms, and I said to myself I feel good, I feel better

[Hudson-Odoi insisted he had the full support of his Chelsea team-mates during his battle with COVID-19] Everyone has been asking me how I have been which has been class from them. They have been showing me support and saying Cal, get well soon, I hope you are okay now. It has been very warming and a good feeling to know you have got your team-mates behind you, backing you and making sure you are feeling well and encouraging you

[Callum Hudson-Odoi explains how he is maintaining his fitness amid Premier League suspension] Recently I’ve been working [from] 10-10:30 and then going straight downstairs to do a bit of bike, 10 seconds pushing myself really hard and maybe 10 seconds resting and then another 10 seconds again

I’ve been doing a lot of upper body and core work just to make sure I’m still staying active and ready so it’s a lot and it’s good. To be fair, for me, I like late-night runs. I don’t know why I like the late-night ones. It’s just everywhere is quiet and you go and do your thing and come back home.

[Despite going on runs outside, the Chelsea man is taking social distancing seriously] Everyone I see I’m dodging straight away. I’m ducking and diving and running away just to make sure

[Hudson-Odoi eager to link up with England team-mate at Stamford Bridge] Me and Sancho are mad close, we talk every other day, always seeing how each other are and how we’re doing. We make sure that we’re both doing well, obviously he’s doing amazing and having a great season. We’re always making sure each other is good. Obviously he’s a great player, I love playing with him - he’s a great player to play with. For England as well we’ve played all the way through the ages so the link-up has always been there. I played against him sometimes in the Youth Cup games or we would play with each other for England, the link-up has always been there and we’ve always loved playing with each other. The way we play with each other we just know where each other is on the pitch every time and we just love to play with each other. I don’t know [if he’ll come]. Of course, I would love it if he came to Chelsea. We’ve had a great partnership throughout, the way we play with each other is amazing. If he came, the link-up will still be there.

[Callum Hudson-Odoi says he knew Frank Lampard would make a good manager] I always thought to myself that he would be a good manager because of the way he used to lead on the pitch when he was playing. You could tell that he demanded a lot from the players he was playing with. It’s an amazing feeling to know that an ex-player, an ex-legend, has come back to the club and has the opportunity to work for the club, and we’re working under him. Every day we want to learn and keep improving. Obviously, he knows all about becoming a top player so you want to learn under him and maybe one day become a Chelsea legend yourself!

Jody Morris has a great bond with the Academy, he knows all the players and all the staff over there. I think he knows when they’re ready to come up and when they’re ready to train and be involved. He’s helped bring all the players up and he’s made everybody aware that if you’re doing well and working hard in training then you’ll get the opportunity to play. It gives you a special feeling to work extra hard because you want to be playing in games, you want to be playing in any match possible. You just have the feeling that if Jody’s there, he’s going to try and push the young players to come up

[Hudson-Odoi had said that he felt perfect, having only experienced minor symptoms] I had the virus, which has cleared now.

I said to myself this wasn’t actually that bad, the symptoms, and I said to myself, ‘I feel good, I feel better.’ Everything is happening so fast and I did not know this virus would be such a major thing and so big in the world and affect so many people. Everyone has to be careful and judge things how they go and hopefully the virus will go soon and everyone will be back to normal
