Thomas Tuchel Breaks Silence On Callum Hudson-Odoi New Position

Hudson-Odoi came on as a replacement for Timo Werner but was shockingly seen playing the right wing

It could be easily seen on Wednesday night Tuchel immediately changed his formation when Timo Werner got injured.

Werner’s injury was greatly felt because Lukaku has already left the pitch through injury too and replaced by Havertz.

So not having Timo Werner and no other striker on the bench only meant Havertz as the only number 9.

Tuchel’s best option was that which he took and brought in Callum Hudson-Odoi but had to use the Ghanaian as a left wing instead of his the right wing he has always played since Tuchel came.

Well, the German manager appeared not surprised Callum Hudson-Odoi booked an assist cause he clearly admitted the wing is Calli’s natural wing but he do use him as a right wing back cause of tactical issues.

‚ÄúThis is his best position [left wing] but sometimes he needs to help as a right wing-back,” Tuchel said of Calli playing as a left wing on Wednesday night.

” He needs to take it for the team but we know the left position up front is his best position.”

Both Lukaku and Werner will be out for at least 4 weeks, although it isn’t confirmed how long Werner will actually be out for but due to Lukaku’s speculation so it’s assumed same for Werner.
