Nottingham Forest condemn 'concerning chants' aimed at Chelsea fans and  promise 'investigation' after Premier League draw | talkSPORT

Jimmy Floyd-Hasselbaink thinks Nottingham Forest have signed a gem in Callum Hudson-Odoi. The youngster was added to the City Ground ranks from Chelsea in the summer.

The 22-year-old will hope to get his career back on track after stagnating in recent years. He’s made a promising start to life at Forest and Hudson-Odoi has worked with Steve Cooper before.

Hasselbaink obviously has an affiliation with Chelsea having spent time there as a player. He was quizzed on Hudson-Odoi over the weekend now that he’s signed for Forest.

Hasselbaink hopes Hudson-Odoi can kick on at Forest

The pundit was part of the coverage as Forest drew 1-1 with Brentford on Sunday. Michael Dawson was alongside him and it was Hasselbaink who chose to comment on Hudson-Odoi.

He hopes that Hudson-Odoi can now kick on at the Forest after a failed couple of years at Chelsea. The talent is there with the forward but he just needs a break or two to fall his way.

“He likes to get into the one-on-one positions. When he’s one v one we know he can do a lot of damage.

“We saw against Burnley that he likes to shoot at goal and we want to see that more.

“He came up with a bit of quality in that game and a moment of brilliance.

Hudson-Odoi can thrive under Cooper

The man signed from Chelsea has been decent in the games he’s played so far at Forest. It was a shame that he had to come off when the Reds went down to 10 men on Sunday.

Hudson-Odoi quite simply needs to play games on a frequent basis. By doing that he will start to look sharper, quicker and will ultimately make more an impact at the club.

Cooper is the right manager for the player at this stage of his career. Hudson-Odoi could seriously thrive under his influence at Forest and hopefully, he can stay fit and remain in the team.
