Hodson-odoi has admitted he was afraid he won’t start again after recovering from Achilles injury since April.
He explained his doubts when still on injury after he missed out on the remaining on last seasons league run, UEFA EUROPA league final and nations league.
The 18-year-old made a brilliant and impressive return, registering three assists and a goal in four matches only of which he started once.
“My first thought was if I could ever play again, I knew I’d do something serious so I was serious about it.
“I was encouraged by my family that I’d return to how I was. I’d sometimes go to training and see the boys running and you just want to be a part of that.
“When I got injured I was very angry because at that time, everything was working how I wanted it. I had dark days and same time happy ones. I’m happy to be fully back too”. Hodson-odoi said.
