Keown brands Chelsea boss 'stupid'
Former Arsenal player Martin Keown has branded Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri 'stupid' for benching youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi as the Blues crashed out of FA Cup.
Chelsea suffered a 2-0 defeat to Manchester United thanks to first-half goals from Ander Herrera and Paul Pobga. The Blues lacked the cutting edge, failing to test United's shot-stopper Sergio Romero but Sarri refused to introduce the youngster whom the club fought to keep during the January transfer window. Club supporters were not happy as Sarri brought Davide Zappacosta in place of Cezar Azpilicueta, a change Keown didn't welcome either.
"He’s [Hudson-Odoi] probably wondering, isn't he. I mean they’re two goals down and he’s put a defender on. Is it a politcal move from the manager because it’s a stupid one if it is," said Keown.
