England boss Gareth Southgate has also been in touch with the player.

After the Montenegro win, which was Hudson-Odoi’s full England debut, the winger described the abuse – also targeting Danny Rose and Raheem Sterling – as “unacceptable”.

The youngster is understood to be faring well since then but will be offered a range of support if he needs it.

However, the European football governing body, Uefa has its investigation on the alleged racial abuse chant against the Ghanaian-born sensation.

UEFA said “disciplinary proceedings” had been opened against Montenegro with one charge for “racist behaviour”.

Hudson-Odoi said after the Euro 2020 qualifier: “When you are hearing stuff like that from the fans, it is not right and it is unacceptable. Hopefully, Uefa deals with it properly.

“When I and Rosey went over there, they were saying ‘ooh aa’ monkey stuff – we just have to keep our heads and keep a strong mentality.”

England boss Gareth Southgate said: “We have to make sure our players feel supported, they know the dressing room is there and we as a group of staff are there for them.”

Chelsea is next in action at Cardiff City on Sunday as the Premier League returns after the international break.
