Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri believes Callum Hudson-Odoi is not yet ready for the Premier League, despite being impressed with PAOK on Thursday.
Hudson-Odoi, 18, scored his first goal for the club, as Chelsea went on a 4-0 win in Euroleague, securing the top in the group L.
But Sarri feels that teens have to improve before they get a chance at the Premier League.
"I do not know if he is capable of the Premier League at 18, especially in the big team," he told the press conference.
"If he is already ready to make a difference in teams like Chelsea, he would be the best player in Europe in two years."

Chelsea finished a two-way winless run of victory over PAOK, which fell to 10 men in the seventh minute when Yevhen Khacheridi was dismissed.
Olivier Giroud won the first half and Alvaro Morata was also on the table looking for Chelsea.
But Sarri said the victory over the Greek suit little differed from his Sunday plan when his side hosted Fulham.
"In the last game, the problem was a team, not one or two players," he said.
"So, I think if there were two different players, that would be the same. A big problem was the team."
