Chelsea exciting prospect, Charly Musonda has everything to celebrate. The attacking midfielder has been off the radar for some periods due to a niggling injury.
In his Instagram account, Charly Musonda posted about what transpired behind the scenes. The 24-year old Belgian admitted that he feared for his career after being told he has only a 20% chance of playing professional football again due to a posterior cruciate ligament injury.
He will spend an agonizing two years with the Chelsea rehabilitation center as he slowly built back his physical and mental fitness.
Charly Musonda will feature for Chelsea’s Under-23 after 760 days without football starting from August 2019. In the match against Liverpool Under-23 in the Premier League 2, Chelsea completed a comeback from two goals down.
Bryan Fiabema, George Nunn, Joe Haigh scored for Chelsea before Lewis Hall grabbed the winner for Andy Myers’ side, all in the space of 30 minutes.
Musonda joined Chelsea in 2012 from Anderlecht. He played for the youth team where he was impressive. He will find out that the path to Chelsea’s first-team is difficult prompting him to push for a loan move away from Chelsea.
Charly Musonda has had series of unsuccessful loan moves. He first moved to Real Betis in 2016 for a 6-month loan that was later extended to a year. He will move to Celtic in January 2018. The eighteen-month loan was canceled in May 2018 after just four months.
It was his last loan move to Vitesse in the Eredivisie that he got injured. The injury restricted him to just four games over the course of two seasons.
He will return to Chelsea where he was managed by the physio team at the Cobham training center.
Musonda is registered with Thomas Tuchel’s 23-man squad for the 2021/21 season. He will be hoping to put his injuries woes behind him.
