Earlier this week Chelsea youngster Charly Musonda took to Instagram to express his frustration at not being utilised as he would have liked, as he has only played two games for Chelsea this season. The first being a cameo against Burnley on the league’s opening day and the second was the 5-1 win over Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup.

He wrote on Instagram: “You sacrifice, you work hard, harder, you give more than what’s expected, and often more than you can, because you love what you do and clearly more than you should. And what do you get back? Literally nothing,… done. However, with this being said I will continue with same dedication and commitment to this great game.”

The rant seemed very unprofessional but Chelsea boss has revealed that the youngster won’t be punished but rather he had been spoken to and he has learnt from his mistake.

Conte said in his press conference today: “Honestly I think above all with young players it is important to speak with him and try to explain which is the right way and I did this.

“I am sure he understood and I don’t see a problem with him. I repeat he must continue to work in the way he is doing and be focused on the pitch not social media because that is not the most important thing for him.”

Reports claim Musonda will now leave Stamford Bridge on loan in January, and Conte was asked about his future at the club.

The Chelsea boss said: “I think that the situation is we must be focused on the present also with him and the only thing I can tell is he is a talented player and I see him very well and he has a really good prospect to be an important player for Chelsea.

“He has to continue to work in this way and for sure the opportunity will come.”
