Charly Musonda has been in the spotlight recently, not for his impressive footballing skills, but for his recent comments which were targeted at the Chelsea management.
The 21-year-old is one of Chelsea’s most promising young talents as his track record shows, and appears tired of life on ‘the sidelines’, instead of the pitch, as he took to his social media to express his feelings about the situation.
Taking to his Instagram account, Musonda posted the following, “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.”
Quite bold for a young man who’s trying to get himself noticed, you might agree, but doesn’t he have a point? Chelsea over the years, has turned into a club for ‘already made’ products. Talented payers who are not big names no longer get a Chance to showcase their stuff, and it has continued to hurt our reputation in the market for young talents. I mean, why go to a club where you aren’t guaranteed playing time?
I can understand the need to have the finest legs play, so you win trophies, however, you have to agree that nobody becomes great in a day. Ronaldo and Messi too started somewhere. Players need to get quality playing time in order to mature and get better.
Musonda might have gone about making his point wrongly because he could have ruined his career with it, but he definitely made a valid point. I have watched the lad play, so I know he’s a fine talent. Now, why not give him a shot?
Hopefully, as promised, he’ll get his chance against Everton, and he’ll once again remind everyone of his wonderful talent.
We have already lost some fine players because of our youth policy. We need to change that if we’re to keep growing as a club.
