Chelsea youngster Charly Musonda has left Chelsea to join Vitesse Arnhem on loan for the entire 2019/20 season.
The past footballing year has been a tough one for Musonda. After a failed loan spell at Real Betis (which started with a promising first six months) and then an even poorer loan at Celtic, the worst was yet to follow. Just a few days after arriving at Vitesse last year, after spending pre-season with Chelsea, Musonda picked up a knee injury which would eventually rule him out for the entire 2018-19 season.
Musonda has been a highly rated player having joined the club from Anderlecht to be part of the Blues academy.
The young Belgian is yet to fulfil his potential and his career hasn’t been helped by injuries.
Ahead of the new season, Musonda has revealed that his major objective is to have fun on the pitch next season.
“It was a very difficult period. Because of that knee injury, I didn’t get a chance to play for Vitesse. [But] Vitesse really wanted me back and that’s why it made sense for me and an easy return.”
“I feel fit to play. 10% [of fitness] has to be added, but that can only be done by playing matches. If I can just train with the group and play matches, then it is already very good. I want as much as possible of course win games, but first [I have to] find the fun on the field.”
