Chelsea winger Charly Musonda is finally back in training after undergoing a knee surgery almost one year ago.

The 23 year old, who is highly rated by the club, took to Instagram to express his happiness at finally returning to training.

He said: “Being on a pitch again for the first time in eight months feels great, the hard work continues…”

Musonda has struggled with injuries for the last two seasons.

“The last year has been the toughest of my life,” Musonda told The Independent a few months ago when he was unable to kick a football. “I’ve suffered a lot this year. Sometimes, it can get very lonely.

“Every morning I woke up with the same thought: to play. It’s only when it’s taken away that you understand how much you love football. I didn’t realise how much I could miss it.”

Here are some o the photos of his return to training:
