Charly Musonda was touted as a wonderkid during his teenage years and it was expected that the Belgian would have been one of the best players in the world by now.

Blessed with skills and talent, injury has never let Musonda reach the heights he was destined for.

Since 2016, Musonda has been plagued by a cruciate ligament issue in his knee which has denied him the chance of fulfilling his potential.

Musonda is pushing to revive his career and has revealed how doctors told him the chances of playing again were slim.

Musonda took to Instagram to reveal the heartbreak he suffered during the past few years.

Musonda said: “It’s been four years since I played back to back professional games, three years since I last played for my club, two of those last four years, I’ve been injured with the post cruciate ligament of my knee.

“Nothing but heartbreak and heartache. Doctors told me going through surgery after being out for so long would be the end, an impossible mountain to climb, were the exact words.

“I miss football so much, to say the least, and I’m doing everything I can to play once again, to all the kids out there who have a dream and are injured or are going through monumental setbacks, never give up!

“I’ll keep climbing the insurmountable mountain everyday to run with the football once again, because there’s no better feeling than taking someone on and feeling alive.

“Until that day comes I’ll keep training and believing in the impossible comeback, because the greatest comebacks always seem like there is no way back, and that’s when we’ve got to dig deep and live to tell the story and not die in it.

“#ThisIsMyStory and how I keep training and staying ready, despite the odds, that one day I’ll be back.”

Musonda still has two years left on his contract with Chelsea.

  1. I think he should consider going in africa , to seek traditional heeling .
    Some country in africa are good with these kind of injuries .
    All the best for him.

    My guy never lose hope God is able turn around your life is mercy full always he doesn’t want us to see us in painful situations hope in God because he is healer if only doctors work with God this world would be better place. Chelsea is my favorite team.

  3. God is ever alive and his hand is not short that it can not heal. God can he will heal you. TB Joshua is also very much alive and God can use heal to heal you.
    I watched one young Manchester football ball who visited SCOAN for healing and was healed. You can do the same as well.
    Charley Musonda we miss your skills. May God heal you in Jesus name
