Charly Musonda was signed to the Chelsea academy at age 15, and grew up with the likes of Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Fikayo Tomori.
Musonda was touted to have a great future in the game, but injury has so far prevented him from progressing. Meanwhile, his academy mates are doing great things and he has watched on to see the likes of Mason Mount and Reece James break into the first team.
Musonda has revealed that he’s happy for them and hopes to play with them, as he vows to also fight his way back from injury.
“I know how hard it is, so I’m really proud of them,” he said.
“Seeing people you’ve grown up with doing so well, you can only be happy. Hopefully, I’ll be able to one day train and play with them again.”
Musonda is still contracted to Chelsea and his contract with the club will run out in the summer of 2022.
