Chelsea young star Charly Musonda has finally returned to the pitch for the first time in two years after a long rehabilitation process.
The 24-year-old was a happy man as he expressed his delight at returning to the pitch to play his first game in two years following injury.
Musonda lasted just over an hour for the Chelsea U23s as the Blues defeated Liverpool U23s 4-3 in the Premier League 2 on Saturday.
Musonda was signed to the Chelsea academy as a buzzing teenager back in 2012 with lots of expectations, but he has been unable to make it to the squad.
Musonda had since struggled to break into the first team, after just three senior appearances for the Blues.
His loan spells has has mixed success, and at the start of the 2019/20 season, Musonda was loaned out to Vitesse but just a week into his stay at the Dutch side he suffered a posterior cruciate ligament injury that has ruled him out of action ever since.
Following his return to action, a delighted Musonda took to social media to express his delight, as he wrote: “For the first time in over two years, I’m back on the field.
“Proud of this achievement after a couple years of rehab, exhausting hard work both physically and mentally to be in this position, nerves, rustiness, but all in all unbelievable feeling to play once again.
“This is just the beginning, the comeback continues.”
