Antonio Conte has hailed Charly Musonda’s talent and believes the winger can be successful at Chelsea.
The 20 year old is highly rated at Chelsea, despite only becoming a full first team in the summer. He was however made to wait a little while, before making his debut and it wasn’t until Wednesday’s Carabao cup game against Nottingham Forest that he featured for the first time in a competitive game for Chelsea first team.
The young winger didn’t disappoint, putting up a wonderful performance and also finding the back of the net.
Prior to his debut, Conte said: “With Charly, you can see very clearly his talent.
“Now it’s also important he’s working very well, trying to adapt himself to this league — because this league is not simple.
“He could play as a No 10, he could be a winger. Also, in the future, he could play as a wing-back.”
After Musonda’s debut, Conte didn’t hold back praises for the midfielder and urged him to continue building on the performance.
‘I think Charly played very well and he is trying to work a lot to improve physically because the Premier League is very strong in terms of the physical aspect,’ Conte said of Musonda’s debut.
‘He’s a talented player and he has to continue in this way and when there is the opportunity to help us he must do this.’
Chelsea fans will be keen to see Musonda more involved in the first team in the future. He is highly rated amongst the fans and that was evident when over 40,000 fans sang his name after he scored his first Chelsea goal.
