It is now four years since Musonda was able to play back-to-back games, and he has made just four substitute appearances since that ill-fated tackle.
It is just a nine-week countdown to 2021/2022 Premier League season.
The 24-year-old Charly Musonda hasn’t kicked a ball for the Blues first team since January 2018, due to several loans and awful injury luck.
However, Musonda had been working hard towards his fitness, and recent reports revealed that the 24-year-old is already back in the training at the Cobham training centre.
Charly Musonda also shared his excitement weeks ago for the start of pre-season whilst uploading a video via his Instagram with a caption: “Back on the field, Driving An Impossible comeback one day at a time.”
‘I’m on the right track’. Musonda spoke on Football Focus
“It’s very difficult to have three years without being able to do what you really love,” he says. “I would be lying to say that it’s been easy, but I’ve always known that some struggles are worth going through.
“I feel like a fighter now preparing for a boxing match. It would be an incredible comeback – an incredible story. Every day is part of the journey, every day a step closer to coming back. I’m on the right track.
“I do believe that if I put a run together and I come back, I can play for a good 10 years. I’m still 24 – if I come back in the prime of my career, I can put a run together – that’s my goal.”
While Musonda’s career has stalled, several of his academy team-mates have progressed to the Chelsea first team – including Tammy Abraham, Reece James and Mason Mount.
“I know how hard it is, so I’m really proud of them,” he says. “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.”
Fortunately, looks like he has regain his fitness and will hope to break into Thomas Tuchel team. The fans have found it impressive as they wanted nothing more than to see Musonda succeed at Stamford Bridge.
