Charly Musonda
Zambian Football’s legend Charles Musonda’s son Charly Musonda jr’s career has taken a rapid dive.

Like many Chelsea academy players, a lot of hope came with his development.

He was linked with French giants Monaco and Marseille as a 18 year-old after impressing in Chelsea’s UEFA Youth League and FA Youth Cup winning campaigns.

Musonda decided to stay and try to force himself into the first-team amid this interest.
He didn’t make an appearance in the 2015-16 season and therefore asked to leave in January to get game-time.

Musonda joined Real Betis in January and played well enough for them to extend that loan for another season.

But under new manager Gus Poyet, Musonda again struggled and eventually his loan was terminated.

Musonda again didn’t have any chances at Chelsea and went to Celtic with a 18-month loan deal agreed.

However, his time in Scotland was a disaster as he barely saw the Parkhead pitch.

As a result, Musonda sought an exit so terminated his own loan contract just four months after joining.
