As a result of a persisting knee injury, Charly Musonda Jr, who was once rated among the top talents in world football, has only played 20 games since the start of the 2016-17 season.
Speaking to Nieuwsblad.be, the 24-year-old opened up on his struggles with injury after making a sensational comeback; “Since I had been out for more than a year, they gave me a 20 percent chance of ever playing at the top level again. They literally said: this is going to be an impossible mountain to climb.
“It was a struggle. For three years I missed what I love most: playing football. I was in pain and sometimes didn’t sleep, but a comeback is only heroic when no one thinks it possible.
“I’m on the right track. I do believe I have ten more beautiful years in my legs when I return. I feel like a boxer getting ready for his ultimate fight.”
It’s been an extremely heartbreaking journey for the talented footballer, who has gone through hell over the last few seasons. However, he is now back in training for Chelsea and we can’t wait to see how he returns on the field.
We wish Musonda all the best and we’re sure that through hard work, he will get back to the heights he could have reached in his career!
