Former Zambia international Charles Musonda’s son, Charly, has broken the ranks at Chelsea FC where he has reportedly risen from the U-16 to the U-21 and now faces the prospects of lining up for the main team.
The 19-year-old Charly has reportedly been given the opportunity to train with the first team in the week leading up to Chelsea’s clash with Arsenal on Super Sunday after impressing in a 5-0 behind-closed-doors friendly win against QPR on Tuesday.
Chelsea’s youngsters have often found it difficult to progress into the main squad and the club currently has 29 players out on loan, but Musonda has been touted as one of the brightest prospects to come out of their academy in recent years.
Interim manager Guus Hiddink says he’s willing to give youth players a chance, so will Musonda be given an opportunity to be part of the 18-man squad – perhaps even as soon as this Sunday?
The son of a former Anderlecht midfielder and Zambian international, Musonda joined Chelsea from Anderlecht in the summer of 2012, along with his older brothers Tika and Lamisha.
Charles, FAZ President Kalusha Bwalya and Jonstone Bwalya were a combination to reckon with during their hey days when Zambia dominated the sport on the continent especially Southern Africa.
