Charly Musonda has been given a dressing down by the club after his latest Instagram post left everyone baffled.
The youngster, seemingly irritated by the lack of opportunities provided to him went on an astonishing rant along with a cryptic image on Instagram.
Belgium forward Musonda, who has remained with Chelsea this term after an underwhelming spell at Real Betis, on Monday night, posted a cryptic message on Instagram alongside a blank image.
The accompanying message was deleted on Tuesday, but the blank image remained.
The post read: ‘You sacrifice, you work hard, harder, you give more than what’s expected, and often more than you can because you love what you do and clearly more than you should. And what do you get back? Literally nothing… done.
‘However, with this being said I will continue with same dedication and commitment to this great game.’
Some interpreted the post as a criticism of Chelsea and head coach Antonio Conte, but Musonda has denied that was the case.
Musonda impressed in his first full start for the Club in the Carabao cup 3rd round tie against Nottingham Forest. The 20-year-old Belgian scored with a beautiful finish and his goal celebration, later on, showed what it meant to him. The Chelsea fans were emotional as well to see the kid who joined them as 12-year-old.
However, Antonio Conte demands so much even of his established players and Musonda will be no exception as he has received no guarantees about his role at the club.
Conte praised Musonda following the Forest win but said the slight Belgian has work to do to be ready for the rigours of the Premier League.
The Blues boss said on September 20: ‘I think Charly played very well. He’s trying to work a lot to improve his physical impact.
‘He’s a talented player and he has to continue in this way. When there is the opportunity, the chance, to help us, he must do this.’
Musonda was told after his rant by Chelsea to follow the examples of Andreas Christensen, Tammy Abraham, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
The Danish defender, Christensen has been in and out of the first team and has impressed a lot in the chances provided so far. He returned after an extremely successful 2-year-spell in the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach where he was named player of the year at the ripe age of 20.
Loftus-Cheek and Tammy have also gone away from Stamford Bridge on loan’s to Crystal Palace and Swansea in order to make a name for themselves and try to break into the scheme of things at Chelsea.
Musonda’s views, however, will resonate with a lot of the Blues’ fans who will definitely feel the pain of having to see so many young talents having to leave the club due to lack of opportunities.
They can only hope that the club won’t let Musonda slip away like many others have.
