Charly Musonda hit the headlines this week following an Instagram rant which many assumed was aimed at Chelsea and Antonio Conte.

The 20-year-old Belgium winger has not featured in the Premier League since coming on as a substitute in the 91st minute on the first day of the season.

Musonda impressed on his full debut against Nottingham Forest last month, scoring a goal in the 5-1 Carabao Cup win.

However, Conte has not given him his chance in the Premier League and the player voiced his dissatisfaction on Instagram.

Musonda has since deleted the message which read as follows:

"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."


Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku, Nathan Ake, Dominic Solanke and Ryan Bertrand are just a few of the talented youngsters to leave Chelsea in order to get more playing time.

Chelsea's respond to Musonda

According to The Mirror, Chelsea have responded to the youngster who joined the club from Anderlecht all the way back in 2012.

Musonda has been told by the club to make his statements on the pitch as oppose to off it.

The Mirror claim that he has been advised to look at the examples of Andreas Christensen, Tammy Abraham and Ruben Loftus-Cheek for inspiration of how to break into the first team.

Out on season-long loans, Abraham and Loftus-Cheek are starters for Swansea and Crystal Palace respectively, whilst Danish defender Christensen has been given his chance in the first time following a two-year loan spell at Borussia Monchengladbach.

Musonda impressed during his loan spell at La Liga club Real Betis in the 2015/16 season but recent history suggests it was deemed insufficient for him to be given a shot in the first team at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking after Musonda's goalscoring display in the Cup, Conte suggested the talented youngster is still too lightweight for the Premier League.
