21-year-old wonder kid, Charly Musonda, who joined Celtic on an 18-month loan in January and featured in eight matches this season is looking set to return to Stamford Bridge.
Celtic manager, Brendan Rodgers confirmed on Thursday that the midfielder has returned to Chelsea as he decided to cut short his stay in Glasgow to go back to London.
Rodgers told BBC Sports;
“He was a joy to work with, wanted to learn, but he’s at the age where he needs to be playing week-in, week-out and unfortunately I couldn’t promise him that. I met with Chelsea on Monday. Charly’s contract was set in that there was a review at the end of the season, whether they wanted to take him back. The idea for Charly to come out [on loan] was to play as many games as he possibly could.”
He further noted;
“Between us both we were thinking he may not get the games that they would like him to get for next season. My job when I bring in young players is to give them the environment, and hopefully give them as much game time as I possibly can. If that doesn’t happen then of course we don’t own the player. He’s a terrific young player. I think the level the team has been playing at has been difficult at times for Charly to get in. But there’s no doubt he’s a talent and I’m sure next year he’ll go on and hopefully get the games that he wants.”
