Former Chelsea left back Graeme Le Saux has suggested that Charly Musonda may have to move on if he wants first team football.

The Belgian under 21 international spoke out on Instagram early last week about his lack of opportunities with the Blues, and speaking to the Daily Star, Le Saux even suggested that the 21 year old should try his luck at rivals Spurs:

“Unfortunately bringing youth through is not the Chelsea model at the moment. And a string of very good players have moved on from the club and now play at the very highest level in the Premier League.”

“Look at [Manchester City midfielder] Kevin De Bruyne and [Manchester United striker] Romelu Lukaku for two examples. The one club that does youth a chance is Tottenham. Maybe Musonda needs to move across London for his chance to shine?!”

Musonda was reportedly told to delete the post and apologise for the social media outburst by the club. The Blues gave the winger his debut in the Community Shield earlier this season.

The Belgian was then given his first start by manager Antonio Conte in the EFL Cup third round tie against Nottingham Forest in September. The player impressed by scoring in the 5-1 win.

Unlike some other Chelsea managers, Conte has given younger players a chance in the first team. The best example being Andreas Christensen who has already made ten appearances this campaign.
