Charly Musonda Admits Adapting to Life at Celtic Has Been ‘Really Hard’

Charly Musonda Admits Adapting to Life at Celtic Has Been ‘Really Hard’

Charly Musonda has opened up on his experience so far at Celtic, admitting start to life playing in Scotland has been nothing short of ‘really hard’.

The Belgian winger joined the Hoops on an 18-month loan deal from Chelsea during the January transfer window, but hasn’t been a mainstay in Brendan Rodgers’ starting line-up since arriving.

The 21-year-old started on the subs bench in both legs of the Europa League showdown with Zenit, and he wasn’t given any game time in the Premiership win over Aberdeen on Sunday either.

But despite being forced to watch a lot of the action from the sidelines, Musonda seems patient enough to wait for a real opportunity to show what he can do.

Speaking via the Daily Record, when he was asked about his time in Glasgow so far, he said:

“It has been really hard, but I expected that.

“In the Premier League there are more 50/50 games, but this is Celtic. We are expected to win every time because I think we have much better players than every single team.

“Everybody wants to beat us, so they give everything in the matches and there are more personal duels.

“For myself I just try to play my game and accept that is the way it is.

“It is good to go up against players who are going to bring that toughness, and this will help me develop as a footballer.”

Celtic are back in Premiership action this midweek, when relegation-threatened Dundee visit Parkhead – and perhaps Neil McCann’s side could be the perfect opponent to kick-start Musonda’s Hoops career.

What do you think of Musonda’s comments?
