Musonda must focus on the pitch, not social media - Conte

Chelsea are prepared to send Charly Musonda on loan after his controversial social media post earlier in the week.

The youngster made his first start for Chelsea in their 5-1 win over Nottingham Forest last month and also found the back of the net in the EFL Cup contest.

Conte reiterated this message in his Friday press conference in which he stressed there would be opportunities ahead for Musonda to stake a claim in Chelsea's first-team squad.

"I think Charly could have a good opportunity to play".

'He has to continue to work very hard to improve himself, in the physical and tactical aspect, but he's working very well.

"His mind must be focused on the pitch and not social media". I told him this. I told him this.

"Honestly I think, above all with young players, it is very important to speak with them and to try to explain which is the right way". I did this. I think he understood.


"He must continue to work in the way he has been doing". Because social media is not important for his career'.

"I think of the expression "we must be focused on the present". He has to continue to work and focus and the opportunity will come'.

Celtic could renew their interest in Chelsea youngster Charly Musonda, after the Blues hinted that the Belgian Under-21 global would be farmed out on loan in January.

He added: 'Christensen can be a good example.

Andreas Christensen, who blossomed while on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach, is viewed as the ideal example of how the youngster can improve while playing elsewhere. We have only three other No 10s and two usually play.

"He is a talented player", he said. If - if - his attention is more on the pitch and not the social media!'
