Charly Musonda shared his excitement for the start of pre-season whilst showing off his chiselled physique – and Chelsea fans absolutely loved it.
Musonda uploaded a story to his Instagram, captioned with a six-week countdown until training for the 2021/22 campaign begins.
The 24-year-old hasn’t kicked a ball for Chelsea’s first team since January 2018, due to several loans and awful injury luck.
Now seemingly fully fit, he will be hoping to break back into Thomas Tuchel’s squad.
Blues fans wanted nothing more than to see Musonda succeed and hoped his development could remain at Stamford Bridge.
Here’s how they reacted on Twitter:
His perseverance after all of these injuries is amazing. I really hope he can find his way into our team somehow.

Its been a tragic tail of set-backs and disappoints for Musonda up until this point.
He joined Chelsea in 2012 as an exciting young talent, who quickly rose through the youth ranks.
Opportunities in the senior side were few and far between, so the Belgian opted to cut his teeth elsewhere.
A move to Real Betis in 2016 began his loanee cycle, one that was followed by a disappointing spell at Celtic.
