Chelsea loanee Musonda advised to ditch Scotland for Belgium

Chelsea youngster Charly Musonda has been told a return to Belgium would help his career.

The 21-year-old has made just four league appearances for Celtic since joining the Scottish club on loan in January.

And former Belgium goalkeeper Wim De Coninck believes Musonda should consider a return to his homeland.

"He has a hard time getting through everywhere," De Coninck told

"In Spain the start was very good, but after that things went quiet. I can imagine the Scottish competition is even more difficult for him because that style of football does not suit him at all. He is just too much of a gallery player.

"It is, of course, his profile. He must above all have individual actions and is not really a passer or a finisher. Still, he has to try to become more of a team player.

"He went to Chelsea too fast, I think. It will not be easy to break through in London because of the cut-throat competition.

"Why not return to Belgium? For example, AA Gent would suit him well. Samuel Kalu and Moses Simon are a bit of the same types. He would fit in well with their system."
