Anderlecht coach Ferrera still believes Charly Musonda, the lost Chelsea talent, can make it to the top.
“I still believe he can reach the top of the world. Even if he is 27 and hasn’t got there yet, I will still believe. I wouldn’t say that about many players.
“But when I saw him at 15, I thought this guy is going to become one of the top five players in the world. I still believe he has it in him.
“If I became the coach of Real Madrid, I’d bring him into the squad immediately.”
His under 18 coach Viveash also backed Musonda to fire.
Speaking to the same publication, Viveash said:
“You can guarantee he will be telling the physios what he should be doing to get himself back to top condition because that is how he is,” he says.
“His confident attitude is what will help him get through this. If you’re an inward character, you struggle with bad injuries.
“Mentally that can be a drain and for some people it finishes them because they never get that back. They focus too much on the negative.
“He still has a long career ahead of him. He will certainly be feeling that he can impact Lampard’s Chelsea.
“If he can get himself right, he will believe he is as good as the players in the team and in the squad now.”
