Sports Bilton Musonda proud of nephew Charly Jnr

Bilton Musonda has hailed his nephew Charly Musonda Jr’s recent competitive debut for English Premier League side Chelsea.

Charly, 20, the son of former Zambia star Charles Musonda, on Sunday featured for Chelsea when they lost to Arsenal in the Community Shield final.

The youngster was introduced in the 82nd minute as the Blues lost 4-1 to Arsenal on penalties after a 1-1 draw.

In an interview, Bilton said the Musonda family was proud of his elder brother’s son.

“It’s long over due to see the young boy being introduced in the main Chelsea team. He is a talented boy, we have all seen him,” the Green Buffaloes coach said.

“We were waiting for him to start playing for Chelsea. We hope and trust he is going to keep that position and do well in his football career,” Musonda said.

The Belgian attacking midfielder has just returned to Chelsea after a loan spell at Spanish side Real Betis.

“We are very proud of the boy. It is very fortunate to have someone playing in the EPL and especially for Chelsea. You can play in Europe but the type of a team you are playing for matters,” he said.


  1. I’m sure playing for Zambia is Plan B to Belgium. In fact we’re likely to see more foreign based Zambians coming up now that we have dual citizenship; which we should have done years back!

  2. There is another Zambian player going by the name of Frankie Chisenga Musonda, 19 years old a professional footballer who plays as a defender for League Two club Luton Town, born in Bedford in Uk. He is a well disciplined player, he captained the under 18 team for Luton town and signed a professional contract with Luton in 2015.

  3. I alsoplay for Chiangching Club THE BEST IN TAIWAN , so Bilton stop bragging he is not your son and will never listen nothing from u , these kids born in europe do not behave same with a kid born in zed. A zed kid respects an uncle NOT this one he only listens to ur elder brother Charlie cool. No one else, so dont go bragging kunyenga bakazi babene in the name of saying i have a boy in ESP

  4. Bilton is Charles Musonda senior’s brother so how can Charles Junior be his nephew mwebantu? That young boy is his son!

  5. As long as he does not don’t Zambian jersey, he is stil like any other foreign player coz he does not bring value to Zambia…away with him…..

  6. We need HIM to start featuring for mother Zambia no matter what happened to his father. We all know who was issuing PHD’s to is father. HOME IS HOME. EAST OR WEST HOME IS ALWAYS SWEET HOME.
