Charly Musonda has revealed he is keeping his feet firmly on the ground at Real Betis, despite being treated like a rock star.
According to Yahoo, who quote Estadio Deportvio, Musonda believes he is settling well at Betis, the Belgian says that having family around him is the most important thing.
My mother, father and one of my brothers are here in Sevilla with me. It’s important to have my family close, as it is for everyone else in the world.
Musonda has picked up plenty of plaudits in just a few games for the Spanish side, he says he thinks he has surprised a number of people with his ability.
I’m 19 years old and I’ve come here to play football. I’m not a star. The fans treat me as if I’m a rock star but I’ve only come here to play football. They’ve surprised me and I think I’ve surprised them. Betis is a fantastic club; the coach and his staff. I’m very happy here and I want to keep improving.
He has helped lift the club’s relegation fears in the few games that he has been in La Liga, but his performances have led to reports that Belgium’s manager, Marc Wilmots could come and watch one of his games.
According to the reports, there is a good chance that Musonda will also spend next season at Betis to continue his development. Should he continue to rise at the speed he has, a Chelsea debut shouldn’t be too far away.
