Charly Musonda reflected on his first goal for Chelsea in the Blues’ 5-1 home win against Nottingham Forest last night. Antonio Conte’s men will face Everton in the next stage of Carabao Cup.
“It was my first start and it was very exciting and, to be honest, I was more nervous before the game. – the Belgian star said – I had to wait for so long for the game to start, a 7.45pm kick-off, so when the game started I was at ease and I felt really good”.
“I was looking forward to it. I come from the Academy and it was a great experience to be able to play my first game with the first team here at the Bridge, but it’s only the first game and I have to keep on working”.
The 20-year-old, who spent last season on loan at Real Betis in Spain, added: “It was an emotional moment to score my first goal at the Bridge. I can’t even remember it now! I was very happy and you could see that. I was in tears to be honest. If the lads didn’t come and get me I don’t know what would have happened! It was a great moment”.
