CHARLY MUSONDA is enjoying life at Celtic, according to boss Brendan Rodgers.
The on-loan Chelsea midfielder agreed an 18-month deal in January, but has made only three starts while appearing as a substitute on five occasions.
And Rodgers reckons it will be next season before the 21-year-old Belgian playmaker makes an impact at the champions.
He said: “It’s a different type of loan for Charly compared to when he went to Spain and had to succeed straight away. Here he has 18 months to settle in, find the way of working and realising the pressures of a big club.
“But he’s enjoying every minute of it and he knows that over time here he will get an opportunity to show it in training where he works well and then in the games. It’s just time, that’s all.
“All players want to play, but he’s no different to Patrick Roberts or some of the others. They have a respect for where they are and what the team is doing. They respect that you can only pick 11 players.
“He’s absolutely fine. He’s here for 18 months and by the end of that he knows he is going to be a better player.”
