Chelsea wonder kid is 'the new Xavi'

Chelsea's latest teenage wonder kid has all the credentials to make it to the top, according to his former coach.

Belgian Charly Musonda Junior, 17, has already tasted success, pictured here in football socks during Chelsea's thrilling 7-6 aggregate FA Youth Cup triumph over Fulham this year.

Johan Boskamp, Musonda's former coach at Anderlecht, describes him as a cross between World Cup-winning Spain and Barcelona midfielders Andres Iniesta and Xavi.

And Boskamp should know. He started training Musonda from the age of 15.

Musonda comes with a great pedigree. His father Charly senior graced the Anderlecht shirt for a decade, while two brothers, both older than him, have also been on Chelsea's books.

Musonda Junior's amazing skills levels are showcased on an internet video depicting him playing keepy-uppy with a little ball of socks .

He's been at Stamford Bridge since 2012 and soon established himself as a leading light in the under-21 squad.
