Bayern Munich youngster hailed as ‘one of the biggest talents Germany has ever had’

Bayern Munich youngster Jamal Musiala “might be one of the biggest talents Germany has ever had,” according to his teammate for club and country Leon Goretzka. 

Musiala joined the German outfit from Premier League giants Chelsea in 2019 when he was just 16 years old, having also spent time at Southampton. 

Now 20, he has already broken countless records, and boasts a phenomenal 116 caps for the Bavarian outfit. Musiala also has 20 Germany caps to his name, having initially represented England at various youth levels.

Despite his age, Musiala has represented his club in major competitions such as the Bundesliga and the Champions League, as well as representing Germany in both the Euros and the World Cup.

The youngster has already proved he is one of the biggest talents in world football, but there is simply no telling how far he will go in his promising career.

Musiala boasts 15 goals and 13 assists for Bayern Munich this season, with his teammate Goretzka heaping praise on the young star.

“Jamal might be one of the biggest talents Germany has ever had because he’s already able to constantly deliver good performances,” Goretzka told UEFA. “He doesn’t have many ups and downs. 

“The fact that he’s already in our starting XI every week shows that. He helps us achieve our goals. He’s extremely good on the ball, in narrow spaces, and he creates a lot of danger. 

“He has outstanding qualities. If he keeps working like that and stays fit, the sky’s the limit for him.”

While Musiala doesn’t need much help on the training ground, he can definitely look up to the likes of Goretzka, who himself has proven to be a key player for Bayern Munich and indeed Germany in recent years.

The midfielder has 50 caps for his national team, and is the perfect role model for Musiala as the youngster aims to become even better.

There is, of course, the presence of Thomas Muller at Bayern Munich, with the legendary forward another fantastic player for Musiala to look up to, particularly given their similar position on the pitch.

Muller and Musiala are now heading towards opposite moments in their careers, with the latter representing the perfect replacement for the former for both club and country.

Goretzka has also been fortunate enough to have learned from Muller, with the central midfielder now keen to pass on such knowledge to Musiala.

“It’s my task to help younger players and to serve as an example,” said Goretzka. “Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben were the players who helped me when I came to Bayern. So I see it as my task. 

“I won’t tell him how to dribble or what to do every day, because he knows best what to do, but I want to help him on the pitch, give him that strength or be there for him when he has a question, and help him in situations he doesn’t know about yet, like all the media things that can be expected of him in the future. All of us in the team want to help him.”
