Jamal Musiala is playing very well in the World Cup. Provides the most fun among the entertaining Bavarian footballers. Youth hymns range from “eye candy” to “snake talent”.
As Jamel Musiala retired and was replaced, the crowd at Allianz Arena rose to pay tribute to the new Bayern favorite.
Julian Nagelsmann hugged the 19-year-old aside, who charmed fans and experts with his football magic in the first weeks of the season and was overwhelmed with hymns of praise and enthusiasm. “It’s really fun on the pitch,” Musial said later, with thick headphones around his neck on the belly of the arena, talking about himself, his next amazing goal and the newly created hilarious Bavarian offensive. He has the most fun with it.
“It was the best”
Jamal Musiala once again secured the most spectacular moments in the not-so-exciting 2-0 win of the Bundesliga champions against VfL Wolfsburg – especially at the opening goal. After Thomas Müller’s pass, he turned with lightning speed, stumbled through two opponents, stumbled for a moment, stood up, looked towards the goal – “and he hit the ball dry in the lower left corner,” as noted by Müller passer. Impressed: “It was the best.”
This was the goal of the Musiala brand. “It’s just the will, the hunger to score. If I fall to the ground or get a foul, I always try to keep playing, “he described the scene himself:” Overclocking is one of my qualities. The ball was in a good position to shoot. I hit him well.
Müller, who scored 2-0 against former Bayern coach Niko Kovac, confirmed Musial’s “snake talent” with a goal. Sports director Hasan Salihamidzic called it an “eye candy” as Musiala watches his ingenious work on the ball: “He brings his potential to the field. I’m glad he is playing for us. “
Record national player Lothar Matthäus is already discovering the potential of a future world footballer in Musiala. “He takes it with him, anyway,” said the only German footballer to date (1991), impressed. Bayern boss Oliver Kahn also sang the anthem to a unique talent that record champions were able to retain in the early to 2026. “I just met him in the dressing room and said there must be more,” Kahn joked after the game. Seriously, he added, “No, he had a great start to the season. What is playing at the moment is brilliant, remarkable. The goal he scored was also excellent.
Musisla seems to have no limits as long as it remains what it is. Born in Stuttgart, the young man grew up in England for a long time, so he speaks an engaging “denglish”, loves football, works very hard on himself and has a clear head.
“I’m always hungry”
“I’m always hungry for improvement,” said Musiał on Sunday night. He wants not only to be in the top eleven at FC Bayern, but also on the DFB team of national coach Hansi Flick. Musiala has everything it takes to shine as the star of the Qatar World Cup at the end of the year after EM 2021 was still a tasting course for him.
As modest and reserved as Musiala is off the pitch, he is confident, ambitious and goal-oriented on the pitch. He knows how to appear in the Munich star group with Sadio Mané, Müller, Joshua Kimmich and the company. With four goals in three games of the season, he also fills the void left by forward Robert Lewandowski this summer.
– I started out this way that I would bring more goals and more efficiency to my game. I’m just glad I can do it now, Musial said cheerfully.
His bosses see no danger that he could take off. – He’s a great boy, he trains very well, he is very professional. He doesn’t think about other things. Jamal lives for football. I’m not worried about him – said Salihamidzic.
His coach simply referred to competitors as Leroy Sané, whom he is currently relegating to a reserve role. “Jamal is an extremely modest player, always wanting to learn, always wanting to improve. He’s very well-mannered. I don’t have to do much about it,” said Nagelsmann, who gave Musial a “standing ovation” to 75,000 spectators. And then he said, “When he gets some fresh air, we have a lot of other good players who want to catch their hooves and play. We have good quality in stock. That’s why you always have to deliver. Magic Musiał too.
