WUNDERKIND Ex-Chelsea wonderkid Jamal Musiala is the second youngest goalscorer in Germany’s third tier and plays for Bayern Munich
EARLIER this week, Jamal Musiala announced himself in spectacular fashion to Bayern Munich fans.
The promising attacking midfielder, plucked from Chelsea’s academy last summer, scored his first two goals for the Bavarians, playing for their reserve side in Germany’s third tier, 3.Liga.
His double in the 2-0 win over FSV Zwickau made him the second youngest goalscorer in the history of that competition – aged just 17 years and 98 days.
Although Musiala was just 45 days short of the record set by David Alaba, the impressive feat was not lost on Bayern’s social media channels – with their official Twitter page sharing an image of Jamal with a lovestruck eyes emoji.
MOVING FROM STAMFORD BRIDGE
Despite Chelsea’s desperate attempts to keep Musiala at Stamford Bridge on a long-term deal, the Stuttgart-born youngster signed for Bayern Munich in 2019 on a five-year-contract.
He joined the trend of English youngsters leaving the UK for Germany in search of first team football, including Jadon Sancho and Reiss Nelson.
Interestingly, his agent is Callum Hudson-Odoi’s older brother, Bradley.
Hudson-Odoi was a chief target for the German champions, before they turned their attentions to Musiala and the England international signed a new deal with the Blues.
ENGLAND OR GERMANY?
Although he was born in Germany, Musiala has starred for the Three Lions at youth level.
Astonishingly, he made his debut for the Under-15s at the tender age of 13.
