With his double in the 2-0 victory of FC Bayern Munich 2 against FSV Zwickau, Jamal Musiala became the second youngest goal scorer in third division history after David Alaba.
Munich - You can hardly introduce yourself more impressively than Jamal Musiala. The only 17-year-old offensive player from Bayern had introduced himself on Tuesday. Not on the big stage yet, but all the more impressive. It was 0-0 after just under an hour in the third division game of the formally strong "Bayern amateurs" against the relegation-prone Saxons of FSV Zwickau.
Musiala decides to play alone
At a time when it seemed that the unusualness of the encounter was limited to Sebastian Hoeneß. The Bayern coach was the first coach in German professional football to have a yellow card suspension. In the 57th minute from the stands, he instructed his assistants Dirk Teschke and David Krecidlo to make a triple change to add the ninth victory in the twelfth game to the record as the best team in the second half of the season. Among these three jokers was Musiala, who was ultimately to decide the game single-handedly. With a double pack. As the second youngest scorer in third division history behind club colleague David Alaba. Final score 2: 0.
With this, Musiala had not only registered in the history books in this actually inconspicuous third division game, but also burned into the memories of the few present in the ghostly Grünwald stadium. It seems that the Corona Days on Säbener Straße have once again given birth to a new star.
"Enormous qualities with a ball"
The teammates were then as impressed as coach Hoeneß. “Enormous qualities with the ball” were attested to by the 38-year-old coach, and Musiala was “grippy and aggressive, even against the ball”. The Stuttgart-born rough diamond with British roots, who moved from FC Chelsea's youth academy to Munich last summer, also showed remarkable speed and cold-heartedness in his two goals.
"Jamal is always focused, calm and somewhat reserved," reports Hoeneß, "but when he comes onto the pitch, he goes full throttle". It was only on February 26th that Bavaria's early starter, who had previously been used mainly in Miroslav Klose's U17 this season, was 17 years old. So there is still plenty of time for further chapters in the history books. Perhaps already on Sunday (5 p.m.) when Musiala is visiting the little Bavarians at Waldhof Mannheim
