Jamal Musiala is currently not only enchanting the supporters of FC Bayern and his coach Julian Nagelsmann - he is also a great promise at the DFB.
Thanks to a conversation.
Munich - At the age of 18, Jamal Musiala * is already delivering strong performances in the current season.
In the four games in which coach Julian Nagelsmann bet on the FC Bayern * youngster, he was directly involved in four goals - on average every 42 minutes.
Even Robert Lewandowski and Erling Haaland can only be amazed.
Even in the dress of the German national team, Musiala, who suffered a capsule injury to his ankle during FCB training at the beginning of the week, already showed his talent and was even in the starting eleven in the World Cup qualification in Liechtenstein (2-0).
Under Hansi Flick, he is already an integral part of the DFB squad, after all, the ex-FCB coach knows about the qualities of dribbling offensive players.
FC Bayern: Jamal Musiala reveals his DFB secret - a conversation was crucial
Fortunately, one almost has to say, Musiala decided to join the DFB team * at the beginning of the year.
The English association had also courted the youngster.
In the end, he decided against the Three Lions - and for the eagle on his chest.
At the disappointing EM in the summer, Musiala was one of the few bright spots in Joachim Löw's * team.
It was allegedly also the ex-national coach who tipped the scales in favor of Germany.
In January at the home game of FC Bayern against TSG Hoffenheim (4: 1), according to
the first meeting between Musiala and Löw should have come.
Also present: Musiala's mother and national team director Oliver Bierhoff.

The conversation is said to have lasted an hour and a half.
Löw convinced the then 17-year-old of a career at the DFB by telling him that so far he had only had a few players with his talent in the national team.
He compared him with world champion Mesut Özil and promised Musiala to lead him to the top of the world.
Successor Flick has to do that, but he has already helped the youngster break through at Bayern.
In 2020 he took Musiala to the final tournament in the Champions League *, where he was not used, but gained important experience.
Flick then brought him in the first Bundesliga game after the triple triumph in Lisbon, where Musiala immediately scored his first Bundesliga goal in an 8-0 win against FC Schalke.
So the conditions for a great career could be worse.
As a fan of FC Bayern and the DFB-Elf, you can be very happy to have a player like Musiala on your team.
He could become the face of German football in the coming years.
