Jamal Musiala is the new high-flyer at Bayern Munich.
The youngster even equalized a goal record set by Honorary President Uli Hoeneß.
Munich – Robert Lewandowski and Erling Haaland turned their backs on the Bundesliga in the summer.
The two miracle strikers have shot up Germany's top floor in recent years and tumbled the records at the same time.
The two superstars are now hunting for goals abroad for Barcelona and Manchester City respectively.
In Sadio Mané, FC Bayern have piloted a new top star into the Bundesliga as Lewandowski's replacement.
But a youngster is now in the spotlight and steals the show from the Senegalese.
We're talking about Jamal Musiala.
The 19-year-old is even following in the footsteps of Bavaria's Honorary President Uli Hoeneß and has broken an age-old record.
Born: February 26, 2003 (age 19), Stuttgart
Bundesliga goals for FC Bayern: 13 in 58 games (as of August 9, 2022)
Contract until: 06/30/2026
FC Bayern: Jamal Musiala breaks Uli Hoeneß's record
Jamal Musiala is currently on everyone's lips.
Both in the Supercup and in the 6-1 gala against Eintracht Frankfurt, the technically adept offensive player was on the top scorers list.
At the start of the Bundesliga against SGE, Musiala delighted the fans with a brace, especially the second goal after taking the ball perfectly was a dream come true.

Musiala scored his 13th Bundesliga goal in 58 appearances against Frankfurt.
With this mark, the 19-year-old drew level with ex-striker Uli Hoeneß, because only the former manager and president scored as often for FC Bayern Munich before his 20th birthday.
Musiala turns 20 on February 26, so one more goal can make him the sole record holder.

With his style of play, Musiala has become an integral part of the current Bayern team.
Those in charge see it that way too.
"Why would you let him out?
He's in a very good mood, scores goals, is important for our game," said sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic.

Meanwhile, Musiala, who is already Bayern's youngest goalscorer in the Bundesliga and Champions League, remains humble and wants to confirm his top form.
“I want to develop further, get more playing time and score more goals.
I want to take a step forward in all areas," said the native of Stuttgart in a BR interview.
Musiala also explained why he still had "many sleepless nights" in 2021.
