Jamal Musiala has obviously internalized the typical Bayern-typical hunger of success at a young age. The championship title alone was not enough for the 19-year-old top talent in the past season.
“As a team, we did not achieve all the goals that we would have liked to achieve this year,” said Musiala in an interview with Sport1. Although the tenth championship in a row was important: “But to fly out so early in the cup and also in the Champions League, was a big disappointment and not what we wanted. Our claim is different.”
Musiala did not always have the status of a regular player in the 2021/22 season, but was nevertheless quite effective with eight goals in 40 competitive appearances. He is also part of the national team squad of national coach Hansi Flick.
With a view to the coming season, the Munich residents would have to reduce their susceptibility to the counter, the youngster judged. He himself also gained from the fact that Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann had him act in various positions in midfield, although he prefers to play “on the 10 or the wings”.
He himself attributes that Musiala prevailed so quickly with the record champions that he always stayed himself. “If you come up as a young player, you have to stay true to your playing style,” said Musiala: “It doesn’t help to be shy or do something different than before. It won’t get you any further.”

The path in the Jugen departments of FC Southampton and FC Chelsea also shaped him. In the meantime, Musiala has developed the perspective of being a fixture among Munich for years.

However, that is not enough for the jewel. He wanted to “inspire people with my game too,” says Musiala. Just as his role model Lionel Messi did with him. “As a child, I always watched Messi. In almost every game of him, I said ‘Wow’ at least once, he did so many special things. I made it firmly.”
