Jamal Musiala is now a worthy selection member of ‘Die Mannschaft’ and has already scored minutes for Germany in nine international matches, in which he also scored once. Yet the life of the eighteen-year-old talent of Bayern Munich is still very ordinary.
“My mother still takes me to training and picks me up too,” the midfielder told the BBC. “That’s great, but I’m working on getting my driver’s license. Hopefully I will succeed sometime in the coming weeks.”
Musiala, who also holds a British passport, played in the youth teams of Southampton and Chelsea but was eventually tempted by Bayern. “They had a clear plan about how they wanted to bring me. It couldn’t go too fast. I believed them and then went for it. Now it’s all normal, but in the beginning I was very nervous. Seeing stars Robert Lewandowski regularly felt surreal. Now they are kind of my friends.”
