In the past internationals Jamal Musiala had to make do with a place on the bench. This was also mostly the case with FC Bayern in the current Bundesliga season. In an interview with the Munich evening newspaper, coach Julian Nagelsmann explained why this is and what the youngster still has to work on.
First, the coach cited the capsule injury Musiala suffered at the end of September, "which is why he did not play so often from the start". Because of the wound, he still has a few deficits to make up for. The plan now is to “bring him up as normal. He still has to gain physical strength so as not to risk any injuries, ”Nagelsmann continued. “It's our job to get him to a top level. He's an excellent player. "
The trainer also finds it “always interesting” to bring the 18-year-old as a substitute, “because he can make a difference”. However, that does not mean that this is the permanent position for Musiala. “He will also get playing times from the beginning. We are very happy to have it. "
