Why Jamal Musiala is called 'the next Lionel Messi'?
Jamal Musiala is already enjoying a sensational season with Bayern Munich, and it’s only halfway over as the European footballing world pauses for the winter World Cup in Qatar
With 12 goals and 10 assists in 22 appearances, he's one of Julian Nagelsmann's top performers and will now be hoping to help Hansi Flick’s side return Germany to glory at the FIFA World Cup.
His performances have not gone un-noticed, Bayern and Germany legend Lothar Matthäus recently compared the 19-year-old to Paris Saint-Germain and Argentina’s Lionel Messi
Matthäus had said, 'this is magic, this is Messi-like. This man must never leave Bayern' in describing Musiala, comically adding that his current valuation should be somewhere around a quarter of a billion
Even for those that aren’t regular supporters of Bayern, or even the Bundesliga, they’ve started to hear Musiala’s name and the noise will get even louder if he has a solid tournament in Qatar with Germany
The comparison to Messi is something that Musiala isn’t letting get to him.
