Peter Hermann raves over Bayern Munich’s Jamal Musiala and Bayer Leverkusen’s Florian Wirtz, who secretly swapped jerseys

The German phenoms were praised by the former assistant of Jupp Heynckes.


It is not hard to identify the raw talent of Bayern Munich’s Jamal Musiala and Bayer Leverkusen’s Florian Wirtz, but Peter Hermann, a former assistant coach under Jupp Heynckes and Hansi Flick, thinks the duo could be special.

“That’s correct. Together with Herman Gerland, I saw (Wirtz) at the final of the U-17 Bundesliga, Borussia Dortmund against Cologne. At that time Florian was still playing for FC Köln and Gerland and I immediately noticed him in this game,” Hermann said to Abendzeitung. “When I last took over for eight weeks with Hannes Wolf in Leverkusen, I was allowed to train him and that was a lot of fun. The boy has really great talent — just like Jamal Musiala from Bayern Munich. We are currently in Germany, for example, with Malik Tillman (FC Bayern), Karim Adeyemi (RB Salzburg) or Jan Thielmann (FC Köln) really a lot of good young players — but Wirtz and Musiala, they are something special.”

Those two special players also swapped kits after Bayern Munich’s win yesterday as well:
