Hansi Flick recently commented on the future of Bayern Munich’s bright talent, Jamal Musiala. The German coach is confident that the youngster will sign a contract extension in Bavaria very soon.
Musiala has already entered the final 18-month period on his deal, and the contract renegotiation talks are reportedly progressing as his 18th birthday approaches.
Flick is certain that Jamal Musiala can fully develop in the Bavarian club, as he is often given the chance to play for the first team. Musiala also has the full support of his teammates and front office.
The coach told Sport Bild: “Why should he go anywhere else? He can develop here, and he has the support and appreciation of the club, the coaching team, and the other players.”
On the other hand, Flick refused to address Musiala’s national team choice. Musiala is eligible to play for both England and Germany, and both countries are very keen to see the young talent playing for them.
“I spoke to Jamal and told him that he would have to decide it all by himself,” Flick said, “He has to take responsibility for his future himself.”
Joachim Löw recently personally contacted Musiala after Bayern’s Bundesliga match and tried to convince him to choose the German national team.
Oliver Bierhoff, the national team director, recently commented on the situation (via Goal): “We had a very good and open conversation, we are convinced that he will be a national team player, but it’s a very personal decision.”
What will Musiala’s final decision be, remains to be seen, as he has until March to decide.
