Jamal Musiala had an excellent last season at Bayern Munich and has proved that the Bavarian club can count on him in the coming years. Now, the youngster shows great social awareness and responsibility by helping his former club, City Central FC in Southampton, with a football tournament.
Southampton, as a city, was hit hard by the Corona, and there are major problems with poverty, drugs, prostitution, and high unemployment. The aim of the cup isn’t of financial matter. Musiala wants to teach girls and boys (U7, U8, U9, and U11) values, such as respect, responsibility, and gratitude. He also wants to help them get away from the dreary reality the kids live in Southampton.
Musiala told Bild that it was great to see them having so much fun. “The values they learned there will help them grow as people and players, no matter what sport they end up choosing — and that made me very happy. I’ve been able to give something back to the community where I started my career in England.”
Dragos Cavasdan, Central City’s chairman, was very happy that the tournament happened, saying: “We couldn’t be more grateful to know this boy. Apart from his footballing skills, which are outstanding, the way he speaks in interviews and behaves on the pitch gives me hope that there are still sensible, good-thinking people in football.”
Jamal Musiala added that he hopes that he’ll be able to organize this tournament every year.
