Hansi Flick lauds Bayern Munich’s Jamal Musiala for perseverance

When Germany needed Jamal Musiala to step up…he did.

Playing against England at Wembley Stadium was never going to be easy for Germany — or Bayern Munich star Jamal Musiala.

Musiala, of course, had to make the difficult call on which country to play for after spending a good period of his life in England.

While the bright lights of that big stage in London might have made the youngster sweat a little bit, Musiala never got unnerved, nor lost his way even when things got tough.

Instead, Musiala kept fighting and pushing to make something happen — which helped the 19-year-old contribute (in one form or another) to Germany’s first two goals in what would end up a 3-3 draw.

Musiala’s persistence in a tough match was not lost on Germany manners Hansi Flick.

“He showed in many situations today what characterizes him. We need that. With every dribble, he creates a different game situation and makes the opponent open, which creates spaces that you can go into. That’s just what sets Jamal apart,” Flick said (as captured by @iMiaSanMia).

Musiala figures to be a key player for Flick at the World Cup later this year.
