The whirlwind youngster channeled his inner Lionel Messi to put the game aside for the visitors.
Bayern Munich star Thomas Müller has cracked down on team-mate Jamal Musiala’s superb solo goal against VfL Wolfsburg on Sunday. The veteran striker, playing alongside the teenage sensation he mentors, celebrated Musiala’s achievement while pointing out how badly the opposition reacted.
As Müller said after the game, via @iMiaSanMia:
That’s one hell of a still image, isn’t it? Musiala slid through more or less the entire Wolfsburg defence, with many defenders seemingly caught up in indecision as to whether to press him or not. As a result, ten-man Bayern regained an ultimately insurmountable lead – just when the pressure was starting to build on them.
The run-and-score in the slalom had shades of Lionel Messi’s most magical moments, and it’s something Bayern will get the chance to come face-to-face soon enough with the first of their Champions League clash against PSG in less than a week. But don’t get too carried away, reminds Müller.
“The dribbling itself – and I’ve seen Jamal do some brilliant moves before – was actually relatively unspectacular,” said the Raumdeuter snapped with a smile. “He just ran straight with the ball – if I had dared to do that more often I might have done that too.”
Well, maybe, Thomas. But this moment? It belonged to the young Bayern prodigy.
