Bayern Munich coach Flick hails ex-Chelsea whiz Musiala: We all see his enormous quality

Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick is excited working with English prospect Jamal Musiala.

The former Chelsea trainee has broken several records over the past 12 months at Bayern.

He played a first full 90 this week in Bayern's German Cup triumph over Duren and won great praise from Flick afterwards.

Flick enthused: "Everyone sees that he has enormous quality on the ball and that he can solve one-on-one situations very well, that he acts very cheekily and self-confidently.

"Where he has to improve is stability - including physical stability. But he is 17 years old and still has a lot to do."

The head coach continued: “At the moment you have to say that he is currently the furthest of all our young players. That's why he played through yesterday or came in against Schalke.

“He's already showing his quality, but he has to keep going. You must never be satisfied with what you have. It is a process and a lifelong learning. That goes for him too. With the support of the other players he can certainly take the next step."

Flick concluded: “When and where he plays, we decide depending on the situation. It may be that he will also play there in a top game in the U23. But he is a good option for us, also because Leroy Sané is currently not fit. At the moment I see him more as an option (with the first team) for us."
