Ex-Chelsea prospect Jamal Musiala makes history with first Bayern Munich goal

Former Chelsea prospect Jamal Musiala made more history with Bayern Munich last night.

The winger became Bayern Munich's youngest-ever goalscorer in the Bundesliga with a strike in Friday's 8-0 win over Schalke.

The former Chelsea academy ace came off the bench to make history and also record a personal milestone with his first senior goal, aged just 17 years and 205 days.

Musiala only made his first-team debut in June, coming on as a sub for Bayern Munich in their 3-1 win over SC Freiburg in the Bundesliga.

The promising attacking midfielder, plucked from Chelsea's academy in the summer of 2019, was a late replacement for club legend Thomas Muller with just a couple of minutes left on the clock.

Earlier in June, Musiala scored his first two goals for the Bavarians, playing for their reserve side in Germany's third tier, 3.Liga.

His double in the 2-0 win over FSV Zwickau made him the second youngest goalscorer in the history of that competition - aged just 17 years and 98 days.

Although Musiala was just 45 days short of the record set by David Alaba.
