“I hope to compete for the Ballon d’Or”: Jamal Musiala
The youngster scored the decisive goals in the Bundesliga title race last season
Bayern Munich’s Jamal Musiala has insisted that he hopes to win the Ballon d’Or in future and wants to be among the best players in future.
Jamal Musiala has received a lot of praise, with supporters tipping the German teenager to win the Ballon d’Or and drawing comparisons to Lionel Messi.
The teenage midfielder has received a lot of support from the crowd, with one fan describing him as a “generational talent” who “would likely be in the exact same league as Lionel Messi.”
Many people compared Musiala to the legendary Argentine player, with some saying that Musiala’s dribbling was the greatest they witnessed from a 19-year-old since Messi.
Others thought Kylian Mbappe was a better parallel, saying the French forward would soon have “a strong competitor” for the Ballon d’Or.

Numerous references to Musiala winning football’s highest individual prize were made since he was considered to be “simply a baller.”
Speaking to Bild he said: “In 1 or 2 years, I want to be at the highest possible level. I want to be one of the best players in the world, it’s my plan and ambition. That’s my idea, I hope to compete for the Ballon d’Or”,
The previous year, the 19-year-old came in third place for the Kopa Trophy at the Ballon d’Or accolades, below Barcelona midfielder Gavi and Real Madrid forward Eduardo Camavinga. The Bavarian heavyweights aren’t too thrilled about Musiala getting the nod over Gavi after he helped Bayern win the Bundesliga title last season with eight goals and eight assists.
The 20-year-old has already played more than 100 times in Bayern Munich’s senior league and is gearing up to guide the team to Champions League success.
Muisala wasn’t just unavailable to Chelsea; he also had the opportunity to represent England at the senior international level.
On the youth global stage, the Bayern star, who is German by birth, represented both England and Germany.
