Why Jamal Musiala is right to represent Germany over England?

Jamal Musiala-Bayern Munich

The 18-year-old has decided to represent his homeland at the international level although he spent his formative years in England.

Bayern Munich prospect Jamal Musiala has recently revealed that he would represent Germany at the international although he has played for Three Lions at youth level.

The 18-year-old moved from his homeland Germany to England at the early age of seven and then entered Chelsea‘s academy.

After spending around eight years at the Blues’ youth ranks, Musiala was snapped up by German giants Bayern Munich. He has now well integrated into the Bavarians’ first team and is touted as one of the hottest talents in Europe.

While having already three goals to his name in Bundesliga this season, Musiala bagged his first Champions League goal in Bayer’s 4-1 routing of Lazio days ago.

One of the highly discussed things about Musiala was which country he would choose to represent at international as he can play for both Germany and England.

Now Musiala has gone with the decision to play for his homeland though he revealed that he had caught in two minds before he made his final call. He also gushed about England, the place which introduced him to football.

“England is home for me. It is difficult to find words for what England means for me because I have so many memories connected to very positive emotions.”

The current Three Lions Squad has been already with a plethora of young talents and Musiala would find it harder to make an impact with the senior team if he were to represent England.

The Bavarians youngster also stated that he would get a lot of chances at the Germany national team.

I’ve thought about this question a lot. “‘What is best for my future?’ ‘Where do I have more chances to play?’ In the end, I just listened to the feeling that over a long period of time kept telling me that it was the right decision to play for Germany, the land I was born in. Still, it wasn’t an easy decision for me.”
