Speaking at a pre-match press conference before Germany’s friendly against Israel on Saturday evening, head coach Hansi Flick praised Jamal Musiala, a player whom he also coached at Bayern Munich.
“He’s a very intelligent player who you look for upon winning the ball,” said Flick. “The dynamism that he brings when he’s involved in play is something that he does really well. He always manages to create space for the team.
“He can also play in a deeper central-midfield position, but is also a player who is always dangerous in attack.”
The 19-year-old has earned nine caps for Germany.
