German legend

Lothar Matthaus

told the

Daily Mail:


"You gave the best player from the young English generation to Germany — Musiala. I have a son who is eight years old. I have to buy the Bayern Munich shirts with No 42 on the back and the Germany shirt with No 14. My son is crazy about Musiala. So, thank you England for giving him to us! I do not know why you did not fight more to keep this player in the English shirt. We are so happy to have him.


"When he is on the field, this is like Messi three years ago. He has everything. Fast, good dribbling, the last pass, he can score. He gets the ball and always goes forward; like me against Yugoslavia.

“He is also learning to work better for the defense. He is becoming the complete player. In the future, he will be one of the very best players in the world."

Ahead of the upcoming

World Cup

in November, Musiala is eager to ensure a spot in


squad as he has scored six goals in nine games whilst also registering three assists so far this season.
