With his decisive goal to make it 2-1 against 1. FC Köln in the 89th minute of the game, Jamal Musiala became FC Bayern’s celebrated champion hero on the last day of the Bundesliga season. Now the youngster himself spoke about his goal, which was no less than a world-class moment in its creation and completion.
During his action on Saturday afternoon, Jamal Musiala reached for the very highest football shelf. Serge Gnabry’s pass on the left corner of the penalty area. Musiala processed the ball with his left hand, placed it on his right foot in a flowing movement including a 180-degree turn and hammered the game device into the net, making it impossible for Effzeh keeper Marvin Schwäbe to hold it.
It was logically the most important goal of the 20-year-old’s career so far. Musiala himself spoke to FC Bayern club media about his big moment.
Musiala has scored twelve times in 33 Bundesliga games
“I practiced that action in training all those years before. That’s why I was so happy because I’d practiced it so often. It’s really good that it worked out in the game and at a moment like that,” said Musiala, who played his best personal Bundesliga season to date with twelve goals in 33 games.
“It was the decisive goal for the championship after not scoring for a while. I don’t have the words to describe it now. It’s just amazing!” added Musiala, who is already considered to be rather introverted.
Musiala’s acceptance of the ball, including processing, turning and his rock-hard finish from around 18 meters away from the goal – all aspects of the most important of FC Bayern’s 92 goals this season were mouth-watering.
Accordingly, the national player was one of the most celebrated heroes on Sunday at Munich’s Marienplatz, where FC Bayern presented the championship trophy to their fans.
