Bayern Munich’s Jamal Musiala snubs Nigeria for Germany

Bayern Munich winger, Jamal Musiala, has confirmed his decision to play for Germany on the international stage.

Musiala previously starred for England’s under 21 but was eligible to play for Nigeria.

The 17-year-old was born in Stuttgart to a German mother and British-Nigerian father.

He moved to England at seven, where he played for the Chelsea academy.

Musiala then moved back to Germany to join Bayern Munich in July 2019.

The teenager played two games for Germany’s U16 side in 2018.

He has now told The Athletic: “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.”
