Jamal Musiala has been forced to leave Germany training after being caught by teammate Thomas Muller’s sliding tackle… but the wonderkid is not expected to miss any Nations League games.
Jamal Musiala was forced to leave a Germany training session early after his leg was injured by Thomas Muller’s sliding tackle.
It comes as the Bayern Munich sensation and the rest of the national team prepare for Nations League matches against Hungary and England.
Muller made the reckless tackle on Musiala, 19, during Tuesday’s training session, leaving him hobbling before medical personnel arrived to assess the cut on his shin.
Muller, an experienced Bayern teammate, quickly apologized and was one of the first to call for help after the accident.
Despite Musiala appearing to have a long cut visible along his leg, reports indicate that the problem is not serious.
‘After a duel with Bayern colleague Müller, Musiala has to stop the first training session with the DFB team in Frankfurt,’ German sports reporter Kerry Hau tweeted.
Musiala played youth football for England before deciding to play senior football for Germany, his birth country, and his mother’s homeland.
The two sides meet on Monday, following a 1-1 draw in June when the midfielder was one of the standout performers.
Despite Bayern drawing three and losing one of their first seven Bundesliga games this season, the teenager has been one of the club’s brightest sparks.
Musiala has four goals and one assist in six appearances for the German giants so far.
