Jamal Musiala was in the Chelsea academy for eight years, before leaving the club as a 16-year-old in 2019 to Bayern Munich.

Two years after leaving Chelsea for Bayern, Musiala has blossomed into a top player for the Bavarians and already has a bright future ahead in the Germany national team.

Born in Germany to a British-Nigerian father and German mother and raised mainly in England, Musiala represented both Germany and England at youth level, although he played mostly for the young Lions. Musiala played u21 football for England just last year before he eventually pledged his allegiance to the Germany national team for future games in February 2021.

Musiala is now set to meet England in the second round of the Euros, and he has now admitted that he has no problems rooting for Germany against England.

When asked if Germany’s last-16 tie at Wembley will be a difficult game for him emotionally, Musiala told the German Football Association’s website: “No, I made a conscious decision to play for Germany.

“But of course it’s no ordinary game for me. England is my second home and I had a lot of great years there, made a lot of friends and learnt a great deal.

“I don’t want to forget my time there and it’s not something you can just shrug off. It will be a special match for me.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
