‘This hurts’– Chelsea fans all saying the same thing after selling Bayern Munich super star Jamal Musiala for just £180k
CHELSEA fans have lambasted the decision of the club to allow teenage sensation Jamal Musiala to leave for just £180,000.
Musiala, 19, left Chelsea to join Bayern Munich in 2019 and from there he has blossomed into one of the most exciting talents in world football.
He starred in Bayern’s 2-0 victory over Barcelona last night, dominating the midfield against the likes of rival prodigy Pedri and veteran Sergio Busquets. The attacking midfielder even chipped in with an assist for Leroy Sane’s toe poke to double the advantage.
But Chelsea fans have retrospectively criticised the club for allowing the sale of yet another Cobham graduate. Fans took to social media to vent their frustration. High-profile Chelsea fan Frank Khalid said:
“This hurts!!!” and paired his post with a screenshot of an ESPN tweet which reminded fans about the sale of the youngster. A second user added: “Hurts bad bad,” while a third user said: “Musiala could be playing for Chelsea it hurts so much so so much.” Others chose to draw comparisons with Musiala to La Masia products Pedri and Gavi, who themselves are two rising stars of football. “Musiala won the Pedri and Gavi debate,” declared one fan.
His performance also drew praise from Thierry Henry, who told CBS Sports Golazo: “First and foremost, he looks like he is 13 years old. But when he gets the ball at his feet, he’s not scared of anyone.”
Based on his performance last night and his games throughout this season so far, it’s clear to see why he is so highly rated. Against Barcelona he had the most passes in the final third (22), the joint most touches in the opposition box (8) most chances created (5) most poss won in the final third (3), joint most touches in the opposition box (8) and the joint most shots (2).
He remains Bayern’s top goalscorer after yesterday’s game as well, with six goals to his name, and has also gone level with Thomas Muller, Kingsley Coman and Sane for assists this season.
