Musiala out to impress Nagelsmann

Teenage sensation Jamal Musiala is determined to become an "important part" of the Bayern Munich first team under Julian Nagelsmann this campaign.

Bayern Munich are 13/20 to win their opening match of the new Bundesliga season against Borussia Monchengladbach, who are 10/3 to win, with the draw 7/2.

New era at Bayern

The Bavarians won their ninth straight top-flight title last season before manager Hansi Flick departed and new boss Nagelsmann has since arrived from Leipzig.

Musiala enjoyed an excellent breakthrough campaign under Flick last term, scoring six goals and laying on an assist, and also became the club's youngest ever goalscorer in the Champions League.

And the German youngster, who claims his favoured position is in an attacking midfield role, also featured for his country at Euro 2020.

With the new season fast approaching, Musiala, who came through the Chelsea youth system, is hoping he can build on the last year or so and become a first-team regular under former Hoffenheim manager Nagelsmann.

Bayern Munich have been relatively quiet on the transfer front this summer with Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano their most notable acquisition.

Improvement to come

Speaking to Sport Bild, Musiala said: "The most important thing for me, though, is to play as many minutes as possible so I can develop - I want to become an important part of the team under Julian Nagelsmann.

"We've already done a lot of work together on my first touch, my vision and coordination - I can really improve in that regard.

"This season I want to score more goals and provide more assists."
