FC Bayern, News: Müller jokes about Musiala
When Jamal Musiala just for DAZN-Interview after the gala against Frankfurt, teammate Thomas Müller gave him something to take with him. “I just sold you!”, Müller shouted somewhat incomprehensibly in the direction of the 19-year-old.

“This scene is probably already circulating on the Internet,” said Müller and should be right. Even FC Bayern’s official Twitter account wrote shortly after the scene: “That can’t be true.” One user wrote about the “non-goal of the decade”, another recalled Frank Mill’s legendary miss in 1986.
