“They won’t deny you of your future Ballon d’Or”

Bayern Munich defender Alphonso Davies has backed Jamal Musiala to win a future Ballon d’Or after the German teenager missed Gavi for the Kopa Trophy.

Musiala, 19, was in contention to win the Kopa Trophy, which recognizes the best performing player under the age of 21.

Barcelona’s Gavi, 18, won the award much to the amazement of Bayern fans, players and coaches who believe Musiala should have lifted the trophy.

The Germany midfielder was third but Davies is backing him to win a Ballon d’Or in the future.

The Austrian tweeted:

“They may have denied you your Kopa trophy, but they will not deny you your future Ballon d’Or #goldboy.”

They may have denied you your Kopa trophy, but they won’t deny you your future Ballon d’Or #goldboy 🙏🏾

Musiala has been a revelation at the Allianz Arena since joining the club’s youth team from Chelsea academy in 2019.

The German made his senior debut in 2020 and became Bayern’s youngest debutant in a 3-1 win over SC Freiburg.

He has made 92 appearances for Julian Nagelsmann’s side, scoring 22 goals and providing 15 assists in all competitions.

It was his 2021-22 campaign that made many aware of the tremendous talent he possesses.

Musiala has made 40 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring eight goals and providing six assists.

Nagelsmann clearly thinks the midfielder deserved the award at the Ballon d’Or ceremony, saying:

“You’re wearing club goggles. In my eyes, however, Musiala and Bellingham have had a better season than the winner, Gavi, who is also doing well.”

Officially. Gavi wins the Kopa trophy. ✨🤵🏼‍♂️ #BallonDOr🥇 Gavi 🥈 Eduardo Camavinga 🥉 Jamal Musiala

Gavi has been a mainstay in Barcelona’s midfield since his debut in 2021.

He made 47 appearances in all competitions last season, scoring two goals and providing six assists.

Musiala is certainly in the running for a future Ballon d’Or

The new generation of talent eyeing a Ballon d’Or in the future is remarkable, but Musiala will no doubt be among the front runners sooner rather than later.

The midfielder hasn’t just excelled for Bayern, winning three Bundesliga titles and the UEFA Champions League.

He also inspired the fans for the German national team, played 17 international matches and scored one goal.

The Bayern teenager is expected to be part of Hansi Flick’s 26-man squad who is set to travel to Qatar for the 2022 FIFA World Cup at the end of November.

An impressive campaign in Qatar could mean plenty for Musiala to stake his claim as an eventual Ballon d’Or winner.
