No licence, no car – mum drives Bayern starlet Musiala to training

BERLIN (AFP) – Bayern Munich starlet Jamal Musiala has revealed that his mother has to drive him to training while the 18-year-old works on getting his driving licence.

“So far I’ve been very happy that my mum has been so nice as to drive me to training,” Musiala told magazine Sport Bild.

“I’m currently working towards getting my driving licence and I’m really looking forward to driving myself soon.”

Last Friday, Musiala signed a five-year contract – his first as a professional – with the club world champions, which he described as a “childhood dream come true”. Just a week after his 18th birthday, Musiala signed the deal which will reportedly earn him EUR5 million (USD6 million) per year. Bayern’s players each receive a car provided by the club’s sponsor.
