'Can't believe we let him go': Chelsea fans wowed by their ex-player's CL display last night

Chelsea supporters had mixed feelings when they learned their former academy star Jamal Musiala had scored for Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Bayern swept aside Lazio 4-1 in their first-leg clash, with Musiala getting his name on the scoresheet.

He became the Bundesliga champion’s youngest ever Champions League goalscorer at just 17-years of age.

Musiala was raised through Chelsea’s youth system for almost a decade before he moved to Munich.

After seeing his historic goal yesterday, Blues fans couldn’t help but curse what could’ve been for their club.


The teenage sensation has been at Bayern for two years, having spent majority of his youth at Cobham.

However, having been born in Stuttgart to a German mother, the move back to his homeland seemed like a natural step.

It has been an extraordinary season Musiala. He has already played 27 times for Bayern, scoring four goals.

There had been a tug of war between England and Germany to secure his national allegiance.

Today, Musiala decided to commit his international footballing loyalty to Die Mannschaft.

Aidy Boothroyd had planned to include him in his U21 squad in anticipation for next month’s European Championships.

Instead, Joachim Low is now likely to call up him to Germany’s senior side after his decision.
