“Has good balance”: Juwel Tel likes Bayern
Mathys Tel did surprisingly well in the Bayern ensemble. In his debut as a starter in the cup, he scored and otherwise impressed. It was important for his development that his colleagues “run in”.
In the first few weeks, so told Julian Nagelsman on Wednesday evening, Mathys Tel “sometimes overdid it”. The 17-year-old wanted to show himself in training with the top stars of FC Bayern Munich. He “showed a lot of courage, which I like,” said Nagelsmann. But he was so reluctant to play the ball.
“Fortunately, the team hygiene is so good that he got a run-in when he didn’t play,” said Nagelsmann after the 5-0 win in the first round game DFB Cup at Viktoria Köln and was happy about the quick learning effect: “Today there is no reason to complain. He never overdid it, played very seriously, scored a wonderful goal and had a great defensive situation when he ran 40 meters back. “
All in all a good package, with which the teenager has recommended and positioned himself for further assignments. “He’s an investment for the future,” said the coach: “It’s not that easy with 17 regular players FC Bayern to become. But we need him, that’s why we got him.”
Investing in Talent Tel
They should get up to 30 million euros Bavaria let the services of the exceptional talent cost. On Wednesday night, he hinted at why. Hasan Salihamidzic’s eyes light up when he talks about the offensive player. “He burns every day, works hard on himself and has all the prerequisites,” said the sporting director: “If he continues like this, he has a great future ahead of him.”
It will be “carefully built up”, assured Salihamidzic. But the head of sport, who came through the hiring himself as a player, likes the enthusiasm of the talent above all. “He has a footballing class that is innate. But he is also very ambitious, greedy and hard-working,” he said: “He also trains on non-training days. We like to see that. Especially with someone who is such a great talent. “
And even if there is still a long way to go to the regular place, the jewel, which was substituted on the first two matchdays, is an interesting alternative now. “In the beginning he tried a lot,” repeated Nagelsmann: “Now he has a good balance.”
