Malik Tillmann is drawn to the prospect of changing the national team from Germany to the United States – Kicker revealed.
The attacking midfielder has made his way through the various youth groups at Bayern Munich over the past few seasons and thanks to that he was included in the Bavarians’ first team ahead of the current tournament.
The 19-year-old was gradually brought into the game at the highest level by coach Julian Nagelsmann, evidenced by the fact that he appeared only seven times in the ongoing competition.
However, this situation does not pose any obstacle to his regular call-up to the German national youth team. Recently, Malik Tillman has slowly begun to settle into the Under-21 squad, in which he has scored three goals in three matches played so far.
The gradual increase in the form of the offensive midfielder was not tolerated not only by envoys from other clubs, but also by the American Football Association. Kicker revealed that local football representatives are trying to persuade the young player to play in their national team and tempt him with the possibility of going to the next World Cup.
The person in question himself does not hide that the first contacts on this matter took place, but at least for the time being he does not intend to make any binding decisions.
– It is true that the Americans called me. But I’m not here with the U-21 team by chance. “I feel good here and I will continue to feel good,” said the 19-year-old, who accepted the national team’s first appointment from the USA but only then went to German training camps.
