Julian Nagelsmann praises Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting's season to date at Bayern Munich

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting's goalscoring form for Bayern Munich has been a revelation, especially as injuries to Sadio Mane, Leroy Sane and Thomas Muller have forced Julian Nagelsmann

As it stands, Choupo-Moting has tallied 11 dreams and 3 assists in 16 appearances in all competitions – scoring in every game since Bayern's 5-0 win over SC Freiburg on 16 October

It's safe to say now not many people predicted one of these Choupo-Moting dream comebacks this season, even though he served as a respectable backup to Robert

Lewandowski before his departure for Barcelona over the summer. Of course, Lewandowski's injury records, or lack thereof, also meant that Choupo noticed far less playing time

This season, however, the Cameroon international has shown that he is worth his weight in gold and could play a crucial role for the club as they continue

Speaking at a press conference from Bayern's school camp in Doha, Nagelsmann spoke about his admiration for Choupo-Moting, who believes he will play a pivotal position

“I have presented myself very well. Because he has been playing often, he has been in better physical shape. He is very common in the institution, he is an excellent man. 

If he continues his diligence, he too will play a big role in the second half of the season,” Nagelsmann said of the striker (@iMiaSanMia).
