Thomas Muller has heaped praise on “talented” club colleague Eric Maxim Choupo Moting, after the 32-year-old’s sensational form for the Bavarian this season has earned him praises across the board.
The Cameroon star has repaid Julian Nagelsman’s faith with a sensational form in front of goal, scoring 16 goals and provided four assists in 25 games.
Ahead of a crucial UEFA Champions League clash against his former employer’s this Wednesday at the Allianz Arena Muller had some kind words for his fellow forward.
“I have not forgotten the days people use to mock at him in Paris. Those who were doing that don’t know football. They didn’t give him enough time though scored important goals for PSG. However, he is very important to us,” Muller emphasized during the pre-match conference on Tuesday.
Choupo’s importance was manifested in the reversed fixture as he had a hand in the lone goal Kingsley Coman scored to hand Bayern a one goal advantage going into tonight’s battle for a quarter-final ticket.
Last year Choupo scored a brace in a quarter-final game against PSG. He will be looking forward to a repeat performance against the club he was part of for two years and helped achieve the runners-up position in the Champions League in 2020 before joining Bayern Munich.
