Bayern Munich midfielder Jamal Musiala has withdrawn from the Germany squad with a back injury, the Bundesliga club have announced.

The 20-year-old had missed Bayern’s last two matches with a hamstring issue but returned to training earlier this week.

Germany face Japan and France in international friendlies on Saturday and next Tuesday respectively.

A statement from the club read: “Jamal Musiala will not join up with the Germany national team as planned for their friendly matches against Japan (September 9) and France (September 12) after the Bayern attacking midfielder withdrew from the squad due to a back complaint.”

The news comes a day after Musiala was nominated for the best young player award at this year’s Ballon d’Or ceremony.
