Jesper Lindstrom: Meet the Thomas Muller regen plying his trade in Bundesliga

Germany’s Bundesliga has never faced a shortage of producing attacking talent with names like Erling Haaland, Florian Wirtz and Giovanni Reyna.

It looks like the German league has produced another gem of talent in young Danish attacking midfielder Jesper Lindstrom who plays for Eintracht Frankfurt.

In his debut season for the Eagles at the age of 22, the Dane has 5 goals and 5 assists across all competitions and all his attacking output has come in the last 18 games when the midfielder has truly hit top form, according to whoscored.com.

With Frankfurt enduring a tough season in the league being way down in 10th now after finishing 5th last season, Lindstrom has been one of the few positives for Oliver Glasner’s men.

As the team are now focusing on seeing success in the Europa League, Lindstrom’s impact has been crucial of late as the Dane was heavily involved against Real Betis in the Round of 16 where he also assisted a goal in the first leg.

Apart from his footballing talent, Lindstrom has also turned heads for his on the pitch attitude and energy which is eerily similar to one of Bundesliga’s household names in Thomas Muller.

Lindstrom has been spotted emulating Muller’s celebrations after scoring by fans on multiple occasions. The most notable one came following his man of the match performance against Borrusia Monchengladbach in December where he racked up a goal and an assist for the Eagles.

Playing in a similar position as Muller, it is possible that the Dane sees him as a role model in this early stage of his career.

In the past, Muller has opted for his trademark celebration of bellowing to the skies with clenched fists, especially during Bayern’s destruction of Barcelona in their title-winning UCL campaign in the 2020/21 season.

This kind of spirit and energy along with Lindstrom’s quality on the ball is precisely what Frankfurt are in need of right now as they look to salvage their season with European glory in the Europa League.
