Munich - During the Bundesliga’s historic 50th season, Germany’s top-flight was awash with highly-coveted, young stars who caught the attention of scouts the world over, whilst regularly getting the record-breaking crowds on their feet. The 2013/14 campaign promises to be no different.
Mario Götze’s sensational performances promptly saw FC Bayern Munich pluck him from the grasp of title rivals Borussia Dortmund, while David Alaba set tongues wagging as a result of his unparalleled partnership with Franck Ribery, which bore fruit both domestically and in Europe, to name but a few examples.
