Thomas Müller is already a great icon of Bayern Munich and the management is counting on him for the future. Club president Herbert Hainer has now let it be known that he wants to keep the reigning German champion until the very end. He will then smoothly continue his cooperation with him in the management.
Müller – an icon of recent years
Müller has been with the Munich club since 2000, having worked his way up from the youth selections to the A-team. He did so in the summer of 2009 and shone virtually immediately. In his first full season in Bayern’s main team, he scored 19 goals and 16 assists in 52 games and celebrated his first league title.
After that, he and his teammates went on a two-season fast, and since the 2012/13 season, in which Bayern won the treble, the Bundesliga has known no other winner than Munich. Müller also won 2 Champions League victories and 6 DFB-Pokal victories.
But probably his greatest success came in 2014, when the Germans won the World Cup in Brazil. Moreover, he was one of the key men of the German team at that championship. He helped to win gold with 5 goals and 3 assists.
From the field to management
In September, Müller celebrated his 34th birthday, and logically there is talk of his end. ” Thomas is an absolute icon of Bayern and a player who has a lot of merit here. We all want him to finish his career in Munich.”
“I am optimistic and hope he will stay with us. I think Thomas knows what he has at Bayern and we know what we have in him. As I said, I would be happy if he ends up here and then accepts another role at Bayern because he is a legend here,” Hainer said in an interview with Bild.
Bayern’s record at Bayern
Moreover, Müller is very likely to reach one more first for Bayern, as he is only 25 games away from equalling Sepp Maier’s 706 games played for the Munich side.
He is Bayern’s third top scorer after his namesake Gerd Müller (568 goals) and Robert Lewandowski (344 goals). With 261 assists, he is the best passer in the club’s history.
He is also a very decent player, having received only one red card in 681 games, or twice, but in one case he had to leave the field after a second yellow card. In all that time, he collected 36 of them.
