Germany and Bayern Munich legend Gerd Muller passed away on Sunday. Muller was famous for his goalscoring exploits for both club and country. 

 

At International level, he scored 68 goals in just 62 appearances for West Germany, including the winner against the Netherlands (Holland) in the 1974 World Cup, earning him the nickname ‘Der Bomber’.

Muller was also one of the greatest players to have worn the Bayern Munich kit, notching an impressive 398 goals in 453 games for the Bavarian club.

“The news of Gerd Muller’s death deeply saddens us all. He’s one of the greatest legends in the history of FC Bayern, his achievements are unrivalled to this day and will forever be a part of the great history of FC Bayern and all of German football” Bayern CEO Oliver Kahn said in a statement.
