German Football Legend, Gerd Müller Dies At 75
The striker scored 68 goals in 62 appearances for West Germany, including the winning goal in the 1974 World Cup final against the Netherlands.
Muller also spent 15 years at Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, scoring 547 goals in 594 competitive games for the club.
“Today is a sad, black day for FC Bayern and all of its fans,” Bayern president Herbert Hainer said.
“Gerd Muller was the greatest striker there has ever been – and a fine person, a personality in world football. We are united in deep sorrow with his wife Uschi and his family.
“Without Gerd Muller, FC Bayern would not be the club we all love today. His name and the memory of him will live on forever.”
