German football legend Gerd Muller dies at 75

Germany’s football legend Gerd Muller has died at the age of 75.

One of the best strikers in history, Muller scored 68 goals in 62 appearances for West Germany, including the winning goal in the 1974 World Cup final against the Netherlands.

He also scored 547 goals in 594 competitive games during 15 years at Bundesliga giants Bayern.

“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. He is survived by 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.”

Muller, a two times German footballer of the year, won the Golden Boot for netting 10 goals at the 1970 World Cup and also won the Ballon d’Or that year.
