Six-time Bundesliga winner has set his sights on the club all-time record of eight titlesWritten by – Nikolay Nikolov, June 16, 2017.
This season Thomas Müller won his sixth Bundesliga title with his team Bayern Munich. Now, the 27-year-old is looking forward to equalizing the club record of eight crowns held by few of the club’s legends- Mehmet Scholl, Oliver Kahn, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Philipp Lahm.
Müller signed for Bayern when he was just 11 years old and spent the next decade working his way to the first team. He became one of the club’s most iconic and successful players being still at the peak of his career.
His trophy winning list also includes four DFB Cups, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, FIFA World Cup and the World Cup Golden Boot.
Looking forward to break the club record, Müller couldn’t hide his desire while talking to reporters about it.Kane: Spurs out of excuses after shock Carabao Cup exit Andrew Smyth – Harry Kane concedes that Tottenham only have themselves to blame following a shock Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Colchester United.
“I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to break the record,” he admitted in a recent interview with Sport Bild. “My contract with Bayern runs until 2021. If I haven’t reached eight Bundesliga titles by then, then clearly something has gone wrong. Our opponents don’t exactly gift-wrap the title for us, but we definitely want to win it every season.”
Recently, the retiring Philipp Lahm pointed Müller as one of the likeliest candidates to succeed him as club captain.
“Normally, either Manuel Neuer or Thomas Müller will become captain,” Lahm said, after hanging up his boots in May. “Their career paths have been similar to mine. They have Bayern Munich in their hearts and are leaders on and off the pitch.”
Remarkably, Müller has missed only 18 Bundesliga games over the last eight seasons. Moreover, Bayern have never lost a league game in which he has scored.
In the 2016-17 Bundesliga campaign, he scored 5 goals and provided 12 assists.
