Munich: Germany and Bayern Munich’s legendary striker Gerd Muller passed away at 75 on Sunday.

As a footballer, Muller is the winning team member of the 1972 European Championship, the 1974 World Cup, a Club World Cup, three European Cups, a European Cup-Winners’ Cup. He has four Bundesliga titles and four German Cups to his credit. He also won the Ballon d’Or in 1970.

His total of 365 goals in Bundesliga remains a German record. His single-season best of 40 goals was only beaten by countrymate Robert Lewandowski.

“Today is a sad, black day for FC Bayern and all of its fans. Gerd Muller was the greatest striker there has ever been — and a fine person, a personality in world football,” Bayern president Herbert Hainer was quoted as saying via a statement by ESPN.

“We are united in deep sorrow with his wife Uschi and his family. Without Gerd Müller, FC Bayern would not be the club we all love today. His name and the memory of him will live on forever,” he said.
