In Bayern Munich’s 3-1 victory over Borussia Mönchengladbach, Thomas Müller earned his 500th win for the club.
In classic Müller fashion, he provided the assist to Aleksandar Pavlović to level the score right before halftime. Müller also forced a goalkeeper error in the 70th minute that resulted in Harry Kane burying the game winner.
The locker room presented Müller with a one of a kind jersey, swapping out his #25 jersey for #500. Müller tried to downplay the celebration, but Manuel Neuer and the rest of the squad understood the significance of the moment.
In his sixteen years as a professional with Bayern, Müller also leads the club in most assists and jokes cracked (unofficial stat). By the end of this season, he should also break Sepp Maier’s record of appearances with the club.
