The seventh day monitors the European Nations Cup top scorers throughout history in reports that highlight the features of the lives of these players in the world of football.

Only one striker in the history of the Bundesliga managed to score 40 goals in one season until they were kidnapped by the Polish Lewandowski Gerd Muller, Bayern's small-bodied striker who set a record in 1972 in the German League and this number remains to this day.

He was the league's top scorer on seven occasions (1967-1969-1970-1972-1973-1974-1978). He was the top scorer in Europe twice (1970-1972) and twice the best player in Germany (1967-1969) and was named the best player in Europe in 1970.

Müller combined all these titles with Bayern. He started with Bayern in 1964 after starting his career with the club Nordlingen in his home city, where he started with them in 1945. He completed his apprenticeship as a weaver while living in his home.

But Muller was always living and breathing football, and he succeeded with Bayern as they were the perfect pair for success. Coach Zlatkoa Cesek Kaikovsky was Muller's biggest supporter, as his playing style was an attacking style that suited his short and fat striker as he liked to call him or the footballing prodigy, Muller had an immeasurable talent for scoring goals.

And he developed his performance to perfection, and Gerd Muller became an example of the ideal striker in the penalty area, with all the ingredients sufficient to intimidate all goalkeepers. Gold in the sixties and seventies.

He won the nickname "Bomber" with the Bavarian club on four occasions (1969-1972-1973-1974) and the DFB Cup (1966-1967-1969-1971) and won three European Union Cups (1974-1975- 1976), the European Cup Winners' Cup (1967) and the World Cup (1976). “If it weren’t for him, we would now be living under an old wooden roof,” Franz Beckenbauer said of his colleague, who was always humble and forthright.

Gerd Muller left the Bavarian team in 1979 and played his last season for the Fort Lauderdale Strikers in the American League before ending his career full of achievements. is back
