The top goal scorer of Bayern Munich is Gerd Muller.Joined Bayern Munich in the 1964/1965 season, he played for the club for 15 seasons, during which time he scored 523 goals in 580 matches for Bayern Munich, making him a legendary goalscorer in the history of the club. Sadly, the legendary German striker passed away on 15 August 2021, leaving behind a legacy of magical proportions.
During his time at Bayern Munich, Gerd Muller set an incredible record for his talent in scoring goals. And what was that record? It was, of course, the league record for goals scored in a single season (40) in the 1971/1972 Bundesliga season. In the almost 40 years since then, several top scorers, including Pierrick Aubameyang, Mario Gomez and Stefan Kiessling, have tried to break this record, but without success. It was only last season that Polish striker Robert Lewandowski broke the record with 41 goals in a single season.
At national level, Gerd Muller made his debut on 12 October 1966 in a 2-0 defeat of Turkey, and in 1970, making his World Cup debut, he scored 10 goals in that tournament, with the exception of the third and fourth place finals where he failed to score.fter that World Cup, Gerd Muller helped Germany to win the 1972 UEFA European Football Championship and the 1974 World Cup.This was the highlight of his national team career.
