“The news of Gerd Muller’s death deeply saddens us all,” Bayern chief executive Oliver Kahn said.

“He’s one of the greatest legends in the history of FC Bayern, his achievements are unrivalled to this day and will forever be a part of the great history of FC Bayern and all of German football.

“As a player and a person, Gerd Muller stands for FC Bayern and its development into one of the biggest clubs in the world like no other. Gerd will forever be in our hearts.”

Muller won the Golden Boot for netting 10 goals at the 1970 World Cup and also won the Ballon d’Or that year.

He then helped West Germany win the European Championship two years later.

The striker scored 68 goals in 62 appearances for West Germany, including the winning goal in the 1974 World Cup final against the Netherlands.

Muller also spent 15 years at Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, scoring 547 goals in 594 competitive games for the club.

“Today is a sad, black day for FC Bayern and all of its fans,” Bayern president Herbert Hainer said.
