A product of Bayern Munich's academy, Thomas Müller is one of the Bundesliga club's most popular and versatile players. He is also pretty much a local boy, having grown up a few dozen kilometers south of Munich.
The sometimes awkward looking but usually effective Bayern Munich star made his debut with the Bundesliga club in 2008. He's played scores of games and won numerous honours with Germany's most successful club. He was also part of the 2014 side that won the World Cup in Brazil.
Germany general manager Oliver Bierhoff told DW he can't rule out a return to the national team for Thomas Müller. But he insisted the focus was still on youth, adding that the Euros delay could work in Germany's favor.
As the 2019-20 Bundesliga season moves into the home straight, most of the drama is in the race to qualify for Europe or avoid the drop. Two records were equaled and two were broken on the first matchday of June 2020.
Four games, 13 scored and six points each without really breaking a sweat. Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund have been mostly comfortable on their returns but both know they need another gear when they meet on Tuesday.
Hansi Flick has been appointed permanent Bayern Munich coach following a fine run of results as an interim. Flick appears to be perfect for the role, as much for his loyalty as his coaching ability.
On a weekend of big wins and even bigger fan choreographies, Bayern, Leipzig, Dortmund and Gladbach all impressed. There were also outstanding individual performances from Jadon Sancho, Thomas Müller and Wout Weghorst.
