Müller awarded Bavarian Sports Prize

Pretty much everything is going right for Thomas Müller at the present time. The player scored goal after goal and completed match after match last season. He collected the Golden Boot as top scorer at the 2010 World Cup, and also received the Best Young Player accolade. The FCB shooting star had hardly set off on his well-earned summer vacation, before he was the recipient of yet another award, the Bavarian Sports Prize.

“You deserve this, and I congratulate you,” declared Louis van Gaal in his citation speech before handing Müller the award for 2010. However, the scene was not played out in front of a vast TV audience at the Saturday night gala, but rather at the studios at the Säbener Strasse, where Müller accepted the prize on Friday afternoon. The player did not attend the official gala.
