The game against FC Augsburg had finished, the championship trophy was awarded at the Allianz Arena and the Bundesliga season was officially over, but Robert Lewandowski still had one more task to complete. The top scorer went to the FC Bayern Museum for a very important meeting. In the presence of FC Bayern München AG CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, the man who exceeded Gerd Müller's legendary Bundesliga goal record in the last minute of the season presented his wife Uschi Müller with a special souvenir: a t-shirt with a personal message and the inscription "4ever Gerd", similar to the one he wore under his jersey for his 40th goal of the season last weekend in Freiburg. A token of his respect and admiration for "Der Bomber".
The location was a perfect fit for this moment, as all the records for the club and players are presented at the FC Bayern Museum. Lewandowski and Uschi Müller stood in the spot commemorating the record 1971/72 season: 101 footballs for the unmatched Bundesliga goals record, including the 40 scored by Gerd Müller, hang on the ceiling. Lewandowski's clear appreciation for Gerd Müller could be seen in the last official act of his Bayern season. "Unique" is the word that today's star striker always uses when he talks about his "predecessor".
Provisionally on 10 July: FC Bayern Museum to reopen
There was much to discuss between the striker and the striker's wife. The life and work of Bayern legend Müller has many layers. Not all of them are as well known as the 40-goal mark, which has been unattainable in the Bundesliga for almost 50 years. How many assists did Gerd Müller provide? Which goalkeeper did he particularly like to score against? Which records are still standing? All of these questions will be answered in the special exhibition “Goals for Eternity”, which was conceived on the occasion of his 75th birthday in November 2020. It will finally be open to visitors when the club museum reopens its doors after the European Championship on 10 July - as long as the rules and incidence values permit. See this and many other highlights!
