Thomas Muller becomes most decorated player in German history after Bayern lift DFL Super Cup



   Thomas Muller has become the most dominated player in German record after Bayern Munich victory of German Super Cup win over Dortmund on Wednesday night.

 Their newly converted defensive midfielder follow the departure of Thiago Alcantara to Liverpool this summer. Kimmich who was playing as a right wing back for the club throughout last season before his duty was changed back to defensive midfielder struck in the 82th minute at the Allianz Arena to give Bayern Munich a 3-2 victory as they defeated last season's Bundesliga runners-up. 

 Tolisso and thomas Muller had earlier put Bayern Munich 2-0 in front, but Julian Brandt and Erling Haaland scored a equalizing goal to bring Dortmund level in a tense affair. 

 However, ultimately Joshua Kimmich's goal gave Bayern Munich the victory and in the process meant Thomas Muller has picked up his history of 27th trophy of his club career.  

Thomas Muller has won the Bundesliga nine times, the DFB-Pokal on six (6) occasions, two (2) Champions Leagues, (1) one World Cup, (1) one Club World Cup, (2) two UEFA Super Cups and now (6) six German Super Cups.

 The 31-years-old picked up his 26th trophy just last week when his Club defeated Sevilla 2-1 after extra time in the UEFA Super Cup, and he broke the history previously held by Bayern Munich great Bastian Schweinsteiger less than a week later. 

That win was surprisingly followed up by a 4-1 loss to Hoffenheim on Sunday in the Bundesliga, which snapped a 32-match unbeaten run for Bayern Munich.

 It has been a banner year for Munich, who won the treble last season before picking up two (2) trophies in the span of a week in the new 2020/21 Season.

  After Bayern's exertions in Budapest in the UEFA Super Cup, head coach Hansi Flick added after the Hoffenheim defeat that he could hardly blame his Club for being tired. 

  There were several issues for the defeat, but in terms of their willingness and desire, I cannot blame the Squad at all," Flick Said. "The mentality after the 120 minutes on Thursday with Sevilla was great. "We gave our opponents many chances and we were not as effective on the offensive side as we normally are. "Big compliments to Hoffenheim.

  The team showed a very strong performance, and also a compliment to [head coach] Sebastian Hoeness himself – flick squad was very well adjusted." 

The Club will now return to league action on Sunday when they face Hertha at the Allianz Arena.
