Thomas Muller has become the joint-most decorated player in German history after Bayern Munich’s UEFA Super Cup final win over Sevilla.
The annual meeting between the Champions League and Europa League winners took place at the Puskas Arena in Budapest on Thursday night.
Bayern won the game 2-1 after Javi Martinez came off the bench to score the winner in the 104th minute, after the game ended 1-1 in regular time. Sevilla’s Lucas Ocampos scored first from the penalty spot just 13 minutes in, and Leon Goretzka scored Bayern’s equaliser later in the first half.
Muller, who has spent his entire career to date on Bayern’s books, produced an industrious display upfront to help the Bundesliga champions pick up their fourth major trophy of the year, cementing his place in Germany’s hall of fame in the process.
The World Cup winner has picked up a grand total of 26 trophies at club level, which makes him the joint-most successful player in Germany’s history alongside former team-mate Bastian Schweinsteiger.
Muller will go onto grab the record outright if Bayern beat Borussia Dortmund in the DFL Supercup final next Wednesday, but they must first turn their attention to a Bundesliga clash against Hoffenheim this weekend.
