Muller is like a machine
Thomas Müller is “like a machine” and can offer a bit of everything to the Bayern Munich, noted Patrik Andersson. Muller has spent his whole professional career at the Allianz Arena. Significant success has been achieved in club and country, with the 30-year-old proving to be a model of consistency. Müller has reached a century of caps for Germany, taking in 534 appearances for Bayern Munich and moving on to 200 goals for the Bundesliga giants in one effort. The World Cup winner has nine title triumphs to his name and will be chasing the second Champions League crown on Sunday when he faces off against PSG. Andersson expects Müller to shine again in this competition and seemingly can do nothing there.
Thomas is a motivator and shines as a playmaker
The former Bayern defender told reporters: “Thomas Müller motivates me the most. Thomas runs like a machine. He shines as a playmaker and scorer, works on the defensive side, and speaks strongly with his teammates. Overall, Thomas has had an outstanding performance season. “But a very critical success factor is that Manuel Neuer is now returning to his all-time top level after his injury. In the early stages of the last matches against Barça (8-2) and Lyon (3-0), the players in front of him allowed several chances. If Neuer hadn’t brilliantly prevented the goals, now Bayern might not be in the final”. Bayern’s 2019-20 action got off to a slow start under Niko Kovac, leading to him being relieved of his coaching duties.
However, under Hansi Flick, a spark was found with a man who knows all about the demands of life under the brightest spotlights in Munich, helping to steer his side back to the very top of the game. “Hansi Flick’s experience is a big plus,” Andersson added. “The coach was a Bayern player. He knows the club inside out, and then learned a lot from many positions at the DFB. And most superiorly, Flick has the absolute trust of his team. Everyone in the squad follows him. It’s critical. This season, Hansi Flick has strengthened exactly the players who needed it to get back into their absolute top form. The best example is Müller. He feels that his coach is a thousand percent behind him, and he can do whatever he wants.”
