Thomas Muller is one of that rare breed of footballers, whose displays makes them impossible to pigeon-hole. He has long been one of the most dangerous attacking midfielders in the world game thanks to his instinctive style, untrackable movement and ability to seemingly always make the right decisions even at full sprint.
Muller has already achieved astonishing success in his career, including winning the adidas Golden Boot for finishing as top scorer at the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ after netting five goals and providing three assists.
The likeable 24-year-old, who also won the Best Young Player Award that tournament, is an invaluable member of Germany coach Joachim Low’s squad due to his open, spontaneous and fun personality, as well as his unbending desire to win.
Muller has played for Bayern Munich since the age of ten and after making his breakthrough there as a professional under the guidance of coach Louis van Gaal, he has since gone on to win every title available in club football, including the UEFA Champions League and the FIFA Club World Cup.
The Bavarian native has also been a pillar of the national team for several years, and is commonly deployed both on the right and in the centre by Low. Muller found the target four times in ten games during Brazil 2014 qualifying and now has his sights set on winning the most sought-after trophy in world football in South America.
