Thomas Müller, born 13 September 1989, is a German footballer who plays for Bayern Munich and the German national team. 

Müller plays as a midfielder or forward, and has been deployed in a variety of attacking roles – as an attacking midfielder, second striker, and on either wing. 

He has been praised for his positioning, team work and stamina, and has shown consistency in scoring and creating goals.

A product of Bayern's youth system, he made his first-team breakthrough in the 2009–10 season after Louis van Gaal was appointed as the main coach. 

He played almost every game as the club won the league and cup double and reached the Champions League final. 

This accomplishment earned Müller a call-up to the German national team. 

At the 2010 World Cup he scored five goals in six appearances as Germany finished in third place. 

He was named the Best Young Player of the tournament and won the Golden Boot as the tournament's top scorer, with five goals and three assists. 

He also scored Bayern's only goal in the Champions League final in 2012, with the team eventually losing on penalties.


Playing style

Müller's role can be described as an attacking all-rounder, a player able to play in a variety of forward positions. 

As he came through the youth system, he was seen primarily as a midfielder, but since breaking into the first-team he has been used in more forward roles. 

Both Bayern Munich and the Germany national team usually play a 4-2-3-1 formation, and Müller is most often part of the three attacking midfielders behind the central striker. 

He can play in any of the attacking midfield roles but usually plays in the center for Bayern Munich, and on the right for Germany.

He has been used as an out-and-out striker on occasion.

Müller has been praised for his maturity, pace, technique, awareness and positioning.

He has been particularly noted for his composure; Germany manager Joachim Löw said he is "impervious to pressure" and former Bayern manager Louis van Gaal said he has tremendous mental strength.

A consistent scorer and creator of goals, he describes himself as a player who can find gaps in the opposition defence but not particularly good at dribbling or one-on-ones.

Müller describes this role as Raumdeuter, a term that translates to "interpreter of space".

During 2014 World Cup, Germany manager Joachim Löw stated that Müller "is a very unorthodox player and you can't really predict his lines of running, but he has one aim and that is 'how can I score a goal?".
