A German advanced striker who shone in the 1970s, Gerd Muller, now 74, suffers from dementia and is in a very weak state, according to his wife.
«He barely eats and can barely get up. He stays in bed almost 24 hours a day, ”he said in statements to the Bild newspaper.
Uschi Muller also revealed that the former striker communicates practically only through his eyes, stressing: “He was always a fighter, brave, throughout his life. It is also happening now. »
Nicknamed the ‘Bomber’, Muller, who turns 75 this Tuesday, has scored 68 goals in 62 games for the then Federal Republic of Germany. At Bayern Munich, where he played between 1964 and 1979, he scored 398 goals in 453 games.
