Gerd Mueller gets Messi’s No. 10 Barcelona shirt

Lionel Messi has sent a signed Barcelona shirt to former Bayern
Munich striker Gerd Mueller, whose scoring record he broke last
year.

Bayern released a photograph Thursday with Mueller holding the
shirt. Messi wrote on the shirt: ”To Gerd Mueller, with respect
and admiration, a hug.”

Messi scored 91 goals last year, breaking Mueller’s 40-year-old
record. Mueller scored 85 goals in 1972.

Messi received a record fourth FIFA Player of the Year award
earlier this month.
