Müller: It's about time I won the thing

Postby FCBayernNews » Tue May 21, 2013 5:40 pm

Thomas Müller stayed behind after training on Tuesday to practise penalties - and how. The striker took 50 or 60 spot kicks, first against Lukas Raeder, then Manuel Neuer. "It can't hurt," he later told FCB.tv. Just days ahead of the biggest game of the season, Müller is leaving nothing to chance, as he is utterly determined to lay hands on the trophy after his third Champions League final.

Thomas took a starring role in both previous attempts at the top European prize. He was poised to cancel out Inter Milan's opening goal in the 2010 final but was denied by keeper Julio Cesar. In 2012, he opened the scoring against Chelsea with just minutes remaining, but again had to watch the opposition claim glory. "For me personally, it's about time I won the thing," he said, "if you're beaten three times, you're branded a loser."

Müller himself has made a vital contribution to FCB earning another attempt at the trophy in double quick time. Immediately after last year's defeat in the final on home soil, he sent a text message to the whole of the squad, urging everyone to even greater efforts in the new season. He is Munich's top scorer in the Champions League this term with eight goals and two assists, and his haul this season equals his total in four previous European campaigns.

In Messi's footsteps

"I can't complain this season and I hope it just carries on," said the man who is the club's overall top scorer in all competitions this season with 22 goals. If he hits the target on Saturday, he would join a very exclusive club, as only Raul, Samuel Eto'o and Lionel Messi have scored in two Champions League finals. However, the 23-year-old is not one to dwell on stats and curiosities: "The fact I know where the goal is isn't anything new," he said.

"Thomas Müller will play a very important role in the final," observed Jupp Heynckes, "he's tireless, one of our leading characters, and a big factor in why we're so outstanding both in attack and defence. Thomas is having a superb season. There's no way we'd leave him out of the team, he's not injury prone, and he's a hard runner, agile, and relaxed when you need to be relaxed."

Nor is Thomas about to lose his cool in the build-up to the final. "I'm not going to have my style cramped, I'll do my thing totally normally," he announced, and you can be sure he will keep his word. Matthias Sammer for one is convinced: "He has something like a golden touch. His entire personality symbolises Bayern Munich." In other words, he's a winner, who's also leaving nothing to chance.
