Die Roten has dominated the German league for years, so we have tried to make a list of the best Bayern Munich players of all time and see who helped him in his great success. As the most successful German team to date, Die Bayern has made its mark on world-class players in recent years, some of them just sports stories. Bayern Munich’s players are the winners of the Ballon d’Ors, so we think it would be good to see who are the best Bayern Munich players so far. Bayern’s recent Champions League trophy, which came at the end of an extraordinary treble-winning season, for the second time in the club’s history, makes us wonder who could be the greatest player in Bayern Munich’s history.
Greatest players of Bayern Munich history:
With 30 Bundesliga titles, 20 DFB Pokal trophies and 6 Champions League titles, some of Bayern Munich’s best players are set to become world-class. So we’ve ranked them below:
10: Robert Lewandowski
Recently, Thomas Muller jokingly called Robert Lewandowski “Lewandowski” and we think the nickname is appropriate because it is a goal scoring machine. Don’t get me wrong, Leva is more than just a goal scorer, because he can help them and at the same time he has scored and he is also very good at competing with players, but at what rate He scores and is absolutely hungry to show that he can only surpass the legends of the game like Gerd Muller or Messi and Ronaldo.
Lewandowski’s career at Bayern Munich began much later than some of those on the list, as he began his career in his native Poland and has since become not only Bayern but also his biggest rival. Bundesliga went to Dortmund.
After winning Bundesliga titles and other trophies, he joined Bayern for free in 2014 and has been winning trophies and scoring left and right ever since. With Bayern, he has won 6 Bundesliga titles and 3D DFB Pokals, most recently beating PSG in the Champions League final to complete Bayern Munich’s second European Championship, where he Almost single-handedly took his team to the final by scoring 15 goals.
He had previously lost in the final of the competition to Dortmund, another winner of the treble in the 2012-133 season, Bayern. Leva has scored 251 goals in 294 appearances with Bayern Munich, is sure to improve in the coming years and is the second highest goalscorer in Bayern Munich so far, behind the legendary Guard Muller. Leva is a player who wants to succeed and he wants to be a legend and he has proved that he is the best Bayern Munich player of all time in less time than any other player on our list and who knows, he Maybe some players will be left behind in the years to come!
9: Manuel Neuer
Among the three best goalkeepers on our list of the best Bayern Munich players of our time is their current captain Manuel Neuer . The man who is primarily responsible for a new style of goalkeeping as he became the first goalkeeper in modern times to take on the role of sweeper. Neuer began his career at Schalke 04 and after winning 1 DFB Pokal he moved to Bayern in 2011-12 where he established himself as the greatest goalkeeper of his generation and possibly so far.
Since joining Bayern Munich, Neuer has won 23 trophies (8 Bundesliga, 2 Champions League and 4 DFB Pokal ) and, like his teammate Thomas Muller, has won two Champions League titles this season. At the end of the day, only these two Bayern Munich players have ever been the biggest players. He has also won the 2014 World Cup with Germany, and has made his most significant savings in the final and ensured Germany’s victory with a clean sheet.
Neuer is known for his ability to come out of his goal and sweep long balls that the opposition has played behind their defenders. He is very good with both his legs and has a special arrogance with the ball on his feet. In fact, on these occasions he has helped many goals by playing long balls from behind. In goal however this is a completely different story because you press hard to find any goalkeeper with a level of nervousness. Will be given Nauer has managed to save even the most dangerous one-on-one situation that has helped Bayern on a number of important occasions, most recently in the final of the 2019-20 Champions League season. With all his qualities as a goalkeeper, as well as his leadership, both on and off the pitch, he will forever be one of Bayern Munich’s best players.
8: Thomas Muller
The most decorated German player of all time does not need an introduction because he is well-known and well-loved among football fans today but let’s see how Thomas Muller respected us all and fit The top bowlers in the world enjoyed their careers. Muller is a product of Bayern Munich’s own youth academy, and he returned to the first team when Louis van Gaal became Bayern’s manager in the 2009-10 season. Bayern and he were in the grip of a treble but lost the Champions League title to Inter Milan. Although Muller became one of 13 players to win the European Championship twice. He has also won 9 Bundesliga titles and 6 DFB Pokal. After winning the World Cup Golden Boot at the age of 21, he also excelled internationally.
As we have mentioned, he is the most sensational German player, having won 27 titles, leaving behind 26 of the Bastian Chevin Stiger. Despite his stupid behavior, Muller is actually one of the smartest players of his generation, known for his extraordinary position and movement.
Some people want to call the position he plays the “Raumdeuter” because he is able to use the space that gives him his deadly effect. Although he is a natural goal scorer, he is an even better goal scorer, as he often has more assistants each season.
In the 2019-20 season, he recorded an incredible 21 assists, a record, shared by Lionel Messi in Europe’s top five leagues. Although he did not win individual trophies like some of those on the list, there is no denying that Thomas Muller is one of the greatest players in Bayern Munich’s history. He represents the winning mentality for which Bayern Munich is known. He is a player who always guides by example, works hard to get every ball, creates scoring opportunities and achieves his ultimate goal, winning in Bayern’s shirt.
7: Oliver Kahn
Usually the strongest strikers terrorize the opposition defenders and goalkeepers but with Oliver Kahn the opposite was true, as there were only a handful of strikes that dared to counter them. The priest was pure flesh. Sometimes it was as if he was so angry that someone shot him in the head that he had to go and save him, which he usually does. He became restless when his goal was in danger and usually tilted his backline to let it happen. The priest was a resident of Karlsruhe and for many years before joining Byron he represented Karlsruhe SC, where over the years, he named all his charisma and his command “Der Titan”.
His quality helped Bayern to an invincible victory, as he himself became the most decorated German player ever, as well as Bayern Munich’s greatest player ever.
Kahn won 8 Bundesliga titles, 6 DFB Pokal, 1 Champions League and 1 UEFA Cup with Bayern, winning every trophy that a German club could do. But perhaps the height of his career was at the 2002 World Cup, where Germany did not want to reach the final, largely because of Kahn’s incredible performance as goalkeeper and team captain. Kahn scored just one goal to reach the final, and despite Kahn’s mistake in the final, losing to Brazil and Germany in a one-goal final, he was awarded the tournament’s Golden Ball, the award given to the best player. went. To this day, he is the only goalkeeper to have won the Golden Ball of any World Cup, and this is one of the reasons why he is one of Bayern Munich’s best players.
First on our list is the legendary Ballon d’Or striker Karl- Heinz Rummenigge, who played for Bayern for a decade before heading to Inter Milan and later to Italy to be surveyed in Switzerland at the end of his career. Although his best years were definitely with Bayern, where he won 2 Ballon d’Or trophies, and he became one of the best Bayern Munich players of all time. First of all, he played for the amateur team Borussia Lippstadt where he played as a teenager and then joined Bayern at the age of 19.
He was known for his excellent technique as he could easily save many opponents in the past. It was later in his career that he, under the tutelage of Bayern coach Pal Csernai, became the best goal scorer and won the Bundesliga top goal scorer award three times.
Rummenigge was part of the great Bayern Munich team of the 70’s and won two Champions League titles in 1975 and 1976, but since it was early in his Bayern career in which he played A small part. The real height of his power came in the early 1980s, where he won two consecutive Bundesliga titles and two DFB Pokal trophies.
He also won the 1980 Euro. He had no luck with the World Cup, although he lost two finals in 1982 and 1986.Rummenigge represented Bayern Munich in 422 matches and scored 217 goals, making him the third-best goal scorer in Bayern Munich’s history. He was awarded two consecutive Ballon d’Ors in 1980 and 1981 for his achievements with Bayern and Germany, consolidating his place among Bayern Munich’s best players forever.
Philip Lahm is on the far right, as we have discussed before, and he has achieved everything in football by becoming a Bayern Munich player. He had to work hard to achieve this status, even harder than anyone considering his stature, and he took a loan from Bayern Munich’s youth team to gain more experience. After two years of successful loan spells at Stuttgart, Lahm returned to Bayern and began his journey to greatness. The Magic Dwarf was called Lahm, played on both sides as a fullback, and later in his career he also played as a defensive midfielder.
He was great at performing well in every position he played, especially in the right back, where he mostly cut in and passed from side to side.
Lahm had the best level of work, partly because he became the best Bayern Munich player ever. He was like a machine, moving from bottom to top, either to attack or to stop the opposition. He represented Bayern in 517 competitive matches and scored 17 goals, while winning the award. Along with Bayern, Lahm won 8 Bundesliga titles, 6 DFB Pokal and 1 Champions League which was one of the Bayern Tribals. He was also very successful with the German national team as he won the 2014 World Cup as captain and made his name in football history forever. Lahm also led Bayern for many years, and through the many successes he has achieved, he has become one of the best Bayern players ever.
The word “legend” is widely used in football, but when it is used to describe players like Sepp Maier, it is well deserved. Because he is one of the best Bayern Munich players of all time, as well as one of the national team of German legends. A native of Bavaria, Maier spent his entire career at Bayern, starting at a young age and making the first team. He soon joined the West German national team, appearing as an unused substitute in the 1966 World Cup. But as the 70’s approached, the world saw Germany dominate the football stage, as both Bayern and West Germany won everything there.
Mayer won 4 DFB Pokal trophies as well as 4 Bundesliga titles, but his early victories with Bayern led to three consecutive Champions League titles between 1972 and 1974 (then called the European Cup) in the history of Bayern Munich. Became the biggest player. He also won the Euro 1972 and 1974 World Cups with the West German national team. Maier was an invincible wall in both Bayern Munich, which helped the Golden Generation of both teams achieve an invincible victory and for that he will always be remembered as a story of the game.
One of the greatest central midfielders of all time, Lothar Matthaus played for many teams during his career but spent more than half of his career as a pillar in his midfield line at Bayern Munich. First as a central midfielder and later as a sweeper in a more defensive role, he helped Bayern win many trophies and established himself as one of Bayern best players. Interestingly, his career did not start with Bayern but with his rival club, Borussia Monchengladbach.
He began his career at Glade Beach in 1979 and stayed with her until 1984, although he did not win any major honors with Glade Beach, becoming part of Germany’s 1980 Euro squad that won the competition. I succeeded. He joined Bayern in 1984, making his first appearance at the club, winning three Bundesliga titles and a DFB Pokal. Bayern also reached the final of the Champions League in 1987, but despite taking a 1-0 lead for the majority of the game, conceded two late goals and lost the final to Porto.
Matthaus next chapter was in Inter, where he won the Serie A and UEFA Cups, but the height of his career at the 1990 World Cup, where he led Germany to World Cup completion and In this success he had achieved his success. Mathes will return to Bayern 2 years later this year, and this time he will stay for 8 years, where he has won 4 more Bundesliga titles as well as 2 DFB Pokal and the UEFA Cup.
Mathas, who was a prominent goal scorer in his early days as a player, became a more defensive player in his later years. His role as a sweeper helped build a strong shield against Byron’s defense, an integration into his success over the years. As the winner of the Ballon d’Or, a legend of German football and the game in general, Mathas will forever be one of Bayern Munich’s best players.
Earlier in this list we talked about Lewandowski and how he is a round machine. Well, in the history of football, no one deserves this title more than the legendary Gerd Muller because he was born to do only one thing and that was to score goals. There were a lot of legendary players from West Germany and Bayern during the 70’s, some of whom are on the list, but the overwhelming success of these teams could never have been achieved without Muller’s goals. Muller began his career in his hometown of Nordlingen but soon moved to Bayern, where he remained for 14 seasons. He managed to score more than 30 goals in all of these competitions for 12 years. We highlighted his success as the first goal scorer and how he is one of the players to have won the most individual trophies, including 2 European Golden Boots and Ballon d’Or in 1970. There was an award.
Jared Muller has won every trophy he has ever played with Bayern and West Germany. Along with Bayern, he won 4 Bundesliga titles and 4 DFB Pokal trophies, as well as 3 consecutive European Cups (Champions League) and European Cup Winners’ Cup from 1974 to 1976. He scored 565 goals in 607 appearances for Byron, earning him the award for 7 Bundesliga top scorers. And with the national team, he scored 68 goals in 62 matches, winning the 1972 Euro and the 1974 World Cup. Gerd Muller’s position as the greatest goal scorer so far can only be compared to that of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, and yet it can be argued that Muller is a better game, according to which The goal ratio is better. He is undoubtedly one of the best Bayern Munich players of all time if not the best and he comes in this list or second.
Who else is on the list of Bayern Munich’s all-time greats, the great Franz Beckenbauer?Beckenbauer is also by far the greatest German player and, unlike many of the players on the list, his career at Germany and Bayern Munich is due to the presence of his command and the beauty of Der Kaiser or the Emperor. The effect was not over. Career, as he led both teams to great success as managers. But his playing days began in Bayern Munich’s youth system, where he gradually made his way to the first team and spent most of his best days as a player there. He started his career as a midfielder but will later move to a role now known as Sweeper or Libero.
He is widely credited with inventing the role of sweeper in football. As a player, he won 4 Bundesliga titles with Bayern Munich and 4 DFB Pokal.
He was also the captain of a great generation of Bayern Munich players, including Mayer, Gerd Muller and Rim Mange, and won three consecutive European Cup (Champions League) titles from 1974 to 1976. Germany won the European Glory at Euro 1972 and then two years later at the 1974 World Cup, making it one of the greatest footballers ever. After becoming Bayern Munich’s all-time best player, he then moved on to management, where he became one of only three players to win the World Cup, both as a player and as a manager. He also led Byron to a Bundesliga and UEFA Cup title a few years later. Beacon Bauer has won 2 Ballon d’Or trophies during his career in every trophy available at Byron and Germany, and he has been able to make a huge impact on the game of football. There will be no more players for Bayern Munich or Germany after that.
