Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has said that
Müller has been an intrinsic part of the Bayern side since his debut ten years ago, and has assisted four goals in his seven Bundesliga appearances this season despite the German champions' indifferent start to their title defence.
Though he has appeared in every one of their domestic matches, only three have come from the start, as it appears he has lost his automatic starting spot to Philippe Coutinho. The Barcelona loanee has occupied
“The relationship between Thomas and Bayern is totally intact and will remain an important part of our club.
“If Thomas would sit contentedly on the bench, he would be in the wrong club.
Müller is closing in on 500 appearances as a Bayern player, a milestone he will hit with five more outings for the Bundesliga champions. In that time, he has netted 186 goals and registered 171 assists, helping them to eight league titles in ten years, so it is easy to see why Rummenigge is keen to keep him in place.
