  1. A little know feat of Müller is that, when he scored on his debut at Bayern in Regionalliga Süd (18.10.1964 in a 11:2 win against Freiburger FC), he went on to score further 24 goals in 12 consecutive matches. Not bad for a 19 year old, even though the opposition was less than stellar.

    • Also little known: when Müller was born in Nördlingen in 1945 there were rumours that his father was a gypsy. All of that however remains unconfirmed and only a little-town rumour.
