Gerd Mueller gets Messi’s No. 10 Barcelona shirt

Lionel Messi paid homage to another fellow football legend, German striker Gerd Mueller, by sending a signed Barcelona shirt to the former Bayern Munich star.

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.
