Robert Lewandowski paid a very special tribute on his social media channels on Tuesday night. On Gerd Müller’s 75th birthday, Lewandowski bagged a brace in FC Bayern’s 6-2 victory over Red Bull Salzburg, proving once again he is one of the most legitimate successors to the most successful striker in club history.

The 32-year-old’s gesture shows the ‘Mia san Mia’ philosophy is still alive in the FC Bayern family.

I would like to dedicate my goals to a true legend Gerd Müller, its his 75th birthday today. The scale of what you have achieved drives me to work every day to at least come a bit closer to your greatness. Stay strong King Gerd
